    Hi!

    This is just great! But it leads to some question:

    - where are the pictures located once C1 is not running anymore ?

    - Why only one day ? I would pay for more.

    - How to keep the track of all "live" share ?

    - Are the cloud server in the EU? Mostly, we are not using US or Asian server. EU in addition to Scandinavian countries and Switzerland are welcome.

     

    Regards

    Hi Nicolas, 

    Thank you for your feedback.

    Here are answers to your questions:

    1. Until you stop the session or the expiry time has been reached, the photos are securely stored in our online service.

    2. What is the average desired session duration?

    3. What do you mean by tracking live share? How would you like to keep track of the live shares? Currently, we support only one concurrent live session.

    4. Yes, our European customers use a European server.

    This is great. Currently not working on smart albums though.. should we expect it in the future? i mean becomes easy to share those across rather than manually creating an album to add photos

    Hi Maryna !

    2. What is the average desired session duration?

    Most of my customers need a week to finish the seletion. But some many need one mouth.. I would be nice to have let's say a limite number of pictures or share, but unlimited in time.

    -> No problem to pay a fee per year for such a service.

    3. What do you mean by tracking live share? How would you like to keep track of the live shares? Currently, we support only one concurrent live session.

    I mean having a list of all my current shares. Most of the time, I have 1 to 10 customers seletion in the same time.

    4. Yes, our European customers use a European server.

    This is great!

    I really like this idea! Even if the customer is at the same place he or she might be busy concurrently with other things and can not be present at the same spot. For that reason, it would be great with some subtle notice for the customer that now comes a new series of photos but not for every photo. I mean one angle needs for example 10 shots when that is done the photographer sends a notice/reminder to check the series of 10 shots so the customer knows when that series of photos are done. More effective for the customer that doesn't have to check continuously or miss to respond to the photographer before changing the set.

    Will the settings of Capture One for each photograph reflect in the customer's web browser?

    I mostly photograph on location and how can that be incorporated to transfer low res photos for example over the mobile?

    Hi Martin, 

    Thank you for your feedback.

    2K is the default resolution for your pictures in the shared session. Apart from resolution, Capture One Live respects the export settings of the currently selected recipe of the Export tab.

    What is the difference between Capture One Live and Capture Pilot? Is Live replacing Pilot? 

    Currently I use this software at work where we have issues utilizing the complete functionality of Capture Pilot because of firewalls within the company's digital infrastructure. About the only way we can use it is to create an ad-hoc network and connect an iPad for clients at the shoot. So mainly what I'm wondering is, with Capture One Live, am I going to have the same issues that I'm currently having with Pilot where I can't utilize the web sharing because of my company's firewall?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your comment.

    The main idea is that COL can be an alternative to Capture Pilot for sharing a photoshoot and getting ratings and color tags over the internet. It does not do all the things the Capture Pilot does, for example, it does not have camera controls.

    So for browsing, rating and tagging yes, Capture One Live can be an alternative to Capture Pilot and allow for sharing over the internet and with any device and it's not limited to the local network and iPads with the app installed. 

    ​But Capture One Live does not offer the exact same functionality as Capture Pilot.

    I appreciate the feedback, I'm still a little lost on the subject. C1 Pilot has a publish to web feature in which one can send a link to someone else who can then view the capture session in real time as well as rate and color tag images. So it sounds like Pilot does everything that Live does plus it can also publish to mobile devices and has camera control functionality.

    So what I'm understanding is that Live is really just an additional session sharing tool but with less features than Pilot, is that right?

    Hi Mike, 

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Could you tell us more about your workflow and how you currently use Capture Pilot?

    Is there a need for remote collaboration?

    Would you like to share a session with any device: mobile/pc/any type of tablet instead of an iPad?

    I think you're missing my question. Is there any benefit to C1 Live over Pilot? 

    And like I asked in my first comment, is Live replacing Pilot?

    I also mentioned in that first comment that one big issue we have with Pilot currently is not being able to utilize the web function because of my company's firewall. I wanted to know if there was anything within Live's infrastructure that's different from Pilot that might alleviate this issue? I imagine there's not, but just curious.

    If you'd like to discuss my workflow and software needs I'd be happy to chat about that but I would prefer to do it over a different platform, if possible (email, phone call, etc.). 

    Thank you! :)

    Capture One live could be great but definitely needs some improvement.

    For me the biggest problem is the client cannot change folders. We need a way to share more than one folder and a smart folder. 

    Thanks,

    F

    Hi Fletcher, 

    Thank you for your feedback. 

    I'll forward your suggestion to add the option to share more than one album, as well as a smart album to our Product Management team.

    Hopefully, your feedback contributes towards a future version of Capture One.
