Re: A LucisArt contender has arisen!

They are different, but they cross paths at a certain point (a lucky accident on Adjust's part!). And LA is known for its HDR effects, so the comparison is valid.

Re: A LucisArt contender has arisen!

Guys, I downloaded LucisArt.
But I don't know really how to use it! I mean, how to get effect similar to Dave Hill's.
I tried so many options :<

Help please.

Re: A LucisArt contender has arisen!

Ayumi, Dave Hill may or may not use LucisArt. There's a huge discussion here at RP about his technique (which no one has successfully dissected yet!).

LucisArt enables you to reveal detail in your image you wouldn't otherwise notice. I assume you're working with LucisArt 2? Experiment with each preset (starting with Sculpture and Winslow) and see what the sliders do to your image. Also try mixing your original image back in, while checking the Show Original button to see what's happening.

The upcoming LucisPro 6 won't have the presets, buttons and sliders as you see them; there will be two main sliders (plus other separate options) that when used in combination with each other can cover the whole range of possible Lucis-like effects much more fluidly and easily.

Re: A LucisArt contender has arisen!

Thank you very much for answer.
But I saw some examples which were done with LA, and they were so similar to Dave's work! I know that he is using much more than only one plug-in but I'm still searching for my 'style' in photoretouching/manipulating.
I hoped that it would help me... Is there any tutorials maybe about LA?

Re: A LucisArt contender has arisen!

As for tutorials, there should be some appearing on the LucisArt developer's website soon, once LucisPro 6 is released. In the meantime, see what you can learn from the info they posted here and here.

Re: A LucisArt contender has arisen!

Alright, I got Lucis Pro 6 today (Mac version). I did some quick comparisons between it and Topaz Adjust – nothing scientific, just quick.

It seems they both have their own unique style! Though Lucis Pro seems to come off a little less gimmicky, perhaps more conservative.

Obviously, each plug-in can produce an endless stream of effects by virtue of slider and setting adjustments, so these examples are by no means the whole story.

Feel free to play with the originals.

Cool Re: A LucisArt contender has arisen!

Better yet, save yourself a penny and get Topaz Adjust for $49.99 and you'll be even happier.
