    Great video, Martin. As you can imagine, I am particularly interested in the Regine Mask feature as I can use it for my animal portraits. However, auto masking has been around for a while now in many apps and in every demonstration they use photos where there is already a clear edge between the main object and its background making it easy to for the software to do its mask refining job. It’s the same in your video where the fox is in front of a blue bag. In the real world, however, things aren’t always separated so well. My question: Have you got any experience that you can share as to how well Refine Mask does its job in more difficult situations like the fox in front of a yellow-ish rock?

      Hi Christian,

      I’m pleased you enjoyed the video.

      Putting the fact that my fox photo was indeed shot in the “real world” aside, I see what you mean.

      I’ve just grabbed a lion shot (thinking of your work) and selected the background, which was a little bit dark, but similar color palette and the Refine Mask still did a really good job. I’ll put a quick video together and add it to this post later so that you can see what I mean.

    Looks like you can only turn annotations on and off when you are NOT using the annotations draw/erase tool. Just change to some other tool and the on/off feature should work properly.

    Also annotations seem to be only drawn on the Background layer so there is no point creating a separate layer for them. They only get a “layer” when exporting to Photoshop. Please correct me if I am wrong.

      I’ll give that a try Greg, although I think I’d already did that.

      I know there’s no point or reason to creating the layer, but it was the only thing I could find to do that helped. Maybe it was helping me to change tools or something. 🙂

    Martin – Nice video on the updates contained in Capture One 11. The new layers feature available wherever one might be in the development phase, and the ability to localize changes to almost any variable (I say “almost” because I’m not certain it is every variable, though I suspect it is) is absolutely terrific. Thanks for encouraging us to try C1 Pro when it was in version 10. Although I found the learning curve to be somewhat steep, now that I’m comfortable with it, I’m unlikely to ever go back to LR, even though I continue to pay for LR and PS, because PS is still invaluable. Thanks, again.

      You’re very welcome David. Thanks for letting me know that this was useful and that you’re enjoying Capture One Pro! It’s always nice to hear of another happy convert. 🙂

      All the best!
