    As a former translator for the French versions of iView I was appalled (not just me) by the work of Microsoft.
    What are your intentions in this regard?


    My only reference is Expression Media so i can not make the comparison with iView Media.
    In general i was satisfied. I bought the product, that says enough 😊
    With MP1 a lot of things got worse and almost nothing got better so i stick with EM2 for the time beeing.

    In terms of the GUI, I can understand your concern but in the grand scheme of things this is quite minor. We can change this, or show you how to edit this, down the road if need be.
    For the time being, as this is the first step in the right direction for this software in several years, it would be extremely helpful if we could get some performance and feature feedback. The more constructive information we can get in regards to functionality the faster we can improve it. From there, we'll tackle the small stuff like software themes.

    Could you please give the information on how to edit the GUI so that we do not have a black background at the least on the main windows under images.

    Thanks

    For me that's also the biggest problem of the new MediaPro. Now it's impossible to quickly compare two or more Raw images when editing. It's the problem that stops me to buy it. (Shooting Canon 1D MkIV and 1Ds MkII CR2 files, 10 GB of RAM, MacPro with Snow Leopard)

    >>Display : Browsing images in View panel is very disturbing because images are blurred for one or two seconds before they become clear. So when browsing you cannot see details unless you spend a lot of seconds for each image. It is unbearable. With EM2 (and IVMP), images were immediatly sharp.<<

    It's also like this switching images going through the Light Table. I've tried changing rendering methods, engines, it's still like...having shutter lag on a camera. When you're used to the speed of EM/IVMP, it is simply maddening. I can only hope the upcoming release resolves this.

    This is exactly why my workflow starts in Capture One. I shoot a Canon 60D, so my files are a bit smaller than yours, and my WIn 7 pc is quite fast - but I can't use MP for initial editing. If I used the Light table for initial comparisons, I'd pull my hair out.

    I now just use the light table to compare shots after initial post processing (when I have to).

    EDIT -- actually, when I shoot a lot of shots (>250) in a high ISO (3200 - 6400) at an event like my grandson's indoor basketball game, and I know I will toss 2/3 of them before any processing, I use Lightroom for the initial sort; and often the final product as its noise suppression is so superior to CO.

    Read several of the pages then jumped back here to express my disappointment on one specific functionality I have been waiting for since Phase One acquired Media Pro. Because of the method I store my images, I have folders with a large number of images. I have learned (the hard way) that I cannot select these folders with Capture One as it will either bog down the CO or cause it to crash. Consequently, I have learned to manage my files with Lightroom and to copy a specific file I want to work with to a separate folder designated as a CO work area. What I have been hoping fore is that Phase One will at some point allow Media Pro to be the database manager for CO and when I select a file to edit, CO will open and edit that file without it having to load all the images in that folder as well.....When this happens, I con rely on CO more and LR less. But we are not there yet.

    It can do that; or at least I do.
    Select an image in MP, right click and open with CO.
    Then when the question pops up "Place images in Albums ..." , answer "yes".

    It will appear in a new session album by itself.

    The new version 1.2 has corrected the light table issues - it seems to move quickly now, and makes it very usable.

    The Light Table seems Ok now, but I do not use it very frequently. I make the editing going fast through a series of images in the Media Tab, jumping from one image to the next or before with the arrow keys or the mouse wheel. In iView and in Expression Media the images change fast and are visible instantanely. With MediaPro the image takes some seconds to be visible. First its pixeled, and after some seconds is fine. Thats makes impossible to compare the framing, colors, position of people, etc from several frames.

    That's not good - my system behaves very differently. I have my preferred engine set to Phase One in the preferences. Once the program has rendered them all, it zips quickly through the files. The image snaps into place with no pixelation.
