    This is fabulous - even though I use Capture One regularly I always learn something new from listening to David and this is one of his best - if David is the teacher then get the whole series is my advice - well worth the investment

    I might recommend this class to someone who knows next to nothing about Capture One, but "Advanced Editing" this is not. In short, the course title is way off base. BTW, I've been using Capture One for five weeks and I have much to learn, but I took nothing away from this course.

    In this class David shows what editing can be done in CaptureOne and when it is time to use an external editor. There are lots of features in the program that David brings out to make the editing quicker and easier. The class also shows how much can be done in the program without going to an external editor, thus saving time and effort in editing. As usual, David presents the information in a manner that is easy to follow.
