ON1 2021 TRIAL



  • Lim Kowkin

    Thanks for a very informative post. It would be interesting to hear from others who used 2021 for some time now if it is really worth the upgrade from 2020.6? I had a lot of faith in ON1 since ver 2019 and jumped on the mobile 360 purchasing a yearly subscription. What a disappointment that was (and still is)! I did upgrade to 2020, but it was so buggy that I practically stopped using it. I am a long-time beta tester for Adobe LightRoom (all four of them), and I never saw so many glitches, even in early beta versions there. Still, ON1 has some appeal, and I like the workflow (when it works). The question is  - how much is 2021 really improved compared to 2020.6?

    2020.6 does not fix all reported issues. Some of those are fixed in 2021. So, my assumption would be that 2020 is dead and 2021 is the only way forward. The pauses are introduced in 2021, but, it does help reduce the outright crashes.

    Given both have their issues like rendering/tonal adjustments etc, you can make a call on the feature set.

    Is there available a list of improvements or bugs resolved in 2020.6?

    No, there isn't.

    Each and every release of On PR raw has a "Release Notes & Download" page which can be found here

    For the 2020.6 page this is what is listed.

    Unfortunately they only list two fixes in the first two bullets. Last bullet is just "Bug Fixes"
