Having just gone back to trying to use the latest version of FoCal im finding it just as frustrating as it was a few years ago. I cant believe this software hasn't been fixed in all this time.
The two main issues im having is i cant use raw files for checking, the program just doesnt want to know, even though its checked in the settings.The other is just lack of consistency in how the program works.
With all the target check boxes ticked id have thought that would be good to go, but no. Some times i get a final image in the After window, most of the times i dont. sometimes the same lens that took around 11-13 shots now doesnt stop at all. I get an error that im up to 15 but even though i might click stop it keeps going. In the end after about 25 ill just pull the plug as its not going anywhere.
This happens randomly and there are no environment changes etc.
This does not give me confidence in the final MAF setting that the software suggests, especially as it seem to do random things and i cant get +1 on the first try, +6 on the second etc.
