Film Styles – Layer Enhanced editions


Recently Phase One released Capture One Pro 11 – a fantastic upgrade with lots of the new possibilities.
Here is a complete review of all the new features and the most exciting one is applying styles to layers and changing their opacity.

We’ve updated our styles to be compatible with Capture One 11’s new features and released them as Layer Enhanced editions.
Let’s see what you can create now with updated Film Styles and Capture One Pro 11.

Styles in Layers

First of all, you can now change the opacity of all the color Film Styles.
Simply create a new filled layer and apply a style to it:

If previously some Film Styles were too strong for your image, now you can manually setup the opacity and find the look that fits your vision best.

Applied style – Kodak Royal Gold 400 v4 Winter from Film Styles Extended Set.

In Capture One 11 you can apply single styles for up to 16 layers per image, which means you can mix different styles using brush/eraser and layer opacity.

Applied styles: on Warm Color layer – Fuji Provia 100F v4 Summer; on Water & Sky layer – Kodak Ektar 100 v4 Winter from Film Styles Extended Set.

Styles also work perfectly with masks created from Color Editor.
Need to apply a style on skin tone only? No problem, just create a mask from skin color and apply a style to it.

Don’t forget to use all the useful tools which Capture One offers for layers.
For example, you can create a mask based on skin color, copy this mask onto a new layer, invert it and apply two different Film Styles to the layers.

Step 1

Creating a mask from skin color to have a layer with skin mask only.

Step 2

Copying skin mask to a new layer and inverting it to have a layer with a masked environment.

Step 3

Applying different film styles to each layer and adjusting opacities to achieve the best look.

Capture One Pro 11 release brings new meaning to styles and significantly expands its functionality.
Simply download our 12 free styles and try them on layers. It’s an entirely new way of working with RAW images.

Black & White Styles

Our strong belief is that you can get the true B&W image with Black & White tool only. That’s why all our B&W styles are using Black & White tool.
Unfortunately, Black & White tool is not supported by layers yet.

That’s why we decided to develop B&W styles with different opacities.
Each B&W style in Layer Enhanced editions has four versions with different opacities: 100%, 75%, 50% and 25%.

That’s right – now you can manage B&W opacity. Even Capture One, out of the box, doesn’t allow this.

At the same time, we guarantee to provide you with a free update on styles when B&W tool receives a layer support in Capture One!
