Capture One’s color wheels used in the Color Balance tool can be displayed with the chroma hue reference phase rotated 90-degrees to imitate a Vectorscope layout, as found on high-end video-editing software. Experience with this layout, with red near to the top, should benefit anyone working with video-editing software. Note that the lightness and saturation adjustment sliders are exchanged in position.
- Go to Capture One -> Preferences (Mac) or Edit -> Preferences (Windows). The Preferences dialog box opens.
- Click on the Color tool tab.
- Go to Color Wheels Layout section and select the layout out from the two options. Red to the right is the default. Red close to the top imitates a typical Vectorscope layout. The selection is made without the need to restart Capture One.
- To return to the default selection, repeat the actions from Step 1.
