Email promoting webinar for latest C1 update arrived today. Mentions "magic brush". Anyone know what this is? We will find out on 22nd but???


Just watched Paul Reiffer's "Pro Tips" video guide to the latest 14.3 updates - new Magic Brush, new Exporter and some (welcome) tweaks to Catalogue management - some good stuff I thought!

Just skimmed the video. Looks actually significant for a free point update. Hustle76's analysis seems to be spot on.


We have actually had several significant updates at point releases over the years.

e,g, in Capture 20.1. Multiple clone and heal points to the same layer were added, as was the before and after feature.

And we have already had style brushes added to 21.

Historically, I think the colour wheel colour balance/grading tool was added at an interim release.

My impression is that C1 has often added new features at point releases, which is great for the user, but less good when it comes to marketing a version number new release.

Of equal importance to me with this point release is that the catalogue now gives counts of files in sub-folders and if you sync a catalogue it will automatically add any new folders into the catalogue that you have added at the system level.

As I ingest files with Photo mechanic, it was a real pain to then manually add every new folder of files into a C1 catalogue, with LR you could just run a catalogue sync and everything would update. C1 now works the same way.

As it so happens I gave up on C1 catalogues a long time ago, but prompted by these long overdue features, I might give it another go.

Yes, I came across Alexonraw. com site where he lists the changes from V21

The new Dehaze tool

Magic Brush

Speed Edit

Style Brushes

Reworked import and export

ProStandard camera profiles

Show images in subfolders

Synchronize new subfolders

Overwrite existing files on export

Apple M1 Native Support

Leica tethering support

HEIF support

The Increased 1600% Zoom

Would have looked significant as a major version release. However, if they continue to deliver like this updating each year becomes easier.
