Applications your way
With the Phase One SDK, you have a high degree of control of what parameters to apply while capturing or processing images from a Phase One cameras. For instance, you can specify the capture frequency, if you need your images to be shot at exact time intervals, just as you can process a given set of files with specific parameters set (e.g. exposure + 1, white balance at 5500 Kelvin).
What is included
The Phase One SDK includes interface components for your custom applications to work with the Phase One cameras in a production set up. It also includes components for you to automate image processing with your settings through the Capture One Processing Engine, without a need for loading or navigating the standard user interface of Capture One.
In addition to this, the Phase One SDK includes reference documentation and sample applications for guidance and inspiration. Included with the Phase One SDK is also free access to SDK updates and free access to online support (up to five support cases per year are included).
Capture One Processing Engine
The Capture One Processing Engine (COPE) is a command line tool used to execute post-processing on Phase One image files. It is used as an alternative to the Capture One Pro image processor for users looking for a more flexible, industrial type processing tool. COPE is used to set up specific parameters which are then automatically implemented in the image processing. The same parameters can be executed on multiple images.
Many of the functions featured in Capture One are also available via COPE. For example COPE can be used to set up output file formats, Kelvin, clarity, shadow recovery, saturation and much more.
