I use Capture One Pr 8 (no advantage to 9; same processing engine according to my expert friends), but there is one aspect of C1Pro that baffles me, coming from Adobe Camera Raw and Bridge, originally, then Aperture, from the first version to a couple of months ago.
I often come home with hundreds of images that need sorting into their own folders, and I would prefer to do this all in C1. How is this done?
I can create folders easily enough in C1 but, unlike all the other DAMs I know, the folders are not visible in the Viewer window; only images are. New folders do not appear in the Library window (as far as I can see). Does C1 allow the user to move images, or do images have to be moved first, then C1 pointed at these new folders?
Ideally I want to use C1 for everything, but I cannot see how to do this most fundamental part.
I could use the Finder to do make new folders and move images to them, but because I shoot Raw, even on a fast machine like mine, the identification and selection of the (say) ten different sets of images from a five week trip is just not smooth and fast (compared to Aperture where you can simply select and drop 50 images into a new project directly from the main browser). If there is a way of doing this in C1, my only reservation (and it’s a significant one) about making this my only Raw processor will disappear.
Anyway, that’s the problem—can anyone assist? TIA!
