No problem to install Silver Efex Pro 3 & Viveza 3 (german version) for PL 4.3
While they don’t work with old PS and LR 5.7 (in LR < Edit IN > they pop up briefly and disappear), fortunately it was possible to re-add the ‘old’ Nik 3 collection – Issues with Nik4 - #8 by Wolfgang
As there are a lot of users (see the sheer amount of complaints), who can’t make use of Nik4 (e.g. because of compatibility problems), DxO should rethink their installation procedure and/or support those customers with download possibility for Nik3.3.
Using an Eizo CG2730 (2560 x 1440 / 125 % scaling in Win 10), in Silver Efex Pro 3 and Viveza 3
the labeling is really small plus comes with (some) low contrast.
to compare the ‘columns’
in PL 4.3 they are wider and much better to read / handle
I suppose, the intent was to offer maximum overview, but with lacking readabilty it simply falls short.
The more Controlpoints and Local Options (sliders) are introduced, the more important a quick orientation will be. – I don’t mind further ‘Solo Mode options’ for a better overview
(below the Controlpoints → Color Selection / Simple Corrections / Selective Tones) or else.
Also, why to ‘waste’ so much vertical space with
instead of having the < Apply button > ‘compressed’ to one row, without this disturbing orange
design stripe – Problem in the new interface of Silver Efex - #3 by Wolfgang.
And also no need to ‘repeat’ xyz-file from PL4 / …
the user knows that.
I really like the addition of Color Selection (both programs), which might save some negative Controlpoints. Viveza’s new White Balance / Picker is also helpful.
But, why missing the opportunity to add Negative Controlpoints and Opacitiy Slider (both programs) as well History (Viveza 3) with this relaunch?
The Zone System is an outstanding feature of Silver Efex Pro 3 and should be permanently visible, when in use – Nik 4 - Silver Efex - Improve Zone System
