I just wonder where Media Pro's place is - now that Capture One Pro 7 has its own catalogue function.

Is it just an application for those on older Capture One software, and will the focus of Phase One will be on the catalogue in Capture One Pro 7 instead of further investing in Media Pro?

Media Pro had great potential. It would have been a true duo approach to Cataloging and Developing. And it would have been the advantage OVER LR as well. by keeping things clean and simple and allowing each to do its core functions.  But Nnoooooo, they had to follow suite and be complaincent and conform to what someone else is doing.  So sad someone convinced PhaseOne to go that route of All-in-One Dev/DAM software.

In Media Pro, I had issues with TIF and PSD formats which halted my use, other than a few minor issues that would eventually evolve.

I too would like to know also if there is any news about Media Pro and its future.

I contacted Phase One support with this question, and their reply was basically that they tried to implement to most interesting features of Media Pro into Capture One Pro 7.

It looks like the days of Media Pro are counted.

I honestly don't see an advantage to have two separate pieces of software instead of one piece nested into the other. Also, why those editing capabilities in Media Pro?

The Capture One Pro 7 catalog with its ability to view images offline seems to be a good direction.

The only problem with Capture One 7.0.2 is stability. My first attempt to build a catalog ended in a crash and a corrupted catalog.

You can say that if you are using Media Pro just for image archiving then it is a sensible choice to move to Capture One Pro as you then have the all-in-one package - what the greater majority of our client base wishes for.

If you are using Media Pro for other file types, like PDF for example, then these are currently not supported in Capture One Pro.

There are no plans to end Media Pro as yet.

Besides what David pointed out about different file type, is the ability to allocate memeory and resources from an editing task then almost simultaniously doing file managment and fast drive access tasks.
Already C1v7 has been crashing on me more regularly since the forst v7.01 update. Before it v7 was pretty solid as I expereinced. (It could have been my usage?). Now introducing this constant switch from 2 hungry tasks will likely complicate the matter.

It's tough to hear how MediaPro would be eventually phased out. I purchased it, and out the gate, I wasn't able to use it properly. It had issues with PSD files, and large TIFs, which made my purchase Codecs and still had issues with varying TIF files of different bits or other variables making up PSD and TIF files, I just gave up and thought I'd wait for an upgrade....Sad really. I didn't even use it.
