I’ve updated to PL5 and FP6. I’ve had a look around the new Time Machine feature within the main FP6 user interface and really like it. I can make some use of what it offers.
I do all my editing within PL if at all possible, so I then found the menu option for Time Machine within PL5, but I can’t get it to work. All I can see is the historical image library, but no way to then select a ‘look’ and apply it to the image I’m curretnly editing.
Is there a tutorial anywhere showing me how to use Time Machine within PL5, or could someone offer some instruction for me please?
Thanks in advance
For the moment you will have to manually go to presets, scroll down to the Time Machine preset folder and select the preset that you found interesting. Perhaps @StevenL will respond and discuss the current state of this feature’s functionality.
Thank you Mark, that does seem a sensible way now you have described it.
Having tried the function first within the FP interface where you can click on the Time Machine interface to apply the preset, I was tripped up in my lateral thinking on how else to apply one!
Edit: Perhaps not so sensible a method after all. Despite reading your response @mwsilvers I still struggled to make it work as I instinctively went to the ‘Colour Rendering’ menu ot the ‘Colour’ tab and looked in the ‘Category’ and ‘Rendering’ drop down menus for the films/looks shown in the Time Machine interface!
I got there in the end and now know where to find them, phew
This feature is currently unfinished in the embedded version of FP 6 and DXO is aware of it. Hopefully, they will correct this in a future update to PL5.
It is indeed very early days for this feature and its integration within PL4/5.
I look forward to using it in its current incarnation and to seeing how it evolves in the future
Thanks for your help.
