"Capture One Pro Color Editor Problem"



I'm using C1 Pro in trial mode. When I click on the down-arrow for the Color Editor, nothing opens - in fact, if I have one or more of the other adjustments open, the entire list collapses.

I gather from looking at the user guide that this is not the expected behavior. Once I select the Color tool, I should then be able to expand the Color Editor and have a choice between a Basic and an Advanced tab. But, as I said, the arrow for the Color Editor does not expand the tool at all, so there's no chance to go further.

So is the Color Editor disabled in trial mode? Or do I have a faulty install? So far as I have used the other features of C1 Pro, they have worked - although I haven't tried everything by far.

If the CE is disabled in trial mode, that would keep me from considering purchasing C1. Getting color right from my NEF images is the one of the highest priorities for me in choosing a RAW converter/editor. If I can't evaluate that, then nothing else would influence me to buy the product.

The version is 6.3.5.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/fixes.

I was in a similar situation when I did my evaluation with their trial version. I was mainly interested in the lens correction methods, and those weren't in the trial version.

I mentioned this here in the past, and someone said that one could get the Pro version for a trial; but I'm really not sure.

Anyway, I got frustrated and paid for the full version. I assumed that if I didn't like the full features, I could push it back at Phase One. I didn't have to; I found that this s/w is far better than anything else around. About the only thing I miss is being able to work in LAB, but I can always go into Photoshop for that.

I have discovered that Capture One gives me better color rendition than using Lightroom with the X-Rite ColorChecker. I have gone to deep lengths to figure this out; e.g., measuring the my ColorChecker Passport with a spectrophotometer, comparing my results to the expected published values, and then doing RAW conversions in LR with calibrated profiles and in Capture One with just corrected white balance.

My experience has been that Capture One comes out closest without the extra work of doing color calibrations with the X-Rite system. I should mention that I've been shooting with a D700 and I can't make claims about other bodies/sensors.

And I've got no interest in Phase One in saying this, just for the record.
