We always try our best to support the latest operating systems as fast as possible, however, there are many aspects that make it difficult to implement support immediately.
NOTE: Capture One will support macOS 11.0 with the upcoming releases of Capture One 21 and Capture One 20.1.4 both scheduled to be released in 2020.
You may find that the application runs on an unsupported operating system, but we strongly discourage our professional users from running the beta version of any OS. If you must have the latest version of macOS installed, test your workflow end-to-end before putting it into a mission-critical production environment.
When Apple releases a major update to its operating system, it can be very tempting to download and install these updates right away.
We strongly advise against this for several reasons:
- The OS itself can contain bugs which can hinder your workflow drastically.
- This also applies to any hardware/cameras you may be using with Capture One. For instance, with macOS 10.15 Catalina tethering was completely broken by the new OS
Our release notes are always available to read prior to purchasing and downloading Capture One. And if Capture One is vital to your workflow, then you should always consult the release notes prior to installing any OS updates.
If you have updated your OS to an unsupported version and you are having issues you will need to contact Apple support with regards to rolling back your operating system.
