Capture One Cultural Heritage (CH) was built on the same platform as the revolutionary and industry leading, Capture One Pro. Capture One CH is designed to support and enhance cultural heritage workflows from capture through post-processing by simplifying and automating post-production tasks.


AutoCrop & Auto Rotate Tool

Exponentially improve productivity by automating cropping in post-processing. Select cropping options for flat art reproduction or books, including alignment of material to specific corners or proof margins.

The AutoCrop & Auto Rotate tool also has optional positive or negative margins, user-selectable alignment points for de-skewing, and modes for flat materials, bound materials and fixed crop size.

Film Scanning Tools

Negative Film Reproduction Tool eases the conversion of black & white and color film, as well as other transmissive materials – both positives and negatives. It provides for automatic inversion, easier automatic adjustments and better control of color rendering. All edits are non-destructive and allow the creation of both a master file of the shown-as-negative capture as well as an inverted-for-viewing derivative.

Combined with the DT Film Scanning Kit this tool provides a huge boost in workflow speed and quality.
