I am writing this with all due respects to the developers without offending or wounding any one's feelings. I am just expressing myself here on my own disappointment with this Luminar Neo 1.0.1. Maybe it satisfies many users. Maybe it is just my own personal disappointment. But still I thought better to write it and get clarifications.
I thought Luminar Neo 1.0 itself would be close to final excepting the two features they had described that they would be available in very near future.
They had advertised or mentioned in their website or somewhere (I don't remember) that Luminar Neo would combine the features of Luminar 4 and Luminar AI plus additional AI features. OR am I wrong or had I misinterpreted or misinfered myself on their saying it ? I am so much disappointed with the Layers. When they had said they would "combine Luminar 4 & Luminar AI features", I expected the layers to be the same as in Luminar 4. But it is just an image layer. To me, it is useless, unless it is like how it was in Luminar 4. I see that this has been already discussed here. But no positive answer from Skylum for this has been made whether the Layer feature would be updated to what it was in Luminar 4.
Where are the basic tools? Gradient masks, linear & radial etc.? These are not advanced tools and are most essential IMHO. Even for this there has not been an answer from Skylum if it would be included in the next update.
Without these features, I am still stuck with editing in Luminar AI even though I had purchased Luminar Neo - I was one of the earliest birds to do advance purchase. And, I can't stick on to Luminar AI because it will not recognize Sony A7IV - the latest Sony addition - to which I may be upgrading from my Sony A7 III camera. I was so enthusiastic about Luminar Neo, but I am greatly disappointed now. May be it is just me.
Again let me reiterate that I mean no offense to any one. And kindly excuse me in case anyone felt so. Just expressing my feelings. Sincerely hoping to get the features of Luminar 4 layers and Gradient masks linear & radial, in the upcoming updates.
