    Here is a fun experiment that shows the flexibility of the C1 color tool.  The attachment is an image I created that is “similar” to the color disk used in Capture One color tools.  (I had to experiment to tweak it to match C1 – details omitted.)  Open it in C1 and go to the color tool.  This will let you see the

    First, under Basic click the “…” button to the right of the color filter buttons.  This shows the filter ranges within the disk.  Set smoothness to zero (for sharp boundaries), and check “view selected color range” (to grey out colors outside of the filter range). The select different wedges.  This shows that my color disk at least matches the hue of the C1 disk.  Now, hit apply to set the filter, and then play with the hue, saturation, and lightness sliders.

    Now go to the Advanced tool and select a point with the eyedropper.  Again, set smoothness to zero and check “view selected color range.”  (You may have to scroll down to the bottom to find that checkbox.)  Now adjust the wedge range – both hue (angle) and saturation (radius) ranges – and, of course, play with hue, saturation and lightness sliders.

    Now, take this image to the Lightroom HSL tool …

    Have fun!
