Capture One Pro 12
We moved to Capture One Pro this year at the same time we moved across to Sony, utilising Capture One’s specific Sony edition.
Capture One isn’t just Sony, they have lots of different options, Capture One Pro 12 is the newest release and supports a ton of cameras and lens profiles; C1 also have a dedicated option for Fuji now.
So what’s new?
Whats with the fanfare? A new version means updates right….well of course, Capture One is no different.
- Luma Range tool / Luminosity Masking
- Gradient Mask
- Radial Masks
These are just three of the main updates that Capture One Pro 12 brings to the table.
Luma Range tool / Luminosity Masking
The new Luma Range mask option allows the user to create masks derived from the brightness of pixels in an image. To use the feature, draw a mask (or create a new fill mask) then press the Luma Range button. Adjust the slider in and out points to “clamp” the values on the mask to limit the range required.
Capture One’s gradient masking feature gets a serious upgrade! Gradient masks are now editable, movable, rotatable and can be made asymmetric – all using the powerful new Parametric masking engine. When adjusting the size (click+drag outer line to change size) use the Shift key to modify symmetrically or Alt key to modify asymmetrically.
The new Radial Mask tool allows for quick drawing of vignette and fall off effects. Using the same Parametric engine as Gradient Masks, Radial Masks can be adjusted, rotated and moved after drawing for maximum control. Use Shift (Mac) key to modify symmetrically.
Some more goodness along the lines of:
- New interface
- New Menu system
- New Keyboard Shortcut Manager
- Plug-ins – Export and publish
- User experience changes
- Extended AppleScript support
- Fujifilm Film Simulations
