The following was posted in the RT forum.


I suppose DK people speak only of what is or will be possible with DK.

It is absolutely possible to include XMP data in Tiff based raw files,
in peculiar NEF and DNG (I don't know for other formats). You can do
that with exiftool.

The issue is that photographers don't like modifications of their
original raws as they fear corruption or incompatibility with some SW.

So, other possibility is to include XMP metadata in copy of original
file either in same format or transcoded in DNG.

for example, Capture NX saves processing parameters inside a copy of the
NEF file.

Question : is DK able to read XMP data inside raw files ?
