v6 vs v7 has different grades

Postby NNN634358872786643188 » Wed Oct 31, 2012 3:05 pm

Hi all,

So, what happens when you go to use v7 to open a session created in v6, and want to re-process to look the same as they did in v6?

So far, with the same settings, they don't look the same; v7 is darker, more contrast, maybe some other things I'm not going to faff around with, because I want it to be the same. I get that it may have better shadow detail, better noise, better this, better that, I get it, but essentially I want them to feel the same, not create work by having to re-grade files.

What am I doing wrong? Is it anything to do with this 'engine', whatever that is? Do I need to upgrade it? What settings will be permanently altered?

For me, I'm looking to spend less time using computer software, not more.

By the way, I have a support case, but it's lacking the whole 'support-y' thing.

Regards,
Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

When you open images you adjusted with CO6, in CO7, CO7 does apply the CO6 engine to prevent changes. Upgrading the engine to CO7 might alter your image (makes it typically darker, but not always).

Can you confirm whether the change in CO7 occurs with the CO6 engine?

Hello Paul,

Yes, I haven't upgraded the engine.
In BASE CHARACTERISTICS tool, Engine is Capture One 6

All I have done is to archive v6, replace with v7 in Applications folder, open it, open a session.

Jonathan

Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for the update. I suspect that even with the CO6 engine, some sliders are more effective. I think in particular of the HDR slider. Did you use them in CO6 for the images you opened in CO7.

I have to get deeper into this myself, we are all just scratching the surface here, aren't we? ;-)

Hi Paul,

Yes we had a bit of shadow recovery on the file, but the issue seems to be with contrast and perhaps a bit of exposure and saturation. Whatever it is, they're not the same grade, and this makes work, makes the upgrade path a steep one.

Regards,
Jonathan
