interesting take. Did you try any other feature besides that?
As I think lots of DEv apps leave that as the detail to nail down in their developing. Even LR did improve that in rev 3 or 4.
People still claim SikyPix to top it. I can understand your need though.
Did you get a chance to look at much else?
It renders previews for the 1ds and 5D pretty good. I didn't look into it particularly.
I'm always looking for a backup to fall on with things up in the air...literally...Adobe cloud. I'm sure it will be safe for LR, but whos to assure you?
No, I didn't look at much else once I saw the 1:1 preview rendering. Didn't see the point but I did play around with the tools a bit which felt like working with a tinker toy compared to working in ACR4.6/LR4 in how the preview responds to the edits which have a noticeable delay, but that's my experience on my system with my camera's Raw.
I also have a version of SilkyPix rebadged as Pentax Digital Camera Utility 4 that came with my camera which I don't use either for pretty much the same reasons except PDCU4 delivers better previews (much like ACR4.6) but with a clunky interface that tries to mimic LR's Library/Develop module setup. The preview response edits reflect a slightly oddball sense of color rendering that seem to be sourced from Pentax's secret sauce rendering of my K100D's incamera jpegs. I'm just too used to Adobe's color engine driven preview edits.
