Thanks Peter.

Are EM2 catalogs portable between Mac and Windows versions? If so, are there known problems/limitations?

Thanks John! I'll probably give EM2 a try.
19  General / General Discussion / Best app for browsing high number of images on: October 12, 2008, 09:41:26 PM
I've used Iview for a long time, now updated to EM 1 (the latest version of 1). I also recently purchased Lightroom 2, but haven't yet spent a lot of time with it. With Iview/EM, I like how you could very quickly browse thumbnails in catalogs with thousands of images. But I've been getting a lot of crashes with EM lately, when doing things like resetting paths. And I think there's a limit--that's not that high--to how many files you can have in an EM catalog (?).

Anyway, I'm wondering which application is the best for browsing lots of thumbnails at once. I shoot over 30k images a year, and would like to be able to browse entire years if possible. I'm intrigued by the idea of having one LR catalog for all images, which IIRC Beardsworth recommends. Does that get slow though, with over 100k images? Is EM 2 faster and/or more reliable than 1? Any apps I'm missing? I've never used Portfolio...

I'm on a Mac Pro by the way. Advice would be appreciated.

Anyone know how many images EM2 can have without crashing or getting very sluggish?

21  Software Discussions / Lightroom / Re: Transitioning to Lightroom from Bridge for Browsing & Camera RAW? on: August 21, 2008, 03:32:46 PM
I just bought Lightroom 2 and am about to use it for the first time. Is there anything I need to know about referencing my raw buckets? I have one online and two offline hard drives now with my buckets. I'm about to start learning about LR here (http://www.adobe.com/designcenter/photoshoplightroom/), but I'm wondering if there is anything unique to Peter's Dam workflow that won't be covered in LR documentation.

- Jim


eta: I just read this thread: http://thedambook.com/smf/index.php?topic=3211.0 which led me to this Blog entry: http://www.beardsworth.co.uk/news/comment_1.php?id=1071_0_1_0_C and I think I'm starting to get it. I should just create one new catalog, and import all of my raw buckets into it (if I opt for the Beardsworth-recommended system)? If there are any threads or other sources of info regarding Peter's Dam workflow and LR that cover this issue, I'd appreciate hearing about them.

Is it possible to export my metadata from Microsoft Media Expressions to Adobe Lightroom 2.0?

Thanks,
Hugh Sakols


I don't know, but if you sync the metadata it will write it the image files, and then Lightroom should recognize it--I think. I don't have Lightroom but I do use Iview/Expression.

When you say II is ruled out--you've tried going straight from card to Photoshop without having II enter your contact info?
- Jim

No, I haven't, because if I did that, there wouldn't be any metadata there, except the EXIF. I'm not sure that IIP is ruled out actually; maybe it's writing metadata that Photoshop can't read?

Sorry, dumb question.

Have you checked all fields in File Info in Photoshop (when you get the file info dialog box, there is a sidebar--did you check all of the entries to see all fields)? Are you aware that different programs assign different names to the metadata fields?
- Jim

It gets odder - if I ingest Canon 5D .CR2 files, letting IIP put in my contact details, when I view them in Bridge, prior to converting to DNG, the metadata is there and visible. If I then open in Photoshop, the metadata is not there. In other words, metadata in pictures straight out of the camera is not showing, ruling out both iView and ImageIngester.

Thanks for the reply Peter.

Yes, usually one computer (G5 mac pro) and one camera, although rarely I ingest via Macbook, and I don't remember ever having trouble on the MB. It's definitely happened on at least 2 or 3 different cards, including brand new ones.

Quote
A card attached to the computer will sometimes show some images as corrupt, and then after reconnect, will show different ones as corrupt (or maybe none).  right?
Yes.

Quote
Have you tried to connect and reconnect cards a number of times, and see if you can force the error?
No, I'll try that.
Quote
Have you looked as the connectors on the media card with a magnifying glass?
Yes, the connectors look fine. And I've had the problem with 2 different card readers, and then bought a new FW800 one, which I've had the problem with.

Any chance you put new ram in recently, or swapped out a hard drive?
No on the ram, yes on the hard drive.

OK, it just happened again--here are details; forgive me if this is redundant:

- transferred a card with not too many images on it via II (including DNG converter). no problems
- put in another card with many images. II showed "read error" ingestion halted.
- I looked at the thumbnails on the card, via OS X finder (not the transferred files; the original files still on CF card)--one file showing generic icon instead of thumbnail icon
- quit II, ejected card, and inserted in back in reader (800FW CF reader). Checked file that had generic icon before--now that file is showing thumbnail
- I copied all files from card to a folder on my desktop (manually, via Finder).
- now I'm running II using the folder on my desktop as the source instead of CF card. seems to be working. This is what I've done in the past after experiencing the problem, though I have had problems when manually copying files to the desktop--where one or more files will end up with a generic icon.

I don't know if this helps or not. Anyone else experiencing anything else like this?

It sounds like you might have a corrupted preference file. I would start by trashing the Finder prefs and see how that works.

–Cannon

I'll give that a try, thanks.
29  General / General Discussion / Re: CF copy problems on: June 07, 2008, 09:34:34 PM
Thanks for the responses folks. I wonder if this might have to do with OS X, or my hard drive. I've tried 3 or 4 readers and many different cards. I've used USB cards, and now I have a FW 800 card. Sometimes I have no trouble, and other times I get errors. Just now II stopped and reported an error. So I started over without II, and tried just to copy all the files from the card into a new folder on my desktop. I got an error -50. Some of the files that were copied had generic white icons that wouldn't open. So then I rebooted the G5 and tried again to copy the files from card to desktop (again without II). and all files transferred fine.

I recently ran Diskwarrior on my startup drive, which seems to be fine. And I have over 23GB of free space.

If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them--this is getting frustrating.

Are you using the USB port on the front of the machine? Have you tried the other ones around back? Have you tried a firewire card reader? Do you ever run any system maintenance  utilites like Onyx or Cocktail? If not then you might try running the maintenance scripts and clearing your system caches. Another thing to try would be zapping the PRAM. Restart then hold down command-option-p-r until it chimes again. Sometimes that can sort out peripheral problems.

-Cannon

I've used front and back USB ports. Haven't tried a FW reader, but I'm now thinking of getting one. I have Onyx but haven't run it lately--I'll give that a chance. I'll try zapping the PRAM too. Thanks for the suggestions.
