The micaToolbox is being updated to work with LibRAW as a replacement for DCRAW (which is no longer maintained). This means the micaToolbox will work with the latest Canon .cr3 files for example.
You can download a beta release of version 2.1.2 here.
Please give it a go and get in touch if you run into any problems (please use the forum).
Huge thanks to Dave Coffin and the LibRAW team for all their work keeping RAW files accessible.
micaToolbox RAW file handling update
5 thoughts on “micaToolbox RAW file handling update”
Hello, I am trying to use the mica Toolbox for the first time and I am running into trouble with getting my RAW file to open. I have installed LibRaw and placed those folders within the plugins folder. As I am following along with the video tutorial for “Creating a calibrated mspec image” I am receiving an error when I attempt to open my RAW image. A window is popping up “Timeout- DCRAW doesn’t seem to have processed this file”. Am I missing a step somewhere?
Please refer to the forum (http://www.empiricalimaging.com/questions/categories/) and have a look around existing threads if there is an answer to your problem. If you can’t find a solution, please provide a detailed description of your problem, including the precise kind of file you are trying to open, the toolbox version and the OS you are using, when opening a new thread.

I am trying to do a linearization model for my D3100 Nikon, using the colour check passport, but I don’t know where to find the standard colour values to insert into the ImageJ. Can you help me with that?

Hi, I meet the trouble which same to Tabtha Cormier. I took photos via Canon EOS 500D, and the file formats is ‘.CR2’. I perform the first step “generate a multispectral image” as you described in the article (Image calibration and analysis toolbox—a free software suite for objectively measuring reflectance, colour and pattern). But, I cannot open the RAW file. A window is popping up “Timeout- DCRAW doesn’t seem to have processed this file”. Before do this, I have download LibRAW (micaToolbox-2.1.2.beta) and placed it in plugins folder. My operating system is Windows 8. What’s wrong with it? Or I missing a step somewhere? Thanks
