    Hallo David,

    in which situations would you recommend to start with developing a session by denoising all files captured with high ISO values.

    Which setting would you recommand for the denoise-tool?

    is the further workflow in C1 different for such primarily denoised files compared to the undenoised files, (esp. HDR-tool, Clarity)

    Thank You and kind regards

    Peter

    Hi David,

    Wondering if there's a best time to set up AI masks. Before or after I've done shadow/highlight management. 

    Cheers

    Thanks for the comments Peter.  Will try to address those in the session.

    Good questions!  We will address the supposed "order" or how you are meant (or not) to edit.

    I find the balance of shadow/highlight <> clarity <> sharpening <>  noise_reduction an interesting exercise of trade-offs when working with low light images.  Any pointers on a more universal approach to manage the interaction of these features would be welcome.

    Good question Gus.  Can certainly look into that.

    Hi David,

    glad to see this topic being addressed. Besides managing shadows an highlights, I'd love to learn something about how export settings may affect perceived noise in scaled down images and how export sharpening may interact with that, especially because of export sharpening affecting the whole image. For some reason my scaled down exports often do appear more "grainy" or noisy than the same image exported in full resolution and viewed at the same size scaled down in any random jpeg viewer. I wonder if I get some crucial detail wrong all the time without knowing it.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to this session!

    kind regards, Jochen

    Hi Dave i would love to see a livestream about concert photography with CaptrueOne.
    From uploading the (tons) of images to the captrueOne catolog, culling editing the images and export them in diferent formats for diferent outputs, like images for social media and images for press print.

    Hi David,

    I'm always fascinated by the styles (dodge/burn/shadows (recover)) you use (you also used them yesterday in the livestream). Is there any possibility to buy these styles you've used or do I really have to create the styles by myself?

    Merry Xmas and a happy near year.

    Regards

    ww

    Hi David:

    I enthusiastically support the request from Rui Bandera, and I would include theatre photography. Its main difficulty for me com from tha dark environment (never shooting less than ISO3200), moving targets and continous changes in color lighting. Silence implies electronic shutter with a lot of banding and noise, sometimes rolling shutter. This complicates all the workflow as you must go back and forth depending if you can get a technically better image despite the shot is not appealing. It's a continous balance, so main issues I'd love to see in action are:

    1. Criteria to cull and discard, both artistic and editing.

    2. How to do fast import and culling of dark series.

    3. Procedure to standarize and fast editing of many series with dramatic color changes.

    4. Procedure to standarize, if possible, quality issues: noise, microblur, banding, etc.

    I guess the more specific the request, the more useful. Apologies if too detailed.
