  6. We're excited to launch the forums alongside our announcement of a new product: CameraBag Cinema! CameraBag Cinema is a special version of CameraBag, currently in public beta for Mac, which is focused on filtering and editing videos. You can use all your existing CameraBag filters and workflows (and also edit photos), but we've also created new tools specifically designed for video. We'll have much more info in the coming days, but for now, a trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjmPNUjBZ0E&feature=youtu.be When it launches, CameraBag Cinema be an entirely new product, with pricing and release date to be revealed at a later time. In the meantime, you can try the latest free beta now RIGHT HERE. CameraBag Cinema Features And Tips - CameraBag’s same non-destructive adjustments and highest-fidelity 96-bit image processing, but now you can process videos in addition to photos - 3D LUT import lets you bring in and edit filters created in other video software - 3D LUT export allows you to create filters in CameraBag Cinema that you can use in most video editors, and directly on many video cameras - Streamlined, understandable video export settings - Easily crop and rotate videos and set custom aspect ratios - Trim controls to edit video clip length - Hit spacebar to quickly preview your rendered video clip - Background rendering queue so you can keep working while your videos (or video batches) are processing New Features Also Coming to Standard (Photos-Only) CameraBag - Zoom to view images and videos at 100% - Right-click to copy and paste curves - Use scrolling to smoothly and accurately adjust curve nodes - Smoother editing all around with live image processing now happening on a background thread - Background render queue for batch processing so you can keep working while processing a batch of photos
  7. Dear Fans of CameraBag, We have big news! Today we’re releasing the next major version of our filter-focused photo editor CameraBag for Mac and PC! This new version is simply called CameraBag Photo (technically it’s version 3.0 of CameraBag), and builds on everything that led to the previous version being chosen by Apple as Mac App of the Year Runner-Up. Some of the top new features in CameraBag Photo include masking (HSV, luminance, and hue-based), 4-Way color wheels, multi-document tabs with side-by-side viewing, a live pixel inspector, animated hover previews, a redesigned dynamic preview chooser, collapsible filter and adjustment sections, a render queue window, color management on Mac, speed improvements, and dozens of new filters. Additionally, the interface has been updated for a fresh new look. Being “filter-focused” means that CameraBag Photo has the advanced tools (including RAW support) you need to make images look just how you want, but in an interface that makes it incredibly easy to reuse the styles you develop as custom filters. We think CameraBag Photo hits the sweet spot in modern photo editing software: it’s much more versatile and powerful than cheesy ‘one-click’ filter apps, but it’s much lighter, quicker, and more intuitive than bloated, so-called ‘pro’ photo software. CameraBag Photo is available now at nevercenter.com or on the Mac App Store. The normal retail price is $49, but it is being offered for a special limited-time launch sale price of $35 (30% off, use promo code LAUNCH). Updates to the new version are also reflected in a free update to CameraBag Cinema, the video-focused edition of CameraBag which retails for $99. Learn more here: nevercenter.com/camerabag/photo Best, Nevercenter psst! we have a special discount for current CameraBag 1.x and 2.x license holders--if you haven't already recieved an email from us, it means we don't have current contact information for you, or the message ended up in your spam folder. Shoot us an email to support@nevercenter.com with your v1 or v2 registration code (so we can look you up), or your receipt from the Mac App Store (if you purchased that way) and we can help out.

  11. Hello everyone! Today we're very happy to announce the release of CameraBag Cinema, our brand new tool for 4K+ video filtering, color correction, and film emulation for Mac! Designed for professionals and indie filmmakers alike, CameraBag Cinema is a powerful stand-alone package which can be used alongside Final Cut Pro, Premier, or any other NLE. It's built around the same core principles and technology of our original photos-only CameraBag, which was chosen by Apple as runner-up for Mac App Of The Year. Watch the trailer at http://nevercenter.com/camerabag-cinema-trailer. To celebrate the launch, you can get CameraBag Cinema on sale for 40% off for a limited time from our website or the Mac App Store (use promo code LAUNCH40 if purchasing from our website). http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/cinema/ https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/camerabag-cinema/id1101039207 CameraBag Cinema's two core tenets are its advanced color adjustment and grading tools, and the fully-customizable presets which are built out of those core tools (including dozens of film stock emulations). Its intuitive interface is designed around easily creating, re-using, and exporting these filters, allowing artists to work quickly and develop their own library of signature styles. Filmmakers and videographers will appreciate the ease of importing and exporting LUTs, working with REDCODE R3D files, support for 4K+ resolution videos, advanced scopes and histograms, and much more. A free 30-day trial download is available from our website at http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/cinema/. Key Features • Advanced curve-based color and light adjustments found nowhere else • Over 200 carefully-crafted and fully-adjustable presets to start • Save any set of adjustments as a preset for later use • Dozens of motion and still film stock emulations • Dozens of useful preset color grading setups • 32-bits-per-channel Analog Engine offers unparalleled image quality • Innovative scopes and histograms • Easily use alongside Final Cut, Premier, or any other NLE • 3D LUT import/export • Supports 4K+ RED R3D files natively • Tile-based adjustments show everything affecting the footage in a single look • Batch processing • Modeled film grain • Award-winning photo processing (including RAW support) CameraBag vs CameraBag Cinema The original photos-only CameraBag desktop software has been highly reviewed by critics and is a hit with users for its innovative and powerful take on photo filtering. CameraBag Cinema is built on the same core: it works on photos and includes everything in the photos-only CameraBag, but also adds powerful new tools for video processing. Both applications will benefit and grow as Nevercenter develops its core image technology.

