What problem do you see this solving?
Rendering intent, black point compensation, simulation of paper white should be part of the recipe proofing because they are needed for certain printer/paper icc profiles from my printing service.
My printing service Saal-Digital.com is explicitly discouraging its customers from using C1 for softproofing, because the softproof function is missing black point compensation and simulation of paper white, as is recommended for some of their (very popular) papers.
Only rendering intent can be set but only in the preferences, which is no allowing me to compare different papers by switching if the intent differs.
Here is one paper (Hahnemuehle Photo RAG) where BPC is recommended:
Here is one paper (Fujifilm Crystal Archive DP II Professional Matte) where BPC and paper white (paper "color") simulation is recommended:
When was the last time you were affected by this lack of functionality, or specific tool?
This issue concerns me frequently whenever I print my images, as I usually do not use PS or alike and I want to do my color editing in C1 completely.
Are you using any workarounds or other solutions to achieve your goals in Capture One?
In C1 is to set rendering intent in preferences for every paper I want to softproof (provided it has a different rendering intent), wasting time and my memory of the image proofed with the previous recipe is already gone (no A/B comparison between papers with different intent can be done), and just live without BPC and paper white simulation.
Or I use another application which can do the proof, but then I am already out of of C1 and cannot adjust contrast and colors in C1.
Are you happy to be contacted further about this suggestion or request?
