    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    I have been working with the beta for several weeks and it keeps getting better and better and also much faster processing. There are some new features that are really nice like spilt toning adjustment layers and such. Have fun

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    Main new features:

    1) Adjustment layers with brushes for localized editing

    2) Full B&W adjustment panel with very cool split-toning option built-in

    3) Print straight from C1. And it works fully color-managed in OSX 10.6.5 to my Epson 7900. You do not actually need to process out the final to print it, the raw simply renders as it's sent to the printer.

    4) Stacking of Styles

    5) Perspective correction (keystoning and skew).

    Here is a split-toned B&W I made totally inside C1, nothing done in CS except to add my standard border. Split tone is a very, very light sepia/cool:



    Here is another, a 2-shot pano rendered first as individual split-tones in C1, then only merged and border applied in CS5. Again, slight sepia/cool split-toning:

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    Okay admitting guilt I was working the beta also. This one is almost near infrared in look although i held back from it . If i pushed the green more to the lighter side i may have got close. But i do like this look



    This was a split tone with a bias towards red

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    I installed the trial Pro version. Am I wrong, or are the local adjustments limited to a very limited subset of tools (exposure, color, sharpening)? Non contrast, curve, saturation, etc.?

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    Hmm.. May be i was wrong, but i installed trial version over the existing 5Pro, and it basically hangs with spinny ball on the "License" window.. Tried to kill/restart - same deal. Snow Lepard, latest patches installed.. Is it just taking forever, while preparing/rebuilding existed stuff? Jack or Guy - have any of you experienced this with beta? Or its just my usual dumb luck?

    We have had some issue for sure. Best bet is clean out the system before installing. I mean CLEAN it out. But for some reason just copying over the old one has worked also. I think through playing with this the real culprit file is in your user /pictures/capture one library. Get rid of that before you install. That was my source of problems but every system is different. Now there was 3 beta's so my head is still shaking. LOL

    I have it stable now. Try turning Open GL to never in the C1 preference . Than put it on auto after you get it up and running fine. There some crap shooting in here so be patient. I have had hard freezes several times with the beta's.

    Doug has some references on how to clean out the system before you load.

    Yeah, turns out it was confused as hell by C1 tethered session folder in my home dir. Once i removed it - it worked out. Playing with it now - definitely feels more snappy

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    Doug's instructions on uninstalling C1 are here: http://www.captureintegration.com/20...-one-4-on-mac/

    I first did a simple upgrade, and had a few glitches. Then I followed Doug's instructions, reinstalled, and all is well now.

    This is a very impressive upgrade, well done Phase One.

    Inside the C1 print dialog box, the "ANNOTATION" menu has three choices: None, Description and Filename. "Filename" and "None" work as expected but how do you add text when using "Description"? Or am I misunderstanding how Description is intended to be used.

    Happy Happy Happy.... C1 6.0

    B&W tool is superb, keystone adjustment is fantastic for those us without T&S lenses but for me the local adjustment tool is just awesome.

    £60 for an upgrade, an absolute bargain. When your used to spending so much in the MF game , what a nice treat. Feels like Santa came early!

    I had no problems loading C6 Pro on my Mac. I just love the upgrade as it is much faster browsing RAW files. The B & W and local adjustments are just awesome. I haven't tried the Keystone adjustments yet but I can see the value of it.

    This is an excellent upgrade.

    I was thinking there should be some sort of dialog box to generate the description at the time of printing. C1 has become a formidable competitor in the photo editing market.

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    Tip: do not try to open non-local image files. Accessing files across the local network is dog-slow. I suppose it has to do with C1 building cache files in every folder it touches.

