I was hoping my initial question could be answered :-)...anyone?
As for Tim's thoughts and concerns....Which are welcome.
I think Doug covered it rather well. and as much as I agree with you 100% Tim.
C1 is not interested in being a mainstream raw developer. If you use it once a week, you are likely to forget the workflow, mixed in with the way the OS works you interact with regularly, (as other apps follow some sort of OS standard way of doing things), you are likely to struggle with C1. If you use it along another Raw developer or other file manager, again, you are likely going to get mixed up, or forget, perhaps shift major brain gears to mesh well. You can remain as frustrated as I am. C1's main focus is as Doug says. They rely more so on full time Digital techs that assist photographers. The training to be a certified digital tech, and keeping C1 exclusive is something C1 sees as an advantageous asset. I think it is short sited, yet it is niche, and it hasn't bothered them to shift away from such a business model... yet.
At one time, I was using it more regularly, and I was getting to know C1 more. But then LR3 had launched. Since I was already using C1 with some struggle. I went to LR for most of my work. LR was so easy to work with off the bat (due to some OS standards, Photoshop transition) I was using C1 less, which made it harder to work with. (LR also uses GUI visual logic to help guide you). C1 is superior in processing certain subjects. At least the way I work in LR doesn't get me the detailed results as I get in C1. Maybe a LR training would get me equal results? There are a good amount of raw processors these days. I really like how DXO handles files, but oddly enough, NO PhaseOne back support! None..No med format backs. Also, I'm not sure their level of quality compared to C1.
Anyway. If you plan to use C1 more so, I couldn't think of a better person to take C1 classes with. I have "known" Doug for maybe 8 years, and he has the methodology, the mindset approach to teach someone from all levels. And he too understands the frustrations people have. So, he knows how to approach it very well.
Even with training, what it comes down to is that you HAVE to use the software daily. In depth and/or "in and out" with it.
I simply don't use it daily. Funny enough still hit some bumps with fundamentals of the software. I know the developing stuff much better.
Back to the original question....(I know it maybe simple, but I want to make sure)....
Anyone have suggestions or issues when moving(IIQ image files)? What files I need to move and what to delete(what I can delete)? (proxy, settings, output, selects, trash, etc).
