Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Which file types are compatible?, part of Capture One Pro 9 Essential Training.
- [Voiceover] What type of files are supported in Capture One Pro? We'll start with raw files and I'm on the supported cameras page right now. Now, the easiest way to get to this is in Google, just search on supported cameras for Capture One Pro and you should get this result in the top ten and I like this page because what it does, is it allows me to select my type of camera and then it just has a list here and it not only lists out the file support, but also if it has tethered support or not.
So, for example, we'll go to let's say my Canon 5D Mark II which up the road we're going to do a tethered shoot with. There it is and it says yes, we support the raw files and yes, we can do tethered shooting there. So this is a very handy page and it's a page that I suggest you check before you think about paying for a full license copy of Capture One Pro right. Make sure that the cameras that you want are supported and they do a pretty good job of keeping up with the new cameras too.
So all in all, I would say that the raw support is excellent. Other files that you can bring in to Capture One Pro. You can bring in jpegs. You can bring in tiffs and you can bring in movie files too, video files. Now you can't do much with them. I brought in some .mov files, but they do play in the application. So I can watch the movies and I can use the application as a storage area for the little movies that I shoot. In my case, I think I'm going to use photos for OS 10 more for storing my movies because I can edit them.
They're shared among my devices, you know, there are all sorts of good things going on. But it's good to know that I can bring in a .mov file into here and watch it and put it in an album and things like that. Now, there a couple of files that don't play well with Capture One Pro. Psd files, Photoshop files, you can't bring them in. I've tested this and I've got confirmation from tech support both flat psd files and layered psd files you can't import them.
So that is something to think about in your quest to find the ultimate photo application for your library. If you have a lot of psd files that you manage, Capture One Pro, as it sits right now as of this recording, is not a good application and then I've also heard from some folks that scanning software, certain files created by certain scanners is not supported also. So, here's what I would do: if you have files that are outside of right here, you know where you can check the raw files outside of jpegs, outside of tiffs, outside the stuff that you know is going to be supported.
I would download the trial version of Capture One Pro and I would test those files that are the outliars and find out for sure, will they work with this application for you and I think that's important information to know before you make the commitment. So anyway, psd files not at the moment. Your camera, you can check here. Certain scanner files, check those out for yourself. Get to the bottom of this before you make a commitment to the application.
In this course, photographer, author, and educator Derrick Story embarks on an in-depth exploration of Capture One Pro. The course structure mirrors the design of the software itself, with chapters that step through each of the tabs in Capture One Pro, from organizing to editing to refining to outputting images. Derrick investigates Capture One Pro's intuitive library structure, its robust editing tools, its tethered shooting mode for going directly from camera to computer, and its photo printing and sharing features, including options for creating web pages and slideshows straight from Capture One Pro. These tutorials are ideal for former Aperture users who are looking for a new photo editing application, as well as current Lightroom subscribers who are interested in Capture One Pro's more powerful import, color grading, and tethering features.
