This is the new Perspective tool.
Image taken with a 10-18 EFS lens on Canon 550. (16-30mm effective on a crop sensor 550D)
The first one is the standard corrected image done with just DxO as normal. Pretty horrible I’m sure you will agree.
The second is 2 minutes work using the new Perspective Efex tools. Not bad at all (would be better with a little more time spent)
@tilltheendofeternity, are you talking only about Perspective Efex not working with Affinity? From the Nik Collection 3 release notes: “Perspective Efex not available from Serif Affinity” - so it seems to me the combination isn’t supported yet. Or do you mean something was working and now with Nik 3 it isn’t?
Looks like when I used Perspective Efex, when it created the tiff file it screwed with Affinity and it couldn’t read file properties for anything - CR2 or Tiff afterwards. Note that Luminar was unaffected hence my guess it was DxO which borked my Affinity
I never tried to use Perspective Efex from Affinity though. Used in Photolab and then tried to export as normal.
Had to remove all DxO software and Affinity, then hunt down the wreckage BOTH companies manage to leave all over Windows. Lousy uninstall cleanup from both sadly.
Got Affinity back, now need to put DxO back (NOT the new NIK lol)
I use Revo Uninstaller Pro for uninstalling software, it automatically finds and allows you to delete leftover files/folders and Registry entries. You can also Install software with RevoUninstaller ‘watching’ so the uninstall operation gets everything, but I have found over many years on many machines that it works just great. Never caused any post uninstall problems.
The free version is very good and works very well, but as I us it all the time to uninstall, I bought the Pro version.
As a long time user of Viewpoint I was wondering why DXO aren’t offering a discounted price to owners of Viewpoint when they buy NIK 3 as the technology is now incorporated in the NIK Perspective tool. I bought NIK V3 but now have two pieces of software that do pretty much exactly the same thing. I think that DXO should follow the example of another popular software company that, if you already own one of their products and they release a later technology, they upgrade you for free, I’m not asking for free but a discount would seem to me to be fair in a case such as this.
Lucky timing for a new PhotoLab user. I am in the process of leaving Lightroom behind. I already had PhotoLab 2 for use as a plug in with LR but the first step in my plan was upgrading to PhotoLab3 last month and starting to use it as a standalone processor.
I have the Film Pack on a 30 day trial and I was about to download Viewpoint. I had also decided not to buy Nik Collections, which I have never used before and was not very familiar with and thought was too expensive.
Then Nik3 dropped. I quickly changed tack and bought Nik 3 and dropped plans to buy Viewpoint. And I guess I don’t need Filmpack either but I have been having fun with it and I might keep it. I do a fair amount of HDR processing, so I will be checking out HDR Efex but I also have another package for that.
For better or worse,. I dived in with both feet into Dxo but I am feeling pretty confident. I shoot mainly Canon but I have an Olympus TG-6, for which PhotoPlus 3 fortunately added support added with latest update. But I also have a Fuji X100S, which I cannot move over to PhotoPlus. So short term I am going to continue using the Lightroom Catalogue for downloading images from my cameras and keeping them organized but also for processing RAW for my x100S.
the big advantage of Viewpoint is that it is integrated into DPL and hence you can work on rawfiles and therefore you can always come back and rework it because all the changes are saved in the database and in the sidecar if you opt for it.
Filmpack will not only add the different films but also some sliders i.e microcontrast into DPL and of course you can work on raw files.
