Hello sepa

Tried your 0.3.3 test version with some interesting results. The program still fails but all raw file are converted and only one is moved to the output destination directory. Would it be possible that BarracudaGUI is trying to move files that have not been written to the hard drive completely or the conversion process is still being implemented. I have include the text from the xml crash dump, if you want the other two dump files, let me know as I have them as well. Good luck and let me know if I can help some more!!

Hey Sepa

This is what I tried:

1. I had a space in my output destination folder PathDNGHDROutput=D:\CanonTools\CR2HDR DNG and get the following result:

Both images are converted but only 1 of the images was moved to the output path before program crashes (Note: this works fine in Barracuda 0.3.1)

2. Removed space in my output destination folder PathDNGHDROutput=D:\CanonTools\CR2HDR_DNG and get the following result:

Both files or converted and copied to output destination path before crashing program.

3. Tried 4 images with no spaces in any of the path names, all images are converted but only 2 of the images are moved to the output path before Barracuda program stop working.

Hope this help as this going to be a great little program when all the bugs get worked out!!
Hey Sepa

Got the BarracudaGUI Version working fine and had a chance to try your latest version. Unfortunately I get the following error when running it:

Thanks szDE

Took all spaces out of the folder names and BarracudaGUI works like it should.

D:\Canon Tools\Dual_ISO Raw

Spider might be onto something as I also get the same result!!

Hey Spider

Tried processing your file and get the same errors that I have been getting with DualISO photos taken on my Canon 7D. Do you get the same run time error as indicated in my earlier post? I hope Sepa can get this resolved as it looks like a great application and I would like to incorporate this GUI in my post processing workflow.
Yes I have also tried it with the latest cr2hdr.exe Dated: 01/23/2014 Size: 326 kb and get the same result running the conversion through BarracudaGUI. I'm guessing it could be two possible problems:

1. I have a version of exiftools.exe that cannot read the proper information.
2. The required EXIF information is not within the raw CR2 files.

This is just my educated guess and could be something totally different. If someone else can successfully convert the files I have posted through there install of BarracuadGUI, I would then be able to eliminate some possible scenarios. Thanks in advance!!

Below is a link to a screen shot showing the run-time process of BarracudaGUI, hope it helps to solve this problem:

Hey Sepa

Thanks for the reply and here are a couple of files to work with. I do have all three application located in the same folder with the following details:

cr2hdr-hot.exe   Date: 01/26/2014    324 kb
exiftool.exe        Date: 07/13/2013  4993 kb
dcraw.exe          Date: 08/01/2013    536 kb

Dual2419.cr2  is a photo that I took with my Canon 7D
0R0A0640.cr2 is an image taken with a Canon 5D used by a1ex on his thread to illustrate Dual_ISO

Both CR2 images can be converted to DNG with just the cr2hdr-hot.exe application located in the same folder as the above mentioned files. Converting both files with BarracudaGUI, gives me the errors as mentioned before and then copies them into the export folder as CR2 files after conversion process has failed.

Dual ISO Build date 2013-09-29
Have been trying to get the BarracudaGUI program to recognize my Dual ISO CR2 files form a Canon 7D and also a Dual ISO CR2 file posted form Alex on his thread. Keep getting the following errors:

Error: Could not get Exif value (ISO)
Error: Could not get Exif value (CreateDate)

All files can be converted directly with the cr2hdr.exe program, just not through the BarracudaGUI. Looks like a great little program that I would use on a regular basis if I could get it to convert files on my system. Have tried program in Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and also Windows 8.1 64bit with the same results. Help on this would be greatly appreciated!!

Here are my BarracudaGUI.ini setting:

PathCR2HDRInput=D:\Canon Tools\Dual_ISO Raw
PathDNGHDROutput=D:\Canon Tools\CR2HDR DNG
PathPostprocessor=D:\Canon Tools\CR2HDR\cr2hdr-hot.exe
