Are you still using Lightroom? I'm anxious to hear what you think of Photo Raw 2019.I understand. I left at 2017 for a variety of product reasons. But I am back for 2019. Layers are now integrated and non-destructive. So there are really just two modules now....Browse and Edit. Edit covers what used to be Develop, Effects, and Layers.
I have not yet tried the Lr migration tool.

While I have C1P for Sony, that also is the major limitation but probably not worth the full C1P version as you gain more by having two programs for less than the full C1P. The issue is what to do when re-working the years worth non-sony photos you have, and currently if you scan a print/slide to jpg which would reflect no camera. To resolve this, using Affinity Photo but On1 Photo looks tempting particularly when eligible for upgrade pricing. I tried it several years ago when seen as a disaster but appears to have matured significantly.If you shoot Sony or Fuji, look at the special package pricing of C1P.
Just tried the free Fuji - a lot of missing features. So not for me. Shame I like the output (did last time I used it) but still get that confused feeling when trying it out this time. At least I did not have to try and understand referenced versus imported. ;-)If you shoot Sony or Fuji, look at the special package pricing of C1P.
My "one App to rule them all" dream seams to be in no danger of taking over Middle Earth.
For me Photo Raw finally hit critical mass with integrated layers, focus stacking...etc. I think we will see "blend if" and the move from ICC to DCP camera profiles in the next year or so. Using DCPs means we could import the DPC files from other sources or make them using ColorChecker Passport.
I agree with everything you said. It's really quite a bargain considering all that it does.necro-ing this thread. I'm trying out 2019.5, and I'm so far impressed. I'm using their tool to export my metadata/edits and I'll see how that is. I've been reading/watching reviews and the consensus for 2019 is that its coming close to the functionality of LR and is a worthy contender as a replacement. The price is hard to beat and being a perpetual license, I feel of all products I've tried its the closest to give me most of what I want.
I do like C1 and it does the best with its RAW processing, but the price is high, as is the cost of upgrades. I did the math a while ago and upgrading every third version was around the cost of the adobe subscription so it didn't make much sense. With On1, the cost is much lower and I don't have to upgrade annually. I actually bought the license in 2017 and now using it for the realsies it will only cost me 64 dollars.
