Modify the functionality or handling of different types of files.
The image preview size (px) value can be adjusted to set the size of the proxy file. The higher the Preview Image Size is, the higher the quality of the Quickproof output recipe and preview image that Capture One generates. Preview sizes of 3840 px and 5120 px have been added to improve the interactive performance of the preview image when applying adjustments on UHD/4K and 5K screens. The 3840 px setting is also recommended for DCI 4K (4096 x 2160 px) displays. A large cache setting will, however, increase the amount of time it takes to load previews and thumbnails in the application.
EIP Packing (Sessions only)
Checkmark one of the options if an .EIP workflow is preferred. EIP packing can be made automatically on import or capture (Phase One digital backs only).
Many users shoot both RAW and JPEG simultaneously. To avoid working on JPEGs and TIFFs accidentally, remove the editing option to ensure these files are viewable but not editable. The effect of selection is immediate, Capture One does not need to be relaunched. When editing is disabled, JPEG, TIFF, and PNG files can still be imported with their corresponding variants rendered and displayed in the browser and viewer. When the variants are selected, the editing tools are grayed out.
Make new files writable by everyone. When selected, new files (created during import, capture or EIP conversion) will have write permissions for everyone, not just the file owner.
Default Processing Engine. Select the default processing engine for Capture One from the fly-out menu. The processing version selected will only be used by new files (created during import, capture or EIP conversion), existing files rendered with later versions will remain unaffected. You can check the processing version used to render selected variants in the Base Characteristics tool located under the Color Tool Tab.
When working in different, third-party applications, metadata will be stored in different ways. Choose your preferred option. If left to the default settings, the metadata entered in Capture One will be preferred to third-party metadata.
