onOne plugin
« on: April 28, 2011, 05:54:08 PM »

I'd like some feedback on the utility of the new (beta) onOne plugin that mimics the layers masking in Photoshop. The one drawback I see is that it converts the file from parametric to PSD. The promotional videos make it quite attractive but there is no pricing on the individual plugin.

There are many things that Aperture will allow you to do without a plug-in such as Perfect Layers. I wrote up some of my thoughts here for those thinking of buying it when it comes out the summer.

Bob -- nice write-up and pov.  I haven't examined Perfect Layers, but I can certainly vouch for everything you report (not that my added voice is needed).  I'm not sure how and to what degree of subtlety masks are created in PL, but in Aperture, using the strength slider of the brush (not the overall Brick slider) and the feather tool one can create quite usefully ramped transitions across any mask edge and within the mask itself.  The various "mask" overlays make the mask easy to see and modify.  The additional ability to separately brush in darks, lights, and mid-tones gives the user a degree of control that in my experience is adequate to any task.

I assume you know all this.  I wanted to add it for any who might come this way looking for a comparison of PL and Aperture.  I think the extensive control of Brush masks and the interaction of Bricks is one of the least appreciated of Apertures many strengths.

For a reality check on what this product can and cannot do (its questionable usefulness, the marketing hype surrounding it), see: http://regex.info/blog/2011-04-23/1753

More importantly, check out Jeffrey’s plug-in answer to this OnOne product. Its pretty slick and far more useful IMHO. Its at: http://regex.info/blog/lightroom-goodies/layers

That's not much use to an Aperture user, though.
