I have read a few posts regarding this topic, and wanted to know specifcally about the Focus features/changes....
I use 3.7 now, and I like it very much.
What are the top 3 or so highlights that I will see improvements on that will make worth while?
One of the most important functions for me is the Focus area during tethcapturing. On the Mac it takes a bit of time for the window (I make it larger) to become focus. On the PC, viewing in the large setting (wish it would detach like the MAC version), I often have to move or select something for it to initiate focusing. This I would hope to be faster and more feature rich.
I know I can download and try it, but I wanted to hear from people who now have it in flow.
I have a group mulitple use license now for DB, and wondering if going 4x Pro would be an upgrade for 1 of those or would I have to purchase Pro stand alone?
Anyone have any experience in this before I submit a email to Phase support (They are really great in support , I have had accurate but short answers,and it is an email
1) Customizability (change your workspace to suit your specific needs)
2) HDR and vibrance control
3) Support for newer cameras
4) 100% zoom possible WITHIN main window
5) Great support for two windows
6) Faster Processing (including rough JPG creation at about 1-2 images per second)
7) Additional focus-during-tethering options (Set Compare Variant or Disable Auto Select New methods)
Dozens of other smaller things.
This is as much a different program as an upgrade to 3.X so while there is a LOT of good there are also a few minor annoyances as well as a few major annoyances when comparing to Capture One 3.
Stability/Speed is very good on 4.8.1, so if you've evaluated 4.X earlier (especially if you haven't looked since the 4.5.X builds) then this is well worth another look. We have a class which is very frank about the advantages and disadvantages of C1 4.X vs. C1 3.X along with what you need to know when switching in our series of Online Capture One Screen Sharing Classes
