What problem do you see this solving?
Coming from Lightroom, I often used to blur regions of a photo.
• Mostly just on the vignette/peripheral zone to direct the viewer to the sharp center of the scene
• sometimes I need to quickly "unsharpen" and darken regions where the camera gear is still recognizable.
• when I realize that the background cloth is too wrinkled or stained
In Lightroom I can simply set the "sharpness" to a negative value (-100) regardless if I use a brush or the gradient mask. In CaptureOne I can only enter positive values...
I understand that CaptureOne should not be the tool to alter photos unrealistically but as a photographer I would consider a simple blurring of regions to be still appropriate and true to reality.
When was the last time you were affected by this lack of functionality, or specific tool?
Are you using any workarounds or other solutions to achieve your goals in Capture One?
I would have to roundtrip hundreds of photos through Affinity Photo just because there were stains on the floor that are to big to clone/repair...
Are you happy to be contacted further about this suggestion or request?
