picture control sharpening
Jason Odell says to go in Picture control sharpening in Capture NX2 and disable it so that there is no in camera sharpening.I can not figure out how to do this.Any help would be appreciated.Also,has his two step sharpening technique of doing high pass filter first and then USM worked well for people.I have just gotten a D800 and I am shooting RAW,loss less compression,set on standard picture control.Thanks for any help.

I'm not sure where you got hung up. I suspect it's step #1 below, but I'll give you all the steps anyway.
Picture control settings are in the Develop section. To set the picture control sharpening:
- From the picture control dropdown list select a specific picture control. Leaving it at "Unchanged" will not let you change the sharpening.
- Click the down arrow at the left of "Advanced".
- Move the Sharpening slider to 0 or type 0 in the value box

Gary's instructions are spot-on. What you really want to do is create a settings file that does this so that you don't have to dive into those Picture Control settings. You can also combine his steps with the sharpening you plan to do and then tweak the parameters as necessary.
