Feature walkthrough

Keystone Tool redesign

The Keystone Tool has been redesigned with a new user interface. Additionally, Auto Keystone has been added for all camera models, allowing a swift and precise perspective correction of most images.

Tool design

The Keystone Guides have been redesigned to easily place them with greater precision. Additionally, the precision of the guides can be fine-tuned using the keyboard arrows when a guide is selected.

The content of the Keystone Tool has been split into two tabs, ‘Guides’ and ‘Sliders’. Guides offer fully automatic and guided keystone options, while Sliders offer manual adjustments.

The new adjustment ‘Skew’ has been introduced to accommodate a wider range of perspective corrections.

Auto Keystone

Let Capture One detect and correct the perspective automatically. By pressing the ‘Auto’ button in the Keystone Tool, lines in the image(s) are automatically detected, evaluated, and used for the correction. The result is a swift automatic correction with high precision.

By default, Auto Keystone will correct Vertical Keystone. This can be changed by simply selecting one of the other two guide modes to activate the cursor tool. The icon within the ‘Auto’ button will change accordingly and pressing it will instantly apply the desired correction. Auto Keystone works on batches of images.

Auto Keystone can also be triggered from the regular Auto Adjust functionality in the main toolbar. To do this, tick Keystone in the drop-down menu of Auto Adjust. Note that only Vertical Keystone is available from Auto Adjust.

If Capture One is unable to detect suitable lines in the image, pressing ‘Auto’ will have no effect.

General user experience improvements and tweaks

Apple Silicon (M1) performance improvements

The following areas have been improved:

Preview generation is up to 100% faster.

Luma Mask rendering is up to 300% faster. This makes it faster to render the initial Luma Mask and significantly faster to tweak the luminosity range afterward.

Feather and Refine Mask are up to 1.000% faster.

Fujifilm X-Trans raw loading is up to 100% faster, making the preview generation and rendering when zooming feels significantly faster on images from Fujifilm APS-C cameras.

Improved Auto Rotate

The algorithm behind Auto Rotate has been improved, providing more accurate results on images where clear lines are visible. This makes it more valuable with, for example, landscape images with clear horizons.

Crop Aspect Ratio behavior

Changing the Aspect Ratio from the Crop Tool will now immediately apply this ratio to the selected image. This makes it easier and more intuitive to work with different aspect ratios, as you don’t have to make a change to the crop for the new ratio to apply.

Easier access to drop-down menus

Drop-down menus that were previously only accessible by long-pressing their icons are now easier to open. Most icons have gotten a downwards arrow that will open the menu, and all menus can be opened by right-clicking their icons.

New default sorting option

Collections will now sort by Date instead of Name by default. This default can be changed in General Preferences, where both the sorting criteria and direction can be customized. This only affects new collections.

Capture One Live add-on

Live Sessions can be now configured to last for 1, 3, 5, 7, or 14 days. You can choose between the different options upon starting a new Live Session that suits both your and your collaborator’s needs.

License changes

Capture One Fujifilm/Sony/Nikon converted to Pro

Subscription users of Capture One Fujifilm/Sony/Nikon will automatically have their license upgraded to Capture One Pro at no additional cost. Perpetual owners will need to upgrade via the upgrade store.
