Now that we know we can include Control Point information in a Nik Recipe - and save it as a Nik sidecar/.np file - then;
- this provides a template/basis for automating this process (so that we don’t forget to do so ourselves)
- this would make the Nik Collection consistent with PL’s handling of sidecar files
- this would mean that the Nik Collection does not “break” the concept of non-destructible editing (as it does when there’s no means of recreating applied corrections without doing so manually).
PL has the following Preference settings;
A similar set of settings in, say, Color Efex Pro could manage loading and saving of the current Recipe (ie. stack of Filters) in a Nik sidecar (.np) file, WITH current Control Point information … as an image is loaded or saved in the Tool.
Wouldn’t that be excellent ?!
