Roundtrip to ON1 Photo RAW from Capture One Pro

My complete library of images is in Capture One Pro but I generally roundtrip to Photoshop or On1 for content aware retouching and effects and the resulting version is returned back in Capture One beside the orginal. This still works perfectly with Photoshop but is no longer working with ON1.  From Capture One I go to image ‘edit with’ and choose ON1 PhotoRaw 2019 and it gives the options of jpg, tiff, and psd. It prepares for export in the chosen file type then I press ‘edit variant’
It states preparing variant – then opens ON1 – ON1 flashes as if accepting the image from C1 but the image does not open! In the past it did and using the same procedure Photoshop opens the image perfectly, as does ‘Silver Efex Pro’
If in Capture One, I ‘edit with’ to Photoshop and then when in Photoshop, I go to ‘Filter’ – ON1, the image opens in ON1 perfectly. I can then use ON1, save back to Photoshop, then save back to Capture One.
This works – but is obviously a crazy workaround. I love so many things about On1 Photo Raw 2019, I hope I can soon use it again directly from Capture One.

I am using a 27″ iMac running Mojave 10.14.2 with Capture One Pro 12 , Photoshop CC, and ON1 PhotoRaw 2019.

There are so many things I love about On1 that I hope I can get back to using it directly from my Library in Capture One

    The use of 3rd party plugins seems to be blind spot for On1, I’ve been using On1 since inception, and currently using the latest version (2019.2), and in many instances my workflow consists 70% to 95% inside On1 RAW, its a brilliant easy to use piece of software and I would like to wean completely off PS/LR, but.

    The inability of On1 to allow 3rd party plugins has me moving more and more back to PS/LR, as my image processing needs change over time, I am tending more and more to use of Photoshop Actions, Tonality CK, Filter Forge etc etc, none of which can be used inside On1.

    Currently On1 RAW is an excellent LR replacement, if all you want to use is a very good means to address Image rendition that doesn’t move outside the basics, once you have a need to utilise plugins, your at a dead stop.

    The fact that PS/LR have seen the requirement for the use of 3rd party plugins leaves me at a loss as to why On1 simply do not see the same need.

    If On1 RAW is ever going to be a PS/LR replacement it needs to lift its game to the use of 3rd party plugins.

    Has this been solved by any new updates with ON1 or is it Capture One 12 not permitting direct access to ON1 2019?

    Hi, still no success I’m afraid, I just tried again. On 1 opens but not with the image from Capture One. It used to be possible but I don’t know which application has changed. If you have any luck, please let me know.

    I just sent this conversation to the capture one forum with a link to this site and hopefully someone over there have an answer…I too just want to use CP12 and ON1 and not have to deal with Adobe products anymore.

    Although I do not use capture1 or Adobe, I have the same issue with at least four other programs when trying to shell out to On1.
