hello, I just bought pixelmator photo for my Ipad air 3. The RAW files of my Olympus camera have .ORF extension, how do I open them? in case the program does not support this type of files, can I transform them to work? Could you recommend me how to do it? thank you

Hi Martin,

do you find your camera here:
if not your RAW-File is not supported in the RAW-Engine of iPadOS.
Unfortunately Apple hasn‘t added „newer“ cameras in a while. My camera is from end of 2019 and I still can‘t process the Raw-Files on my iPad/Pixelmator, which is really annoying.

@Pixelmator: Is there anything you can do to „hurry“ things up?
The only app on iPadOS which does support recent cameras is Lightroom, this puts you on a disadvantage?!

Not really, to be honest, other than work on creating our own RAW decoding engine. Which is possible, but not in the near future.
