How can you get this to work? You can't edit anything in C1 if it's not in the catalog.
Combining different editors and catalogs would be the best solutions, as you can use the great C1 editing and drops its useless and stone around your neck stone age catalog.
Or are you using C1 version 6, which wasn't hampered by this insanely outdated catalog.
C1 pro gives you the option of using sessions without the catalog.
Anyway, I have run into another issue. Lets say I process an image and open it in Photoshop. Once the image is edited in photoshop and saved, it doesn't automatically populate the original catalog.
One would think that the catalog folder would be a "watched" folder. I may be doing something wrong, but really I'm just fed up trying to make this crap work. Plus my final stage is cataloging and or printing and C1 just doesn't cut it in either department.
So now I'm just gonna go back to my old workflow.
1. Ingest, tag and sort with Photo Mechanic
2. Import into Lightroom as a catalog
3. If Lightroom doesn't give me the look I want, export pics to whichever raw convertor I might want to use: PS, NX2, C1
4. Edit pics
5. Import finished tiff file to Lightroom to be cataloged and or printed.
