Mask AI issues



  • Brian Lawson Community moderator

    If you want a mask created without automatically applying any settings you can add a Local Adjustment or one of the Effects as we always have, then go to the Mask Options and choose the AI mask you want.

  • Gilles Subias

    Thanks. That don't explains anyway the difference between selected persons and adjustment not "adjusted" at the AI mask, the lacking zones are so big (head, shoes...). I think A is not so I !

    You're right, it doesn't. That's because I don't have an answer for that question except to say the company knows about this and is working to improve it.

    If you want to help you can send a copy of your raw file to tech support so it can be used to better train the AI engine. You'll have to put it on a web sharing site and send the download link in your support request. Tell them you're offering it for their use.

    How to submit a problem to ON1 Tech Support - A Step-by-step Guide

    I thought I would like this Super Select from all the demos I saw before the release of 2023. However I am disappointed and feel it was not ready for release. It's just hit and miss with Super Select. I sure hope in the very near future they get Super Select where it can actually work the way we were led to believe it would. 

    For now I plan to keep using Lightroom Classic (auto masking works) and ON1 as a plugin. 

    One thing I have noticed I don't have to use Force Quit when exiting ON1 as that issue seems to have been fixed.

    While I understand there is a learning curve for a new AI feature and I never expect a perfect mask, I do wish the hyped up previews could have been a little more honest. From all the "incredible" reviews I saw on YouTube using a prerelease version, I expected the AI to be a lot more advanced than it is. I think there would be a lot fewer complaints if the reviews had been more up front about the limitations.

    I agree with Gordon and Gilles, in terms of the limitations and poor performance of Super Select AI.

    As mentioned, based on the "incredible" reviews on Youtube, I was expecting a more mature product.

    Having used this for about 1 week, I have come to the conclusion that Super Select AI is a waste of time for me.

    I have resorted to using the Mask brush (B) with the Perfect Brush enabled.  That seems to give much better results.

    Coming from a different software (Corel Paintshop Pro which many people consider rather primitive, erroneously), I admit that my expectations have not been met.

    I just loaded the first update this afternoon.  I am running a stand alone version of PhotoRaw 2023.

    My system is Windows 10 with i-7820, SSD drive, Nvidia Quadro M1200 with 32 GB Ram.  

    The failure of Super Select is only one of the let downs of ON1 software.  I will post another message to the forum on the other issues.

    This is disappointing .....
