Capture One workflow
I though I could share my workflow with Capture One, which imo, if it still has some issues, is the best raw converter regarding IQ…
I use the latest version of Capture One Pro (4.8.1)
I get the best result with the 1DsIII files with these settings:
For a good start, instead of Standard Film curve:
Basic characteristics curve = Linear response
Levels Mid @ 0,10
Curve Brighten shadows
Sharpness 180 - 1,5 - 1,0
Noise reduction 35 - 45
Vignetting 0,15 EV
Then for all pictures I do an auto exposure and HDR.
These are my new BASICs, for special output I do tweak one or the other, but if I don't need special effect on saturation or WB, I'm set and the 16 bit Adobe RGB file exported to CS4 is almost ready for small adjustments…
If I need to largely upsize the file (in CS4) I reduce the amount of sharpness before export form Capture One.
By chrono order:
Auto Noise Ninja noise reduction with zero sharpness, followed by 50% opacity fade
Highlight/Shadow : shadow 5 to 10 - 30 - 30 Highlights 5 to 10 - 30 - 30 Color correction 0 - Mid tone Contrast 10 to 20
50-0,6-0 optimized sharpness
Since I have adopted this workflow, I have divided by 2 the time spent on each file. Cool!
These settings are for the Canon 1DsIII, they may change a lot depending of the camera used (and the lens also ;-)
