I have been using AI Clear as the first step in my workflow on pretty much all photos and have noticed something that I don’t believe has been mentioned in any of the threads in this forum.
Photos are sent from Capture One as a tif and then edited in Topaz Studio. AI Clear is used (almost always at default settings) and then “Apply” is selected to create a second tif where further adjustments are applied. When “Apply” is selected should the resultant image not be identical to the image that had AI Clear used on it? That was my understanding of how Studio works. In any case there is a slight loss of sharpness in the resultant image - as if only 95% of the effect has been applied. Not a huge problem but it is definitely noticeable. Is this something anyone else has noticed?
