We Hear You

On Thursday, July 22, Capture One launched a new update (14.3.0) for Capture One 21. Designed to increase functionality and reduce complexity across the varied workflows, the update aimed to meet the evolving needs of the Capture One community – a community of professionals both rich and diverse in their needs. The last week has revealed to us that not all those needs were fulfilled. While striving to create the most cutting-edge tools for our community, some of the long-established processes and tools our users rely upon were unfortunately lost in this recent update. This was never our intention. As we continue to listen to our community’s feedback, we hope that this will guide us in our future endeavors to deliver the best solutions to fulfil the needs of loyal customers. We hope that this feedback can evolve into a positive conversation – one that will allow us to better understand how to meet the multiple needs of our community – present and future. We are profoundly grateful for the pivotal role that professional photographers …

How Sarah Silver creates dynamic beauty with Capture One on M1 Mac

Fashion, beauty and movement photographer and Capture One ambassador Sarah Silver discovers the incredible performance when she pairs Capture One 21 with the powerful new M1 Mac. For Silver, working with a community of creatives is one of the most rewarding aspect of being a professional photographer. A former aspiring ballet dancer, it should come as no surprise that motion and dance figures prominently in her work, and her most recent shoot at Jack Studios in NYC is no exception. Taking advantage of the new Apple M1 Mac with Capture One 21, Silver teamed up with longtime favorite makeup artist and beauty director, Walter Obal. In the past, the two have pursued projects that explored makeup application that utilizes shimmers, cream colors, and iridescent hues in macro beauty photography. “Technology has drastically evolved since Walter and I started collaborating in 2002,” said Silver, “Now you can take a picture of an eye and create a stop-motion animation that captures the literal applying and removal of makeup. You can build up a look and run it …

CEO interview: The power and potential of M1

In an interview with PetaPixel, Capture One CEO Rafael Orta reveals why the team re-architected Capture One to run more powerfully than ever on Apple Silicon – and what it means for the future of editing. While Apple computers powered by M1 can run non-native applications through Rosetta, the hardware’s full potential is only seen with applications that have been built specifically for it. Capture One is set to finally make the transition and its CEO explains what the process was like and what was involved. In an exclusive interview with PetaPixel, Capture One’s CEO Rafael Orta reveals that the company is very close to releasing a native version of its popular photo editing application for Apple M1 computers, but doing so was not easy. “For us, it was quite a big task,” Orta says. “We used the opportunity to re-architect the way the entire application works and looked at how we could optimize based on the new hardware. As soon as the M1 got announced last year we got to work importing the code …
