Hi Bencsi,

deleting the database is just a workaround for a problem with Optics Pro / Photolab disability to handle external edits of dop files in a sensible way.

I do not like this workaround and I would prefer if DxO would fix the root cause (as I wrote in the thread).

Optics Pro / Photolab handling of dop files has several issues. One is that they got re-written just by browsing a folder (this thread). Another is the virtual copies problem described by "eolsen" in the linked thread. Another problem is that Optics Pro / Photolab mangles the files each time you change a bit. This kills the possibility to check for differences with a text compare utility.

Agree, found the new forum also just by clicking on the forum link on the new nikcollection site and also this forum is not on the main page none where mentioned. No idea why. Couldn't be difficult to add a button unter the support menu.

There is a + button in the lower right corner of the Perspective and Volume Deformation panels in your photo. Did you try to click on these buttons? Maybe it will reveal something.
Well, how about that!

I have been using this product since about version 6 or 7 of Optics Pro and I never noticed that before. Clicking on the "+" opens up the missing entries. Thanks so much.

So I guess there is no ViewPoint panel in the Mac version, but the functionality is still there, buried hither and yon ...

Thank you for the photo. I have been looking for a panel with the name Dxo ViewPoint, but have not been able to find one. On the other hand the Mac version looks like this:

I uploaded an image to the forum but could find no way to add it to the post. Must be missing something.

Perhaps there is no actual "Dxo ViewPoint" panel since there is some of the same icons on the menu. However there is no Up/Down, Left/Right or H/V Ratio entries.

I don't know why it hasn't been announced here, but DxO has a new forum for users at https://feedback.dxo.com/ .
Thanks for the tip, Bob. I had no clue about it. When did it start?

DxO is constantly shooting in its own foot: this lack of information is putting people off. I feel really demotivated with the product and the company.
Sigh!

DxO PhotoLab (Mac) / Re: Moved on.
« Last post by crisscross on June 15, 2018, 05:24:31 pm »
I think I have moved back rather than on, ie saw nothing in PL worth having that was not in DxO11

However as the DxO implementation of UPoint was so bad, I have revisited Nikon Capture NX2 where it was brilliant, at first out of interest and now changed workflow:

Correct in DxO11 as usual, then 'Export to application', if something like the eye area of a bird needs selective lightening, to CNX2, then, as the sharpening in DxO is fairly pathetic, transfer to GraphicConverter 9, where the Unsharp Mask is far, far better and Sharpen Luminance a useful polish.

That does mean going over to .tif earlier than is ideal, but outputting .tif at the exact size of the crop generates a very 'solid' file to finish work. CNX2 won't accept a modern .nef file, but I am glad I didn't bin it when I was about to, just happened to notice someone else with similar bird repertoire still using it effectively. For landscape work DxO makes far better use of modern .nef

Unless PL 1.2 is offered for free trial, I am not paying serious upgrade money to see if it has moved forward and re-instated the crop size read-out

DxO PhotoLab (Mac) / ViewPoint in PhotoLab?
« Last post by MikeFromMesa on June 15, 2018, 04:13:53 pm »
I was looking over the "other" Dxo forum and noticed a posting in the PhotoLab for Windows section. The poster had asked about activating ViewPoint in PhotoLab and got a response saying that if he/she activated ViewPoint in PhotoLab they would make the ViewPoint panel available in PhotoLab.

I have ViewPoint and PhotoLab on my system, ViewPoint is active, but I can find no ViewPoint panel. Is there a ViewPoint panel for PhotoLab? Or only the "parallel" and "rectangular" alignment controls in the menu bar at the top of the application?
