Saving Session Templates

So if you remember, we spent a fair bit of time setting up this more in-depth session. We had to make the different look folders. We had to set up our naming convention and so on and so forth. Now it's very likely once you go through a process of designing that this sort of perfect session for you. Then you want to save that, because you don't want to have to recreate that session structure every single time you set up to do a tethered shoot. So once you've made a set up like this, go through, get your naming convention set up exactly as you wish. Everything set up in the session how you want even to the point of deciding which folder is going to be your first catcher folder. In here you might like to make a folder called Just Test or Lighting Test, which is the one you're going to fill up with the images you're going to dump, for example. So once you have this nice session set up, what we can do is say file; save as template, like so. And then I can call this My Tethered Setup, for ex...

ample. And save that. So now all the hard work we've done in creating our super wonderful session that makes sense for us is now saved as a template, which we can recall instantly. So if I close down this session and we say file; new session, once more. Lets just call this Another Session. Notice we've got here, templates. So the one I just made was called My Tethered Setup, so if I choose that and say okay. Straight away you can see what's happened. I've got my three different look folders setup. Look one is already targeted as the capture folder. If we go to next caption naming we've got my document name and collection name like so already set up too. So that's already handled as well. And various other things in the session also take on from the template too. So that simply means no additional setup, you can just get going straight away and then you're ready to shoot immediately. So that makes life much, much faster. There's no limit to the number of templates you can have. There is just a simple text file that describes a bit more. If we look in the finder, you can see on the capture, its already made those folders. Of course if I wanted to just modify this template a bit, lets say we needed to do a lighting test, I can put that there, simply drag that over to favorites, highlight it, option C and now we're ready to go again with my capture folder. So that will save you a huge amount of time in setup, once you've nailed down exactly how you want to, you know, run with your sessions.

This is a good overview of Capture One 10. The course is well structured and presented logically and progressively with clear and concise examples. The software is intricate and the amount of details presented will benefit from a second or third viewing, along with sufficient practice. David is an excellent teacher, slow enough to follow, fast enough to keep the listener's interest. I would agree with a previous reviewer that the shooting session was uninspired but the tethered demo was thoroughly useful nevertheless for someone to become an assistant, for instance. If you have ever used LR in this role, you will appreciate the power and stability of C1 for tethering. With regards to the comment about this class being non-creative; before you can run you have to walk and this course is all about understanding how to operate the software not about what you eventually want to do with it. Capture One is well designed, speedy and its homogeneous interface makes it easy to get to a result once you have a good knowledge of its layout and principles, compared for example with LR which is all over the place with modes, inconsistent and slow operations. Likewise, the C1 color editor is miles ahead of LR color functions, in simplicity and overall efficiency. This class is about mechanics for a reason; creativity is a parallel stream. It would have been beneficial to have a module highlighting major differences with LR for people migrating to Capture One as the word on the street is that C1 is hard. I would suggest to listen in to convince yourself of the contrary. All in all, I recommend this class; it is time well invested if you want to become more comfortable with Capture One and discover its potential.

The course is excellent and David does a nice job. However, I'm an advanced armature, not a professional. I had my own personal color darkroom, then Photoshop/Bridge, and NIK which I still use occasionally. My intention is to rely on Capture One which I purchased about 90 days ago. I would have appreciated a SIMPLE, here is how you load (Import) an image, "save" or "save as" and how to simply export an image (Variant). Yes those items are covered but, David has a tendency to casually and very quickly jump from Tool Tabs or Cursor Tools or the Tool Bar and then magically it's done and he has moved on. How did he do it. Based on David's training, I love the results I get with Capture One Pro. Yes, I know this is not Photoshop - it's much better. I never used Lightroom. I added variant to my vocabulary and I understand all the tools. I still struggle with the simple import, save, save as, and export of a image I worked on and cropped, then trying to consistently open that image as I see it in Capture One Pro. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't and I don't know why. I will continue to re-review the course materials and I will figure it out. I know there is something simple I missed as David navigated the various tools and pull downs. I recommend this class but it does little for the armature. Capture One Pro is second nature to him and he knows all the ins and outs. I would help me a lot if he just add a 5 minute intro, importing an image from a folder, just crop it, then export the variant and open it in Photoshop.

I recently purchased Capture One because I needed a RAW converter that was more dependable and also more reliable when it came to shooting tethered. I also noticed that many of the photogs I follow really enjoy using Capture One and rave about its efficiency. After looking at a few YouTube videos I decided that I needed something more thorough and of course CreativeLive delivered. This is an excellent course and David Grover is a superb instructor. His in depth and thorough knowledge of the software is obvious but his manner of speaking and the simplicity with which he provides directions makes it easy to learn Capture One and lets you appreciate a sophisticated and expertly engineered software. If you're working with Capture One 11, layers is a little different than in version 10 but otherwise everything David discusses is the same. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and will continue to refer back to sections as needed. Thank you Creative Live and David Grover!!
