Live View is created to work in a studio environment and is fully-integrated into Capture One Pro. However, the live view image can be overexposed beyond the parameters of the adjustment sliders if Live View is used outdoors or if a camera is pointing directly towards an overly bright light-source.
- Open Capture One Pro and start a tethered Session or Catalog (e.g., choose File ->New Session.. ).
- Connect a compatible camera via FireWire or USB. Capture One will automatically recognize the camera or digital back.
- Activate live view by pressing the movie camera icon in the Camera tool or choose Window -> Live View. The Live View window will open.
- From the Live View tool tab (movie camera icon), go to the Live View Controls tool and adjust the orientation of the live view image to match the orientation of the camera in the Orientation tool.
- Adjust Lightness and Quality to set brightness and sharpness of the live view image. To further assist with image assessment, click on the RGB icon in the main Toolbar to switch between a color or a monochrome live view image.
- To adjust the camera settings, select the Capture tool tab (camera icon) located in the top-left corner beneath the main toolbar of the Live View window.
- From the Camera Settings or Camera tools, set the aperture and shutter speed. Set the shutter to BULB or TIME function with a supported medium format camera or technical camera and Phase One digital back. The live view image will be displayed as soon as the shutter is opened.
- Set white balance using the White Balance picker.
- In the Overlay tool, add a suitable file to capture a comparison image, for example, or to help composition in accordance with a specific layout.
- Adjust the composition and set the focus distance (adjust using the camera’s AF system in conjunction with the Camera Focus control buttons or manually with the Focus Meter whether supported).
- Press the capture button located in the Camera tool. With certain medium format cameras and digital backs, the Live View window must be closed before setting the shutter speed to correctly expose an image.
