Phase One Releases Capture One 11
« on: December 01, 2017, 09:56:48 AM »

COPENHAGEN, Nov. 30, 2017 – Phase One, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end digital camera systems, today released Capture One 11, a major new version of the industry’s premier RAW conversion and image editing software. This release builds on Capture One’s unmatched color handling, precision-editing tools, seamless tethered support, and native support for more than 400 different camera models. Photographers will enjoy new, highly responsive tools, workflow enhancements and a finely tuned processing engine. Capture One 11 has been designed to deliver a significantly faster and smoother experience.


“We care deeply about what photographers need,” said James Johnson, software Product Manager, Phase One. “Capture One became known as ‘the professionals’ choice in imaging software,’ precisely because of our unrelenting focus on our customers’ needs. We have unique insight, gleaned from years of our own sensor and optics development. Applying that expertise to software makes for a really fantastic photographer experience.”


Layers have been significantly improved for faster, more flexible editing. All adjustment tools in Capture One are now compatible with Layers, making Capture One a truly “layer centric” application.   Furthermore, images can now be annotated in Capture One (handwritten notes and drawings can be added directly on to images) and included in exported PSD files as a separate layer for greater flexibility. Re-engineered tools help optimize color adjustments. Plus, more robust catalog performance improves the overall experience.

NEW FEATURES AND TOOLS IN CAPTURE ONE 11


NEXT LEVEL LAYERS


In response to customers’ needs, masking tools have been further developed, and new features and overall performance advances have been introduced. New tools have been added to refine and feather the mask after drawing, or adjust the opacity of a layer to control the impact of local adjustments. With more tools available locally and with increased performance in masking, Layers in Capture One are now more dynamic than ever.



  • Layered Workflow

  • Layer Opacity

  • Feather Mask

  • Refine Edge

  • Grey Scale Mask


MORE STREAMLINED WORKFLOW


Annotations and graphics as Overlays can be added to images and exported in PSD files as separate layers. Crops can be respected or added as a Path when exporting to PSD files, permitting the full image to be used later for retouching. An individual watermark may be included as a separate layer in an exported PSD file to permit greater control during later editing.








  • Annotations (Export as a layer when using PSD)

  • Overlay in output (as a layer when using PSD)

  • Export Crop to Path (when using PSD)

  • Watermark as a Layer (when using PSD)


DESIGNED TO ENHANCE PERFORMANCE


Capture One has been further optimized to increase overall performance. Improved color handling through re-engineered color tools helps ensure optimal layered color adjustments. Color readouts can now be viewed in LAB mode aiding customers who wish to measure image output to critical values. Improved performance in Catalogs makes for an overall better experience.



  • Editing Speed

  • Import Duplicate Checker

  • Color Improvements

  • LAB Readout

  • Catalog improvements

Pretty much 100% of our fashion photographer customers use Capture One particularly during tethered capture. It may not have the mass market appeal of Adobe but these are the guys at the top of the tree so it must say something about Phase One.

I've been using Capture One since version 8. The color control, RAW processing, and masking controls are lightyears better than Lightroom. I save Lightroom for all my batch time-lapse work.

It does have a steep learning curve, but is much more powerful than LR, plus you can buy the "perpetual license" instead of a subscription, which is nice, and means you don't have to deal with that Adobe Creative Cloud always telling you about updates and trying to get you to buy Acrobat DC.

Just wondering what you like about Capture One over Lightroom?  I tried a demo of Capture One at one stage a while back but I've never really given it a serious try.

I downloaded it this morning to give it a try.  I loaded one folder of images into a catalog, and found that I will need a lot more time to be familiar with it. 

Its slower than Lightroom, loading that folder with only 700 images to the catalog seemed to take forever.

I could learn it and would probably be happy, but I now have lightroom / photoshop paid up for 18 months.

I'm no expert at Capture One, and still use Lightroom, too, but it's a bunch of little things really.  The black and white conversion with grain options is really good.  And for color, the controls are much more precise--basically a color wheel setup like with video editing (rather than sliders).  The tone adjustments are really nice, too, and just seem to use "better" algorithms than LR.  Same thing with the RAW converter--it just seems to get things looking a little better.  And there's a file management option, "projects," that lets you keep all the photos together, so you can move them around onto different disks as one package (very handy for me sometimes).  And the tools to place text and watermarks on the photos is much more powerful (not just for protection, but for client review and reference). 

Those are just a few things I've been using, mostly after watching tutorials on YouTube.  Because it is harder to use.

I've been running with the v10 trial since I decided to wean myself off LR and look at the (non-subscription) alternatives like Alien Skin Exposure 3, ON1 RAW, and of course C1. Main things in this update for me:

  • Ability to dial-back changes in a layer by reducing layer opacity
  • Ability to apply a preset/style within a layer rather than globally

This update seals the deal for me; when my trial is up I'll be forking out for C1.

I really couldn't agree more. I've been a loyal Adobe evangelist since the late 90s. I know Lightroom inside and out. I was encouraged to give capture one a try after hearing it had a superior raw converter and I was blown away.

While its true that Capture One has a steeper learning curve to take FULL advantage of the options, with the tools I was able to learn in an hour I was already making better images than I was able to with years of Lightroom experience. I edited a few images I'd already taken a crack at with LR and was immediately happier with the results from Capture One.

I picked up Version 10 on a Black Friday Special, and guess what, even though I bought 10, my license is good for 11 too, because they've allotted a grace period of over a month! Hard for me to find a complaint about this company.

You might want to try reducing the size of the image previews (Preferences | Image | Preview Size).  It's variable, because there's a "quick JPEG" output option that exports using the same szie, and I think many people just keep it at a size clients want for proofs.  But the default to me seems rather large.

A question for you C1 users: How precise is the masking in C1?

While I can make masks in LR they are tedious to make and are far less precise than in PS.
Is C1 more like PS in this regard?
 
The brushes, gradients and spot healing tools act very much like a layer in that I can control the intensity of the correction and delete it as I see fit. However the selection tools, while recently improved, are still crude.

I'm still a newb in C1 but regardless, here's my perspective. There are some cool things in C1 that aren't available in LR6 (dunno about LR7 - as I'll call it for simplicity's sake):
  • Copy a mask that you created on another layer, and if required invert it
  • Create a reasonably precise mask based on a color range (subject to image suitability)
  • Sync the brush and eraser brush settings with a simple checkbox
  • Instantly create a layer with a full 100% coverage mask (handy for preset application, global adjustments etc)

Other than that, it's very much like LR, except that you don't have the radial filter. The brush has an auto mask option but in my limited experience it's no better than LR. As in LR, I find it's often better to do a crude "wash" over an area then clean it up using the eraser with auto mask on. C1 has brush options specifically linked to the use of pens / tablets, so it might give a superior experience to LR if you use that hardware; I don't, I'm strictly a mouse and keyboard guy.

If a more experienced C1 user has more to input on this, I'm all ears!

Downloaded the CP1 v11 trial today and had a quick look at it. It's clear I am going to need to learn a bit about it before I can give it any sort of real test. Will see if I can find time to do that over the next weeks.

I recall reading an article a year or two ago which claimed you could get pretty much identical results from CP1 and LR, it's just that the two programs take a different approach to getting there.  The claim was LR is consistent with how it approaches each photo and aims to give a similar starting point for subsequent editing, while CP1 attempts to guess what would work for each photo so sometimes it gets you closer to your end point (or even to your end point) straight away, although sometimes it's not at all what you are looking for.  I have never tried to investigate further though.
