New update today 11/07/2022 Fixed my masking problems
I just downloaded, installed and started some testing on today's new release. I can say with today's release one of the masking issues I was having is fixed. Tack sharp and Nonoise seem to be working better as well. I'm not seeing the "crunchiness" and artifacts I was seeing before. Overall a nice improvement.
I see a lot better masking now too. I haven't tried NoNoise or Tack Sharp yet. But, so far it looks like a great update, and thankfully On1 listens to their customers0
Pity that they have not made the mask created using the Mask AI Sky option as good as the mask created by Sky Swap where tree branches are concerned.0
Actually I believe that's what they did. In the video On1 released on the update, they specifically mentioned using the Sky Swap AI sky selection for Mask AI now. In my testing so far, the sky masking when using Super Select and Mask AI seems noticeably better than it was in the last release. The preview of the mask still looks poor, but the actual mask that's created handles things like tree branches better. Still not perfect all the time, but that was true with Sky Swap as well. The Refine Mask brush also seem to work better now for fixing problem areas.0
I plan to test the new masking on a recent image where the masking couldn't handle branches at all, and resorted to Luminar Neo, where I was able to replace the sky with one click.0
I have Neo as well and did do a brief comparison with a couple images. I think Neo still does a better job at masking in its sky replacement than On1 does, even with the latest update. That said, I really don't do sky replacement as much as sky editing, and On1 is my preferred editing tool, so I hope On1 continues to improve the accuracy of its AI masking.0
Sadly, the new update hasn't helped with this image, no matter how much I tinker with the settings.0
