I'm very new to working with RAW images and I have downloaded the trial version of Capture One. When I open the final product in CS4 I see vertical stripes, some light and some dark. Which are suppose to be the final output version? The light stripes or the dark stripes? It's had for me to evaluate the final produce if I can not tell which one I should be considering. But it does look nice even just using the auto feature.
Maybe you can post a shot of what you're seeing because you should not see 'stripes' at all. I used the trial version for a month before buying and it did not add stripes to anything when exporting a file to CS4 or CS5.
