There has to be a way around this. Fundamentally, the job of a RAW program is to
a) Get the best from the file
then b c and d other stuff, including cataloguing, applying effects and adjustments etc.
C1 excels at a) but is so pitiful at the others that IMHO it is only viable because LR has not got its act together on some minor algorithmic sub-routine... not only can't C1 do clever stuff like the local area adjustments of LR, it doesn't even have basic stuff like a vibrance rather than saturation adjustment, though I'm sure with fiddling the same effect can be achieved.
