TWiP Apps 06: DxO OpticsPro 11; A PRIME Upgrade

In this episode of TWiP Apps, I welcome a very special guest and long time friend, Kirk Paulsen, from the company DxO. DxO is a name you’ve undoubtedly heard before; possibly as the DxO Mark score on a camera or lens you were researching, or on their new camera, the DxO ONE. Perhaps you own some of their software, such as DxO FilmPack or ViewPoint, or Optics Pro. And that last one is what we’ll be looking at today. DxO has just released a major update to DxO Optics Pro, now at version 11, and in today’s show we’ll get a close-up look at what’s new and improved in this release, as well as talk about workflow and integration between Optics Pro and Lightroom, or whichever digital asset manager you use.

  1. I thought I found the solution to too much time postprocessing with TWIP Apps 2 Perfectly Clear until Episode 6 with DxO OpticsPro 11. Great show PhotoJoseph!

  2. Does anyone know if DxO Optics supports a non-destructive workflow? I thinking of the use case that I bulk process some photos and don’t like the way one comes out can I go back to the original raw? Thanks.

  3. DxO OP 11 is now more attractive. These upgrades are well thought out; they are not gimmicky, and they are photography based. I think I’m ready to move on from my Aperture baggage and consider other workflows. It’s a shame that DxO OP doesn’t work with Fuji X-trans sensors, but the Fuji images don’t need that much work anyway.
