My situation: Running an older stand alone version of LR Classic + My Macbook Pro is a 2011. (I actually tried updating to the new full Adobe suite with subscription but my display is too old to function with it so I had to cancel it- very frustrating - so, I just stayed with LR Classic; and also testing out C1 now).
I downloaded the free trial of C1 Full plus the C1 Fuji Express suite and am trying those out. But, the film simulations are not there yet. So who knows when C1 will get it and as far as I know the old LR Classic version I have will not be getting an updated Film Sim package…
So, my question: Will the detail loss be minimal if I use Silkypix to add the film simulations to the RAW files, make any necessary edits and then export the TIFF files to C1 Fuji Express and/or LR for final touches? It seems like this is the best work around and most cost effective route for me to take since C1FE is free and my old LR Classic is already installed.
I have done this with several photos and it actually looks okay to me. Has anyone else done this and what are your thoughts on the final quality going SP Raw + Film Sims > then to LR / C1?