  14. Hey everyone! Just wanted to quickly post here about the video series we've been working on: a walkthrough of the tools in CameraBag's Adjustments tab (both Cinema and Photo), each in about a minute or less. We just completed the Advanced Color section, with new videos coming daily. You can check them out on our YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/nevercenter) or all conveniently together with descriptions on a page in the CameraBag Support section of the site (http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/photo/support/adjustments). We've also been adding an official discussion thread for each video in the Tutorials and Resources sub-forum here, for easy discussion/notes: http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/forum/index.php?/forum/20-pro-tips-tutorials-and-resources/ Once we've completed the Adjustments tab, what kind of how-to videos/tutorials would you like to see? Love to hear your feedback!
  15. All Mac versions of CameraBag have now been updated to v3.0.21 (this is a compatibility update only, which is why Windows remains at v3.0.2). A free update for all CameraBag 3.x license holders, you should download your update the same way you originally purchased CameraBag: via the Mac App Store or via the Nevercenter website. This update resolves video processing issues with CameraBag Cinema on High Sierra, updates splash screens for Retina displays, and fixes a bug that caused a crash when attempting to open photos from Finder or the Photos app in MacOS High Sierra. With the update to High Sierra, Apple has (finally) re-enabled direct interactions between their Photos app and external photo editors. Simply right-click on a photo in the Photos app, choose "Edit With" from the menu, then select your version of CameraBag!
  16. Learn about CameraBag's infinitely-variable Lightleak adjustment, and some tips on how to layer, adjust, and best make use of it in your editing workflow. What are your thoughts? We'd love to hear your questions, comments, suggestions, and other feedback in the thread below. #41 in the CameraBag Adjustments video series

    Where are the creative filters in the v3 ???

    Hi Yannick! Thanks for the update and sorry about the confusion--which filters are you looking for? We have all of the legacy v3.0 filters available at the bottom of http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/photo/download/#otherdls (look for "CameraBag Photo v3.0 Default Presets"), and we have all of the CameraBag 2 filters available at http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/photo/v_2/ (under "Legacy Styles"). You can add any of these into your current installation of CameraBag v3 following the instructions here: (Although it says CameraBag v2.7 the in-CameraBag process is the same for v3. Just ignore the website appearance.) Is this what you are looking for? If it is something else please let us know--we'd love to help!
  18. Hi! You can definitely do this. If you load a LUT into CameraBag you will see it at the bottom in the tray. Whatever is in the tray can be saved as one of your Presets (use "File > Save Filter to Presets..."). You can do this for any LUTs you'd like saved in your Presets (which will make them show up in Quicklook) -- each one that you save will be listed under "My Presets". Hope this helps! Please let us know if this is unclear. We've had a couple of questions in about it; we might go ahead and make a quick video showing how this is done.

    free trial

    Sorry about any confusion! The download will ask for a registration code when you install it (because the same download can be fully unlocked to register the program on your system), but you can click the button on that same popup saying you would like to continue in trial mode to get the free trial. Does this help?

    Reduce image size?

    Thanks for the kind words! To answer your questions: 1) CameraBag Cinema can do video color grading, cropping, rotating, and so forth. If you think of a video as a series of photos, it can do to that series of photos the same things (and a few more) that CameraBag Photo can do to a single photo. We don't call it a full-scale video editor because there are a bunch of normal video-editor things it doesn't do--trimming video, joining video clips, editing/changing audio, etc. You will need an additional video editing program to do these things. What CameraBag Cinema DOES do, though, it does really well. So it's a great companion app allowing you to do those tasks more easily. 2) The way to reduce an image file size without reducing the pixel size is to remove some of the detailed data with it. Commonly, this is referred to as compression/quality. And CameraBag can definitely help with that! If you go to File > Save As, you get a pop-up save dialogue. The width and height are the pixel dimensions of the image. Leave that alone. What you can adjust is the File Type (jpg/png/tiff) -- which are basically different ways of storing photo data, and they will have different file sizes (generally, jpg will likely be smaller than png, for example) -- and also the "Quality" (if you select JPG). We've worked hard to make the photos saved out of CameraBag still look excellent even when quality is lowered; you may find a large image file size drop if you change quality from, say, 100 to 95, while it visually looks just as good (and of course a perfectly preserved pixel size). Hope this helps!

    Window size/position error on opening

    From a Facebook user, 1/31/17: For some reason my CameraBag Photo software always opens like this. Is there anyway to get it to remember the window size and position? The previous edition did not have this issue. I am using version 3.0.100
