    Key frames to vary settings

    Thanks Philip! What we're trying to do right now is make plugin versions of CBC for Final Cut and Premiere which can hopefully take advantage of the keyframing stuff within each of those. We're working to try to get it set up so that the plugin will have a button that will open CameraBag in plugin mode (as a separate app, not inside the FCP/Premiere window) with your current frame loaded, and when you scrub within your NLE to have that frame updated in the CBC interface, with a button you can press to commit your current filter setup back to your NLE. What do you think about that as a solution to integrating CBC into an editing workflow?

    Eyedropper tool for Frame Colour!

    It's on the list, thanks!

    lensbaby custom blur presets

    Interesting - yeah, some of these blur details would be pretty tough to recreate in software, since they're so related to the physical position and movement of things. How would you envision that working?

    Supplied presets

    A lot of those differences (saturation before or after curve) is just based on what looked nicest on the test photos at the time. B+W Essentials has more variety, is a broad swath of different B+W styles. B+W Films are all just gamma curve and saturation (and grain in the G set), so for example they'll never raise the black level like some of the B+W styles do.

    Hue alignment slider on hue curve

    Also you can scroll horizontally if you're using a trackpad, then you don't need to be over the handle (just the bar at the bottom).
  6. That's a good point re:simplicity, we'll think about bringing this back, thanks!

    Crashes on save and wont open large JPEGs

    Did you send us the file? Send it to forum-files@nevercenter.com.
  8. Cool, well this is very useful, I'll add it to the list and we'll get a vertical line in there. Thanks!

    Distortion adjustments

    Interesting idea - noted (esp if more people want this kind of stuff and let us know here :]). Thanks for your kind words!
  10. Yep, the CB vectorscope is unwrapped, and exactly - the angles in the lighter (mostly-lower) line are essentially equivalent to the target areas in a regular vectorscope. What are those notches in the I-axis marking?

    Precision mode

    Cool ideas, we'll take a look!

    CameraBag on SurfacePro

    Hi Henry, we're looking into this - we've had varying reports and don't have a Surface Pro to test it on ourselves, but will keep trying to find a solution.
  13. Hi Juan, does it work if CameraBag Photo is already open? We've found that there's something causing CBP not to load images if the app wasn't already open (which we're working on fixing), but we've gotten it to work from Lightroom by having CBP already open.

    GPU acceleration

    Hi ElecProg, we use hardware acceleration on Mac for video processing in CameraBag Cinema, but currently our image processing is all on the CPU. Yeah, major pain to try to make it work across platforms, definitely something we want to keep looking to do as the software continues to grow though.
  15. Excellent stuff Doug! We do hope to add dropper functionality before long.

    Visible Masks

    Yeah, hoping to nicely develop the masking stuff further in 3.x releases, keep the requests coming.
  17. Hey Eric, would be happy to work to improve our vectorscope implementation. Can you tell us more about what the targets in a traditional vectorscope do for you that the top lines in our implementation don't? Can you show us an example of a skin tone line that you find to be useful in a traditional vectorscope implementation?

    Precision mode

    So you're talking about the color wheels adjustment in particular? Of note, if you're using a trackpad, particularly on Mac (windows trackpads vary so much) you can get great precision (more precise than screen pixels) by dragging slowly on the trackpad, on color wheels, color choosers, curve editors, and sliders.

    Zoom not working on some images v.3

    Noted, thanks!

    Selecting a Quicklook preset selects wrong preset

    Does this happen every time? Can you do us a favor and zip your entire presets directory and send it to us at support@nevercenter.com with a link to this forum post? I'm guessing you have some weird custom preset that is throwing things off somehow.
  21. Usually Camera manufacturers will provide free downloads for their RAW codecs from their site, which will let you get access to the full image and all the glorious extra color info!

    Apple Photos Extension

    Hi John, we removed the Apple Photos extension functionality in CameraBag Photo (it still exists in CameraBag 2) because it was such a pain to try to maintain two separate interfaces. Apple actually has a really bad system for how they make developers program extensions, if they improve that in the future then we'll consider doing it again. I actually wish they'd drop the whole idea of extensions and just bring back the simple and effective "open with" option where you can open photos from within the photos app in any other app. Apple drives us nuts sometimes.

    Cannot import photos on Mac

    Weird, obviously not what's happening on most systems - what version of OSX are you on? What hardware? Also, can you send us a file that won't load for you (to support@nevercenter.com)?

    Saving Video Files that won't on any other software

    It looks like the file you sent us is still not the readable original *before* you run it through CameraBag. We need an original file, plus the export settings you're using, to try to recreate the issue.
