Important to know is that Ps or Affinity Photo are pixel editors but
no way converters. Pixel editors can only work on images files like
.Jpegs, .Tiff, .Png etc.

Within pixel editors, there may be an auxiliary software to convert
data files — like Camera RAW in Ps or Persona in AP — that have
severe limitations that may be of advantage only to the occasional
use of data conversion.

RAW files are not image files but data files. A proper converter will
not have the same limitations in terms of processing but, at this time,
no converter has enough pixel edition capability to include such tool
in its description. A pixel editor is not a converter  — and vice versa.

I use two different specialised and powerful applications.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

Convert to what?

Until you add some details about your intent, any answer will be speculative.

So: what are you wanting to accomplish?
