Applying a Color Selection Mask to Multiple Images in Capture One

    Is the mask shifting or is the color in the other images at a different position?

    I assume the latter (unless capturing a static scene from a tripod), then read on:

    Your step two creates a mask which consists of pixels with opacity and position. These mask pixels are static, totally disconnected from the color range you specified in step one.

    Hence, copying the mask (layer) will just do that, copy the mask pixels to the same pixel location.

    To cirvumvent the problem, copy the Advanced Color Editor (ACE) settings defined in step one from the background layer instead of copying the created layer. Then visit each image, re-execute step two.

    Before that you could check in the ACE with "View selected color range" (or by increasing the luminosity slider to its extreme) in each image whether or not you need to fine-tune your color range, as every image might record colors slightly different.

    Hello, I followed BeO's advice and tried it out. First, I used the Advanced Color Editor (ACE) to select the color, then I selected the images where I wanted to apply the mask and pressed "Edit Selected." After that, I used "Create Masked Layer from Selection." Capture One automatically created masks for the specified color parts on multiple images, just as I had hoped. I didn't know this was possible, and I am grateful for the information. Thank you very much!

    Great news, I didn't know this either :-)
