The power of Machine Learning

Migrating from apple Aperture to Capture one while keeping your retouching and organization is possible with Avalanche for Capture One
During the migration, Avalanche uses several solutions for quality rendering.

First Avalanche uses geometric information to accurately transfer your crops, rotations, flips and more.

Avalanche makes extensive use of Machine Learning to find the values of image adjustments that best replicate the look and feel of each image in the original catalog. Ajustments such as white balance, exposure and light, color and tint, highlights and shadows all treated using AI.

Avalanche has been trained on a large collection of image that were manually adjusted for visual match in CaptureOne, Aperture, Lightroom and Luminar. From this extensive database covering many photographic styles, many cameras and formats, Avalanche has learned how to convert
