ParticipantPosts: 2Capture One No Longer owned by Phase One?on: October 29, 2021 at 11:25 pm
Happy to help.
After doing what adjustments I can do in Capture One, what is left that Capture One can’t handle, I export to Affinity Photo, then will save the TIFF back into Capture One. Once and a while I’ll use Pixelmator Pro because it makes certain edits very easy like removing a utility power line from an image, but Affinity Photo is more powerful and closer to what Photoshop can do so I use that 90 percent of the time.
I write some movie scripts and there are subscription script writing tools but I use Final Draft for the same reason; I buy it once and own it. I also use Roon from Roon Labs for music. They offer a yearly subscription or a lifetime license. I bought the lifetime license.
As I said before, to each his/her own.

In response to Mr. Segal’s previous post stating that the arguments about subscription services are pretty much over with. I appreciate your opinion and for many people that may be true. But it is an opinion. From where I sit, there are several quality photo apps for Apple users that you buy once and get free upgrades for life. Many of these apps will fully replace anything Adobe has, and in some cases are so much easier to use and save a lot of money. For photography, Capture One fills the holes with their standard image adjustments, and ability to nicely catalogue my images.
Personally I avoid subscription software, not just in photography, but in my video work, business applications, and all other software. I upgrade when I feel the need, but mostly those upgrades come for free. To each his own.
To answer the original question in this thread, all I could find is this from Wikipedia. It seems Capture One is its own company now: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capture_One
