As the release of Photoshop CS3 and Camera Raw 4 gets into the wild, there are some questions regarding whether the Camera Raw 4 settings-which look a lot like Lightroom’s raw settings-are interoperable with Lightroom beta 4.1. No says Lightroom product manager Tom Hogarty in this Lightroom forum thread.
Tom says “Camera Raw 4.0 in the CS3 beta will not have interoperability with Lightroom beta 4.1 settings. As you can see, many of the controls have converged but the settings were written in a different manner for the beta versions of Lightroom and cannot be read by Camera Raw 4.0. We’ll have this fixed when we ship Lightroom 1.0 so that Lightroom and Camera Raw 4.0 respect each other’s settings.“