    Just got complains from one of my russian readers on the dreaded openGL stuff - "constantly crashes, sometime cant redraw picture at all". Told him to submit report to C1 team and see what they said

    --

    So far i like it. I wanted better perspective correction tools for oh so long, even without TS, as i use that technique a lot in model shoots to play with dynamic perspective, when lens alone isnt enough. And B&W stuff - i now need to stop myself from turning shots into B&W on some major scale - its addictive ))))

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    My own (humble) attempts at B&W/Sepia with C1v6:

    First, the base color shot - no color adjustments, a little highlight recovery, and a little crop


    Theater Troup - Color by Carlos Echenique, on Flickr

    Straight B&W conversion, default settings

    Light Sepia applies to the shadows only via split toning

    BTW, this is the school's acting troupe, hence the zaniness in the poses...

    Bernard,

    Yeah I know the tools are a little limited, but it's another thing that I can use in C1 without jumping to PS. I'm sure they will develop this as it goes along and add features in. Just like I know the B&W feature isn't as comprehensive as NIK silver effects but it's extremely competent and usable and it's all part of a one stop shop and now I can print from it too, another step out of my workflow.

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    I worked with this very awesome upgrade much of yesterday and love the new features...b&w capabilities, local adjustment for exposure, and the keystone tool among others. I HOPE they are planning to do a local adjustment for CLARITY...that is tops on my list. Eleanor

    PS am I correct is noticing soft proofing in the print window or is this my imagination?

    Yes great point we are getting further and further away from going to CS5 to get work done and in my book that is very very welcome. I am sure they will keep building on it and making it more functional like that. Just the darn local adjustments to darken a hot spot or lighten a dark spot is worth the upgrade. Did that last night processing a shoot using lighting and my rim light was a little hot , wham brushed it a little less exposure and perfect. That was golden as I did not have to bring those 10 images into CS5 and do that. Hard to put a value on time which for a lot of folks is so important. We are on these computers enough and anything to help flow is welcome.

    the screen preview is color managed. However it doesn't provide advanced viewing options such as simulation of paper color.

    Hopefully that (paper color)will come in future updates. Right now the color managed preview is more than Lightroom offers. eleanor

    I have no specific knowledge on plans for the print module (output has never been an area of expertise for me) but in general it is safe to say that Capture One has historically added many features in X.0 releases which were further refined in X.1 and X.2 releases.

    actually C1 has always been more advanced than Lightroom in this regard as you can softproof your files even in the regular viewer (menu "view" -> "proof profile") and C1 also displays the respective histogram (which is really essential).
    This is by the way probably quite a good way to print from C1: clone a variant, set the desired print profile as output recipe, adjust the file (curves, levels, clarity or whatever) in the regular viewer (with the option to zoom in) and finally print without color managment (as the printer profile is already assigned to the file due to the output recipe).
    Photoshop's color management options in softproof mode are still much more advanced but the outlined workflow should do.

    true... and this is something I really like about Phase/C1... they really care about the quality of their tools... not so much about the number of tools available. You just have to look at the LCC tool for example from V3 to today... it has been reworked many times and it is really great today (not that it was unusable in V3, the contrary... but it's soooo much better now).

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    you all are tempting me, but the whole hassle of uninstalling manually to upgrade is really starting to get to me... i have third party profiles that i have lost too many times (they are not easily found) that i use most of the time -- so it always makes me cranky.

    i do love C1 and use it for almost all my RAW conversions, but the lack of automation to uninstall and deactivate/activate easily makes me hesitate even more than the cost of the upgrade... maybe it's because i am perfectly comfortable converting my files and going to CS3 for further working... i just hate that there is no easy way to try before you buy as well.

    like i said, a fantastic converter that i'm just not sure is worth the angst of upgrading.

    This local adjustments business has gotten my attention. I see a 30-day trial in my near future. Does it have a spot healing brush like Lightroom? I am shooting a lot of film these days and that stupid spot healing brush is an absolute godsend for dust spots.

    There is both a dust and a spot tool.

    The dust tool looks for and makes changes to things that look like dust (semi-transparent - not completely obscuring the underlying image detail). It's really meant only for dust and can work somewhat for small film water-drying marks.

