Don't forget the possibility to (ab)use the LCC tool in the Pro version for tonemapping purposes, as outlined here
. It works better IMHO, than a straight edged gradient (which requires a straight horizon).
Indeed. But for a variety of reasons (batching, speed, ease-of-initial-learning) it would still be great to have a quick and easy to use Grad ND Filter tool.
Along with a better UI / workflow for the tonemapping-via-LCC method described in the article. Quality wise it's really very good - arguably the best tonemapping workflow available (the file remains in raw - all tools in C1 are still available, settings can be tweaked at any time). But the interface was designed for LCC (a very useful but very unrelated function) and it shows.
Capture One 6 Pro was the first time that either tool was available within C1, so it's natural that they will would evolve in future versions; indeed I suspect strongly we'll see both enhancements come to Capture One - hopefully sooner than later!
