I got tired of dicking around in the free HxD hex editor (also here) to modify every RAF file by hand. So I found an open source keyboard recorder called AutoHotKey and wrote a script for it. This script creates and saves a second copy whose name is tagged with “_f550EXIF” …
Now, I drag the RAF file and drop it onto this script sitting on my desktop. And it just runs. So cool.
; AutoHotkey Version: 1.x
; Language: English
; Platform: Win9x/NT
; Author: A.N.Other <email@example.com>
; Script Function:
; Template script (you can customize this template by editing "ShellNew\Template.ahk" in your Windows folder)
#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.
PARM = %1%
Run "C:\Program Files (x86)\HxD\HxD.exe" %1%
The timing of the GUI for this editor is really tricky. On my machine, it works fine when I drop from explorer. When I drop from Bridge, it goes wonky and writes over top the original, but I have it save a backup in that case, so the original is still available.
Anyway, try at your own risk. Start with a backup copy of the RAF and see how that works for you. Tweak the timings until you get reliable conversions. This makes life so much easier :-)
By the way … paste it into a notepad window and name the file with the ahk extension. As in …
Good luck … and remember that there is no warranty, either expressed or implied and you use this hack at your own risk.
Could I make that any plainer
