What problem do you see this solving?
I have a lightroom catalog containing around 42000 images, it's my whole life and it contains all the edits I've ever done to my photos. I'm glad the lightroom catalog import function has been added but it still imports only very few settings (as far as i've noticed it just imports exposure compensation, contrast, white balance and crop). As far as HDR settings, structure, haze removal and perspective correction go they're not really considered.
This is probably the biggest blocker from moving to Capture One.
I've found a software which is apparently doing exactly this kind of catalog conversion, it's called Avalanche for Capture One and trying it it seems to give a much more thorough job at importing lightroom settings. I'd gladly use it, but it's quite expensive and I'm not very trustful of an unknown software. As far as the trial goes it seems to import many more settings (if forgoes perhaps the perspective adjustment, though, at least that's what I think from the only 100 images the trial version imports in the capture one catalog file it creates).
It would be great to have a tool like that to import my lightroom catalog, and I wish it was integrated inside Capture one itself.
Also it would be great to be able to import lightroom presets and convert them into capture one ones. Apparently Avalanche does that too, but I've found yet another software called Preset Converter from Picture Instruments.
When was the last time you were affected by this lack of functionality, or specific tool?
Every time I try to move to Capture One
Are you using any workarounds or other solutions to achieve your goals in Capture One?
No, the only workaround I've found is using some unknown expensive software from another company to import the pics in a new capture one catalog.
Are you happy to be contacted further about this suggestion or request?
Yes, I'd be glad.
