    Capture One Update Brings Back the Exporter, Adds More Capabilities

    … now back to the old output icon. Performance improvements are always good :).

    I would prefer C1 following topics:

    * Expansion of DAM functions similar to Lightroom
    * to address the alternatively, transparent and continuous interface to Excire Search
    * Use of parts of the CH functions so that negative films digitized with the camera can be developed directly in C1, analog to Lightroom with Negative Lab Pro.

    On your last point Oliver, it would be interesting to know what the clientele is, outside the CH community, for using a camera to digitize negatives. I am doing a lot of work on this just now, taking up from my previous exercises about which I have published material in late 2014. I intend to be publishing new material on my current experimentation and output using NLP in Lr. There is a lot to say about this. I think this is a worthwhile topic, depending on the audience for it (which I would like to hear more about) because I sense two things: (a) there should be a fair bit of interest in the subject given how many gazillions of negatives remain from the century and a half spanning the film era and the remnants of the community still using film, and (b) while using scanners remains workable for all those who don’t need very high resolution,  the scanner era is rapidly shrinking for high-end usage.

    You rightly point out the Capture One Cultural Heritage capability for digitizing negatives within the C1-CH workflow. I’ve seen this in operation here in Toronto, and it is indeed pretty good. Considering however the absolutely enormous price gap between the standard editions of C1 and the CH edition, the company does need some distinguishing features in the CH version with which to capture a segment of the market willing to pay that kind of money for the software. So while I readily subscribe to your vision of seeing negative digitization made available in the non-CH versions of C1, I would be very pleasantly surprised if they did that.

    Hello Marc,

    I agree with you on all points.

    In the German photo community, many photographers are sitting on an uncountable fund of negative film material and slide material.

    Many have used the classic scanner solutions, but they are noticeably disappearing from the market. There are fewer and fewer “really” good scanners, some of which are overpriced.

    So the DSLR/M is increasingly used for camscanning.

    However, no RAW converter solution takes this into account out of the box.

    This could also be seen as a key feature for the group of users who have the need.

    Instead, there are mostly cumbersome, manual workflows to develop a negative or you have Lightroom and can work with Negativ Lab Pro.

    I was hoping that Silverfast would integrate DNGs into its workflow, but that hasn’t materialized yet.

    Oliver

    I would be surprised if LaserSoft Imaging does this. It would be quite a technical effort and I think they are frying other fish that are far more remunerative for them.

    Hello Mark,

    interestingly, a few years ago Silverfast had the RAW converter DC program:

    https://www.filmscanner.info/en/SilverFast_DCPro.html

    This was then discontinued at some point.

    For now I’m making it with MakeTiff from https://www.colorperfect.de/MakeTiff/ . These linearized files can then be processed quite well in Silverfast HDR Studio.
