One of the features mentioned in the release notes for the latest version of Capture One is the improved rendering of X-Trans files. I briefly touched on this when I posted about the update last week, but as I was away, I didn’t have access to my main computer to properly show you the changes. So in this post I will go into it in a little more detail.

First off, let me make this clear. The changes are very, very subtle to the naked eye. Many people probably won’t notice it. If you don’t see anything in your images, I really wouldn’t waste your time trying to find it. It fixes some very rare and very specific artefacts, that again, most people won’t notice. I’ve spent a lot of my career analysing images for issues, so it’s something that I’m used to, but for the vast majority of people, this will probably come across as being incredibly nerdy about it. The artefacts are quite small, and you need good eyes to see them.

So what is changed? Well, the update fixes some issues that can occur when there is very fine repetitive detail such as tree branches, leaves, foliage and things like that. These issues were very minor to begin with, and not nearly as noticeable as the same problems in Lightroom for example. If you zoom to 100% on these images you could sometimes see what looked like pixel diffusion on some edges. Again, and I can’t stress this enough,
