I just purchased On One Perfect Suite 8.5 as a plug in for Aperture. Does anyone have suggestions for a workflow?

I use the OnOne suite quite a bit. For photos you’ll process in the suite, I suggest doing basic adjustments in Aperture first. I’ll get exposure & white balance set first, deal with chromatic aberration (if necessary) then round trip the photo to OnOne. Check out the OnOne YouTube channel, too. I posted a video with them recently covering additional tweaks for integrating with Aperture.

Thanks Scott. I’ve watched and enjoyed your OnOne tutorial. What you seem to imply is to ignore the effects & brush brick in Aperture. Or do you utilize them on the return trip to Aperture?

It all depends ok the image. Sometimes I do all adjustments in Aperture. Others, usually my landscapes, I take into OnOne. After the round trip, I may apply sharpening in Aperture. There’s no right or wrong answer, I suppose. Whatever method gets you to your final image faster.

That’s interesting. Most comparisons of Aperture vs. LightRoom give the nod to LR for sharpening. I print my landscapes mostly in 13”x19” using the Aperture sharpening for print but I notice the Perfect has a nice sharpening tool for printing as well. Have you ever tried as comparison of the two for printing? I ask this as I doubt you would appreciate the difference on the monitor.

That's a good question… a comparison of output sharpening across a variety of tools (Aperture, OnOne, Nik Sharpener Pro, your-favorite-tool-here). 

I “punt” when it comes to printing :)  I make the image look good on screen and leave printing to a lab. Occasionally, I print a photo directly from Aperture, although at smaller sizes, no larger than 8x10. 

Hopefully others in the forums can share their experiences with output sharpening.

As I mentioned in another of the user questions, I am somewhat vague on what RAW conversions are taking place where.  So I have been following somewhat the same workflow as Scott… Aperture for WB, Exposure, somtimes Curves and/or Highlights etc.  I then round trip to OnOne.  However, since version 8.5 has improved browser, I have been considering going straight from camera to OnOne.  What would I lose by not going through Aperture as far as RAW conversion?  I do not have enough images to require a very dramatic DAM system.