    The spot tool is a "hard clone" that stamps overtop of anything (e.g. door knobs, zits etc).

    These changes can be copy/pasted to the rest of the shoot in one click.

    a clean uninstall is not mandatory. Only in case of performance issues or strange behavior of the application a clean un- and re-install may solve the issues. I guess mostly a simple update will do.
    However I would at least delete the proxies (*.cop & *.cof) and the batch queue (~/library/application support/capture one) prior to running the updated version.

    As to the profiles... don't you have a folder where all your important icc profiles are stored as a copy? Back ups are practical ;-)
    Too, you don't have to re-install the profiles all the time. Simply copy your profiles to ~/library/color sync/profiles and they will show up in Capture One under "other" down in the profile list. If you rename the profiles according to the naming conventions of Phase One they will even show up in the profiles menu of your camera. See attachment... I've named some profiles with the name of the camera (without blank spaces) and they show up in the menu of my P45. So I don't even have to scroll down to the "others" column in the profile list. If you have many profiles that you don't use frequently just zip them to keep the profiles menu in C1 clear.

    thank you, thomas.

    i am just on holiday and cranky with technology right now, especially as i just got a new MBA (unexpected)... and i do back up, faithfully, but the stupid profiles (and where they reside) always elude me and i seem to forget where they live between updates... and i hate having to be a nerd when i'm trying to be creative

    I am so pleased with C1 6 that I didn't want to tear myself away from it to write this....
    I often used LR for its grad filter. No longer - I can use the LA in C1 to darken my burned out skies. Among many many other uses.

    Here is a direct comparison (with a raw file) of a high ISO 5DII shot in LightRoom and Capture One.

    Capture One 6 vs LightRoom for High ISO dSLRs.

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    I am extremely pleased with this program. If I could successfully print without having to export to LR3 or CS5 I would be completely happy.
    Can't get good prints using my own or even Epson's profiles with printer color management off.Only get decent print using the printer color management.
    In LR3 using my profiles the prints match my screen perfectly.
    Anybody have any ideas - see my thread

    Thanks for this.
    I downloaded the jpeg comparison. On my calibrated screen there is a huge difference in the skintone rendering - I personally much prefer the Capture One rendering which is much less red. But, which is closer to reality which I realize is a very subjective question

    this can have several reasons...
    make sure to set your color preferences to "perceptual".
    An issue of C1 is it doesn't feature black point compensation for rel.col conversions.

    The color preference is set to perceptual and turning black point compensation on or off makes no difference.
    Could there be a gamma value somewhere in there that messes things up?

    and which RI did you set in the priner tool? Perceptual or rel.col?
    BPC only works in conjunction with rel.col.

    Re BPC: above I was referring to the regular color conversions in C1, not to the printer tool (where BPC just has been introduced).
    The general color preferences in C1 also affect the translation to the monitor profile and depending on (1) your monitor and (2) your monitor profile C1 may clip dark tonal values - this also applies to the preview in the printer tool!
    But again, it depends on your monitor and your monitor profile.

    maybe. hard to tell without seeing your monitor, the prints and your color profiles.

    Re: NEW Capture One 6.0 Release

    Great update for capture one, Local Adjustment and BW tools are superb, at least !
    But why do they put pocess recipes in INCHES : do Danish people use these strange measure units ? This is incredible INCH unit is not an international one, they should have use meter, or in this case centimeters : these are the international measurement units. Hope there will be a correction for this major scientific mistake !

    cm is a choice. Click on the px/in and you get a dropdown with choices.

    Tried local adjustment tools - didn't like it, for reason of brush size being utterly small and no fill tools.. But may be I overlooked something..

    Also noticed that it get horribly slow after using about 5 spot fixes..

    Oh and cursor shape isn't changed properly when you doing spots or pick and switching to other tops panels - feels real funny to click on menus with color picker
