Capture one question

I'm not to familiar with Capture one.
I'm hoping someone can provide me with some info.

So at times I will receive already processed jpeg files from clients with a certain look that they want the job to have. These jpegs will be for color reference only, plus whatever markups have been made. In addition I would receive raw files.
My question is what exactly do I need in addition to the raw's to have the same settings the client used to create the processed jpegs? And how would I import those settings into capture and apply them to the raw files?

Any info would be greatly appreciated, possibly a link or two to a video tutorial.
I'm using Capture one 7 pro.

Thanks

Re: Capture one question

Your client gave you a plate of spaghetti bolonese as well as a package of pasta, 12 jars of spices, herbs, salt, pepper, chile peppers. What you need is the recipe. The client could have adjusted one or two attributes when he processed the RAW into a jpg or he could have made 500 adjustments. Unless he recorded what he did, there is no way to know and you are going to have to twiddle brightness, contrast, saturation, clarity, and whatever else trying to recreate what the client did.
Cheers, Murray

Re: Capture one question

Now I'm just hungry

When you say recorded, what exactly do you mean? The session file?
I realize that many adjustment could have been made and I could just ask for processed tiffs, but many times the *look* that someone's is after will clog the blacks or blow out the whites even though they want to see the details in the final product. So what I really need to know is what recorded capture one data my client needs to supply me in addition to the raw's so that I could plug it in on my end and get the same result and how to plug it in

Cheers

Re: Capture one question

Capture One has a feature which exports all of the applied settings when an image is saved. You can find the details in the Capture One user manual.

Re: Capture one question

When using C1, as well as Lightroom, you don't actually work on the images, you work in the catalogue, so unless they send you the catalogue file as well, they just expect you to process the images in a way that you get the same result.

Or you ask them for they're cat file.

See attachment.

Re: Capture one question

Thanks Mr Monday and DJ.

A few of my clients process their images in a session format rather than catalogue.
I did get the session file I needed. But opening it up in Capture one on my end and importing the raws didn't change any of the settings to match the clients output.

I did some research and as it turns out all I really needed is the setting folder with the files that end in .cos.
As I knew all the files were processed with the same settings all I had to do is replace one .cos file and that gave the result I was looking for, to which I applied it to all the raw files.

Re: Capture one question

Tell the client to pack the raw images they want you to work on into EIP. Thats a Capture One package that attaches all the adjustment to the RAW file. This way when you open the EIP files in Capture One you will have all the adjustments for it.

All they have to do is right click on the image in the image browser inside CO7 and choose "Pack as EIP". They can choose more than one image at once and right click and choose the EIP option.

Hope that helps
