  • Speaking of GPU. On1 is completely dependent on GPU. Weak GPU = weak performance of adjustments. For example, On1 on my GTX 1080 even Canon 5Ds 50MP images have instantaneous adjustments.
  • Why...application bugs. Possibly a runaway GPU thread. We are talking about On1 here. While I love the software and the ease in how I can get results I like, they have been pretty darn twitchy ...
  • The perfect brushing performance problems at 100% view appear to have been corrected/fixed.
  • It's likely not CPU load that is heating things up, but rather GPU load. On1 is very GPU centric (via OpenGL fragment shaders).
  • We must always remember that 2/3s of the RGB pixel data we look at in our converted RAW images is "fake". Only one RGB component per pixel comes from the sensor with normal/typical bayer sensor ...
  • Oh hell yes. I got a couple of the test builds before 2018.5 was finally released and 2018.5 is no better than those. At 100% view the perfect brush is unusable, IMO, with even just one item in ...
  • I am pretty sure DNG supports embeded XMP metadata but I cannot say for sure. Adobe originally defined by file specs. This only affects the side XMP file. The .on1 sidecar file is always going to ...
  • The XMP files (extensible metadata) contain multi-application compatible metadata. Mosts apps can read/write this data. Stuff like copyright, ratings, keywords and such. The .on1 file is your side ...
  • I'm not on a Mac. Windows 10 here. 4Ghz i7 4770k, GTX 1080. On1 Raw 2018.1 and 2018.1.1 have a performance regression with the use of the perfect brush compared to 2018.0. It affects screen updates ...
  • Nothing in the UI that I am aware of. The real common ratios are all there. If you want to get technical, you can do it. In the On1 "programdata" folder, 'Common 2018\CropTool\FactoryPresets\Ratio' ...
  • Hmm, Page 106 describes the sharpening effect in the Effects module. Searching for sharpening finds it and the table of content entry (Page 8). Of course, everything in the Effects module can have ...
  • On1 does not have a feature to copy a pixel region/selection to paste elsewhere in itself or some other application. The copy/paste command in browse copy/paste the select file(s) from one folder ...
  • You probably created a layered file. Layered documents will create pixel file saves in PSD files verses just storing edits (in XMP or database). Or maybe you choose Save As and selected a PSD ...
  • Replied in link to raw
    Here is something I tried in On1. Minor basic/develop edits. Dynamic contrast and vibrance masked to bird. Surface blur masked to background. The mask started with a luminosity mask. The mask was ...
  • I don't use Lightroom but I believe I can answer some questions you posed about On1. On1 will read/write Adobe compatible metadata in a sidecar XMP file if it exists. This amounts to raw files only ...
  • I have played around with it a little since I use Studio standalone. My Topaz use these days is only Impression, Glow/Radiance and Simplify. My big impression is that the basic tonal controls are a ...
  • I think Topaz knows that users probably own multiple of their plug-ins and use multiple plug-ins in an image edit. Only Photoshop has the smart filter mechanism for non destructive plug-in edits. ...
  • You are creating issues for yourself in the current world. Software normally activates itself via the net. It's one thing to run a machine without a net connection but another to not have any ...
  • Studio is still a plug-in if that is how you want to use it. Standalone is just an additional mode. Studio is the plug-in of the future. As a plug-in you execute studio and all of the plug-ins are ...
  • Would PTlens be any better? It's still a completely user submitted photo based just like Lensfun. Lensfun started with the PTLens database and added to the list from there. Really, On1 just needs ...
