Title: ImageIngesterPro - Partition by size?
Post by: Michael Garner on December 30, 2006, 08:45:44 PM
Marc,

I just found the ImageIngesterPro beta yesterday and have been spent most of the day working with it to understand how to use it in my workflow (or better to say, how to improve my workflow). It is quite impressive and addresses most of the things that I have been doing manually. Thank you very much for all of your hard work.

A question about the partition option. Are you considering the capability of partitioning by volume as opposed to file count? This would make it easier to segment folders in batches which would align with backup media size (e.g. 4.4GB if using DVDs as a backup media). I know that this can be approximated by using the file counts. But in my case, some shoots are entirely JPEG, others are RAW and others still are RAW+JPEG, depending on the nature of the shoot. In each of those scenarios, the size of the files varies significantly. Specifying a partition size would allow ImageIngesterPro to fill the folders to a consistent size, regardless of the file types.

Thanks again.
Michael
