Capture One Updated

Capture One Updated

I opened Capture One this morning to find a new update in the update notification panel. If you're a Capture One Pro 9 user, 9.0.3 is now available.

Here's what's new according to the release notes:

Bug Fixes

Mac Bug Fixes

  • Keyword library tool: fix keyword sorting (better handling of lowercase and uppercase characters)
  • Mask from colour correction: make sure filled masks are properly saved after being created
  • LCC for IQ 100MP fixed
  • Highlight recovery for A7RII fixed

Windows Bug Fixes

  • Keywords in keywords library are now sorted in a case insensitive way
  • Fixed issue where adjustments made on masks from colour selections do not always stick once you restart Capture One
  • Fixed local adjustments selection points sometimes missing
  • Fixed applying LCC sometimes fails or sometimes wrongly disables the controls for colour cast, dust removal and uniform light
  • Signature updated to use SHA256 – (certificate changes mean you may experience warning messages to the validly of the installer on first run)
  • LCC for IQ 100MP fixed
  • Highlight recovery for A7RII fixed

Known Issues

The release notes also list the following ongoing known issues with Capture One Pro 9

All users

  • Browsing folders containing unsupported image files may affect application performance.
  • Previews from earlier versions of Capture One may be updated. In some cases, this can affect the application performance the first time images are viewed in this version of Capture One.
  • If using a non US laptop keyboard it might be preferable to change some of the standard keyboard shortcuts.
  • Editing images in external applications other than Adobe Photoshop might result in unexpected behaviour.
  • Operation under virtualisation software (e.g Parallels, Hackintosh etc) may cause instability. We do not recommend you use these OS configurations.

Mac Users

  • It is only possible to show the Capture One toolbar in “Icon Only” mode.
  • Live View over USB can stall without the use of a repeater.

Windows Users

  • Windows drivers are required for some older models of Canon DSLR cameras to be
  • able to shoot tethered. These drivers are available from Canon’s web site.
  • If you have Bonjour 2.0.3 installed you may experience problems with Capture Pilot.
  • Bonjour 2.0.2 (shipping with Capture One 9) and 2.0.4 (shipped with iTunes) have
  • been tested to work with Capture Pilot. To check the version number of Bonjour, go
  • to ‘Control Panel’ and select ‘Programs and Features’.
  • Importing a catalog can result in the last picture not getting imported.
  • Operation under RAMDisk by Dataram is known to cause issues with disk labeling. Capture One is not supported with this configuration.

A Question For Any Retina iMac Users out there...

There had been some reports of issues with Capture One pro 8 and Apple's Retina iMac. Some users had reported crashing when Open GL is enabled, and Phase One acknowledged this. A reader had emailed to ask me if I know if this problem had been fixed or not in Capture One Pro 9 and as I don't have a retina iMac myself I can't test it. I haven't been able to find out any information online, so if there's anyone reading this who's running Capture One Pro 9 on a Retina iMac, if you could let us know how it's performing by leaving a comment, that would be great!
