  • Capture One benefits??

    Hi do any of you guys use Capture One for RAW processing?
    Do you think its something thats worth learning? and what advantages does it have over Photoshop camera RAW?
    Thanks Paul

    I use it strictly for capture, as that is its strength. But I use Lightroom and/or ACR for all processing of raw files.
    But it is worth learning the program, if not because they are taking great pains to make up for userbility issues with the upcoming version that will bring it closer to ACR abilities.

        I think Capture One makes much nicer processed files than ACR. I haven't used LR myself, but I've seen and worked on a ton of ACR processed stuff and sent it back so I could do the processing myself.

          ACR is definitely being abused by some users. But I have also converted some users of Capture One over to ACR after showing them where they were going wrong.

          But I agree. Regardless of the program I prefer to process files myself.

          The workflow is smoother in LR. And there is the fact that you have a history of edits that stays with each file that you can undo like Photoshop.
          You have drag correction capabilities in LR for tone, luminosity, hue, Sat, B/W. Meaning you drag in the area you want to change and it changes. It know if you are on yellow and will sat or desat depending on your drag direction for example.
          many more benefits.

            I think they are very close. In some cases Capture one will lead in quality. You may look at the reviews of all three at my site:
            Capture One
            Adobe Camera RAW
            Adobe Lightroom

              I havent compared Capture One with the other two applications, but i usualy work with files processed with it. And i just want to give you a heads up... the Noise reduction and Sharpen settings can mess images up pretty bad, especially high ISO ones.

                my view on the programs is what ever you have will probably work just fine. If you have capture one use it. if you dont Photoshops cs3 or lightroom is just fine. mquest is right that you can over do capture ones settings.

                  Are any of you using CaptureOne as a RAW processing program? Would like to know if there is a vast difference in rendering compared to Photoshop RAW, and what those differences are?

                  Using Lightroom instead of the RAW converter
                  by ir0nma1den
                  I'm trying to absorb as much as possible off of you people so I can get a solid workflow going.

                  Currently I use Lightroom(3) as a photomanagment program where I do a ghetto color correction job, adjust exposure, play with curves, and then I edit in photoshop as a smart object.

                  During my last webinar I was asked what i used for processing raw files from Photographers.

                  The easy answer would be to say whatever software I am feeling is a favorite at the moment. BUt of course that would be a bit arbitrary and not always the best choice.

                  The new version of capture 1 pro is out. How much of an industry standard is processing images with capture 1?

                  I'm presently shooting with Canon. Someone told me that importing photos through Phase One's Capture One, gives much better quality than importing the same file trough PS Camera Raw 5.7 . What do you think, did you experienced it, I personally thought that a RAW file was just a set of numerical data...
