I like it and don't like it. For simpler operations such as object / color saturation, hue, contrast, etc. changes it's almost simpler to do it in photoshop manually creating your own selection mask.

For more complex situations, I do not like the way you enlarge the "circle of influence." By simply enlarging or shrinking the circle, things are selected you do not want to be. They should have engineered some sort of drawing tool so you could manually draw the selected areas.

Is it worth an outrageous $250? In my opinion, no. It's way overpriced for what it does.

I would recommend this, tho: while testing it, as opposed to making the changes directly in viveza, utilize the method where instead you create a selection mask then give control back to photoshop and manually brush your changes there. Hope that helped.
