Exporting a 3:2 ORF in 4:3 format

Hi,

Is there a way to export a 3:2 format ORF RAW file in 4:3 format?
It would be nice to export as RAW but JPEG would be fine too.

Cheers,
Ricardo

Re: Exporting a 3:2 ORF in 4:3 format

I think I'm right in saying that raw files keep the original native format, ie, 4/3. You could shoot raw+jpeg to keep both.

Only the jpeg version will be in any "cropped" format.

Re: Exporting a 3:2 ORF in 4:3 format

I chose the 3:2 format and have shot RAW.
When I view the image on camera it's 4:3 with a 3:2 white frame and when I open it with Camera Raw it's in 3:2 format...

I was wondering if I could export a 4:3 file in-camera.

Like Stephen I would have thought that a raw file would retain the native aspect ratio, but obviously not; from your experience it would seem that to export a raw in 4:3 ratio you need to shoot it in 4:3 ratio. Therefore it would make sense to always shoot 4:3 and perform any cropping in pp.

I've found a way to do it by selecting EDIT in PLAYBACK MENU.

Re: Exporting a 3:2 ORF in 4:3 format

I thought the answer was obvious so I just checked and it is as simple as I thought. The RAW file contains the full 4:3 sensor info (along with the crop) so edit the RAW in Olympus Viewer 3 (it will show the full 4:3 picture with the 3:2 crop rectangle), bring up the "edit" panel, select the "edit" tab, select "crop", select "specify aspect ratio", select 4:3, adjust crop rectangle if desired (default will be the full image), export as JPEG.

Thanks for the info.
I don't have Olympus Viewer installed but was able to do it in-camera.

Cheers,
