The Live View window includes an Overlay tool like that found in the main Capture One application. It works in exactly the same way, allowing you to superimpose a previously made transparency file of a layout of a magazine front cover or on to the live view image, for instance. This helps you with your composition in real time and if the camera is ready, you can capture the image directly from within Capture One.
- Set up the camera for tethered photography.
- Start a tethered Session or Catalog. Choose File -> New Session... or File -> New Catalog....
- Start Live View.
- From the Overlay tool, insert a file with a transparent background layer by dragging and dropping it into the Overlay window or by navigating to it after pressing the File action button (... icon) to locate and select it.
- Adjust the subject according to the layout of the chosen file. Alternatively, adjust the position of the file to your subject using the sliders or select the Move Overlay (hand icon) and adjust the overlay in the Viewer.
