I hate the new export design. I hate that it opens in a new window. CaptureOne doesnt listen to the working pros. They didnt listen to anyone about the layer screw up. I feel like they have no idea what a working pro does. Its about speed and eliminating all the extra steps. They are making it worse.!
Breaking an existing workflow and forcing an entirely new one on working professional users is poor software design and poor business. I've used C1 Pro since 2008 and always appreciated the flexibility of being able to simultaneously output multiple formats for different purposes. Also used batch process info to check that I started the process properly, monitor when it is finished, and have a way to cancel if I make a mistake.
As a commercial photographer, digital tech and a Phase One Certified Professional I am saddened by the direction the company seems to be heading. Capture One does indeed seem to be moving away from its professional user base and this latest update has the potential to directly, negatively affect my bottom line.
As a photographer and POCP where I'm often on site solo or with a small team, anything I can do to streamline my workflow is welcome. The current release makes things far more difficult as they've removed several folder options that, while somewhat confusing for non-pro users, are absolutely essential to my work. While I'd love to see the Process/Output tabs come back, at least don't remove useful functionality that I and others depend on.
