c1 Pro 20 new black setting
« on: January 22, 2020, 03:30:43 pm »

Is plain great!

The degree of fine tuning it affords ton the deep blacks is clearly by far my favorite feature in C1 Pro 20.

Just loving it. Well done Phaseone!

Cheers,
Bernard

The shadow tool is pretty heavy handed in how it raises the level of the dark tones, which can result in a perception of a lack of contrast in the images.

On the other hand, the new black tool is much more subtle and can help provide a feel for non blocked shadows while preserving a nice feel of a contrasty image.

Cheers,
Bernard

OK, I understand what you meant.
Yes, the behaviour of the Black and Shadow sliders in C1 is quite différent from what it is in Lightroom.

In LR the Black and White sliders are used to set the Black and White point.  In C1 you use the Levels tool, as in most image editors. LR does not have Levels capability, hence the need for dedicated sliders

You can automate the Levels tool in C1 which speeds things up as for normal images you normally want to set the Black and White points early on in the edit process.

Yes, an important distinction. In C1 the Levels tool sets the Blackpoint and Whitepoint.

The new 'Black' and 'White' sliders in C1's HDR tool affect the contrast in the darkest and lightest range of tones only.
