What exactly is RAW processing and.....

....should I look for a program with great RAW processing or one with great editing capabilities or separate ones for each task?

I have used Photoshop and Lightroom and am trying to get up to speed on Affinity Photo 1.5 for Windows. I have used Photoshop to adjust colours, change exposures, repair blemishes, etc. and am quite comfortable with that program. I've read that Capture One does a great job of processing RAW files. Does that mean that it is great at converting RAW files to other formats for further editing? Would the ideal combination be the "best" RAW conversion software combined with the "best" image editing software?

This newbie is confused!
