There is no such feature at this time.

Thank you. Would you be kind enough to make it a feature request.

Could you elaborate a bit on what you want from PM in this respect? Seems like I can scan the session\Capture folder to catalog and get images in PM.

I have already asked Bob for a Media Pro catalog ingestion - this would be one step further.

The problem is, that we no longer have the ability for a proper DAM with Capture One. C1 catalogs are not useful for this.
There was a very nice collaboration between Media Pro and C1 - up to C1 v11 and Media Pro 2.3. Now MPro is dead and C1 in v12.

What we would need is an export plugin for C1 which imports the previews into PhotoMechanic Plus 6. Phase One stores the previews in a rather strange format (cop). But if you cannot open store the previews into PM Plus, there is not much use.
The unmodified RAWs are not helpful since they will not be corrected in terms of WB, brightness, LCC etc.

It is unlikely that we'll support C1 Sessions or importing a Media Pro database.  We know nothing about them, whether they're open and documented, nor do we know anything about their preview formats.  We would have to reverse engineer their databases and preview file formats which, given limited development resources, we cannot do at this time.

Thank you for your feedback.
