Creating a .costylepack file

Postby NN635349410187372550UL » Thu Sep 12, 2019 12:50 pm

Hi all,

I would like to create a .costylepack file for my styles. Does anyone know how to create one?

Working on Mac, what is a costylepack file? I know name-of-style.costyle., but have not yet got a costylepack file.

Kind Regards,
Uwe

I think its a distribution pack for a set of Capture One Styles that one might wish to put in a marketplace.

Isn´t it then, just a folder with different/many -.costyle (s)?

That seems to be it. I don't have or use many styles, but I did acquire the EDITOR'S CHOICE style pack at some time. Now in

Library/Library/Application Support/Capture One/Styles

there is a folder called Editor's Choice, and in Capture One these styles appear in a folder.

So you could apparently just arrange your styles in a folder or folders in Library to suit your requirements.

It's a little unclear in the documentation, but you can create a .costylepack by adding your Styles folder to a .zip and then renaming the extension to .costylepack... that's it!

Read about it here:
https://help.phaseone.com/en/CO12/Editi ... es-Presets

In the "Importing a Styles Pack" section.

I've run into a significant issue where .costyle files created from icc within C1 are not usable on another platform. For example, creating costyle on windows makes files which are unusable on osx... does anyone know anything about this?
