Today we are happy to announce the release of Capture One Pro 9. The absolute latest in raw conversion and tethering software, Phase One’s Capture One Pro 9 adds several features requested by photographers to aid in the image editing process.
Capture One 9 is just the latest example of Phase One’s ability and willingness to respond to customer feedback and to provide the best tools available for optimum image quality.
Some of the new features added in Capture One 9 include:
Revised contrast engine – Changes have been made to the algorithms of color, saturation and contrast. And the color editor has been revised to align design with the color balance tool. Handles are made easier to use and adjust, and the tool is now scalable when undocked.
Masks from color editor – The color editor now allows the user to make a mask from a color edit.
New Brush pack – Tool changes include the addition of flow, airbrush, straight line brushing, and the ability to link brushes.
Luma curves and local curves – Added to the curve tool palette, Luma curves can be used to create contrast curves without affecting saturation. Also, curves can be used locally.
Battery status for toolbar – This new tool can be placed on the tool bar where it gives a power supply overview to the attached tethered camera, warning photographers of low power during a shoot.
Export EIP for catalogs – Catalog users can now benefit from EIP export for easy transportation of RAW and Settings, off system. In the Export originals panel, there is now an option to Export as EIP. Sessions users can also choose to Export originals. This creates a workflow in which the original RAW and adjustments are not packed – instead a copy is made, packed as EIP.
DNG colors – This new feature allows Capture One Pro to treat and display supported camera files that have been converted to DNG (and include the RAW file in the DNG package), as if in their original format.
In addition to its new tools, changes have been made in regards to asset management including:
Keywords Tool – Keywords may be added and removed from images. The standard Capture One tool tips for local reset, local copy apply, pre-sets and help are available for this tool.
Keyword Libraries – Used to manage the list (or lists) of keywords in a catalog or a session. As the Keywords tool adds keywords to images, the document Keyword Library is populated. This forms a keyword list for any and all terms in the current document and is unique for the session or the catalog.
Sortable Keywords – Unique to Capture One Pro 9, users are able to reorder keywords in the Keywords tool for single image selections.
On top of its added features, Capture One Pro 9 offers more for your money with an additional activation, now allowing up to three machines to be activated simultaneously per single user license!
