Jim,
Bridge is not well-optomized to work across folders (nor is it well-optomized to work with large folders of images.)

What process, specifically, are you trying to accomplish across the folders?

Do you have DAM software that could do it instead?
Peter

I wanted to run Dr. Brown's 123 process. Usually I do my color-correcting and converting to jpgs to make proofs before I separate my job folders into buckets, but in this case I wanted to work on the files after a job was separated.

Is it possible to work with multiple folders in Bridge? That is, let's say I have a shoot that spans more than one bucket. Is there any way to work with the contents of two or more folders--to run Image Processor or whatever? I was trying via Bridge's "Find" to select multiple folders and save them as a collection. I don't know if that would work (I haven't worked with collections in Bridge) and there isn't, as far as I can tell, a way to search by folder name.

I've gone back to iView, as I was having trouble with EM and there didn't seem to be much if any advantage to using it over IV.

I guess we should avoid this Apple vs. MS debate. But EM really does seem like a pain at this point. Just checking for the latest version is difficult.

Maybe because a more ego-driven company uses "i" for its prefix?

John

I'd take an ego-driven company with products that work well, and are well supported, over a more humble company with support and technical problems. I'm not sure if you're referring to iView or Apple, but iView was doing pretty well before MS bought it, and I haven't heard too many complaints about Aperture  or other Apple products (IIRC, Apple has won awards for their customer support).

Maybe someone has already posted this, but here's a decent review from Macworld comparing LR and Aperture:

I understand that Microsoft is a big company, and they're busy and don't want to be deluged with individual Q's.

Big company or small, a product should have good customer support. If Microsoft doesn't have the knowledge or resources to give proper support to EM, then they shouldn't have purchased Iview. If any company has deep  pockets it's Microsoft; I can't think of any reason why they shouldn't have their act together with EM.

I've been using Iview for a long time, and it's an important part of my workflow. This is very frustrating and seemingly unnecessary. I guess they have their best minds working on Zune.  :Smiley

It's not a script - it's a custom file info panel. As well as allowing you to enter data, you can see the data entered in iView and written into the the file.

You can also enter custom field values with a script - Peter's original suggestion.

So two different ways to write metadata.

John

Thanks for the clarification. On the site you linked to it's listed as a script.
54  Software Discussions / Bridge/ Camera Raw / Re: Custom metadata fields in Bridge? on: September 10, 2007, 12:41:07 PM
Isn't the CS3 panel on this site? Anyway, it's also here.

Generally, it is very inconvenient to enter this information in Bridge. For instance, in iView you can list possible values using Vocabulary Editor.

John
Thanks John and Peter. I guess I'll stick with iView for metadata, but it's good to  know about the script.
55  Software Discussions / Bridge/ Camera Raw / Re: Custom metadata fields in Bridge? on: September 09, 2007, 04:04:55 PM
In the iView panel that is shown when you do a File Info in Bridge.

John

Hmm, I'm not seeing an iView panel.

I entered my keywords and other meta info using iView and a dng file. Then I synched it with iView. Now when I click on that thumbnail in Bridge, and hit File: Info, I do see my keywords and other metadata (location, copyright, supp. category), but I don't see an iView panel--or am I misunderstanding you?

I can continue using iView for metadata entry, but I was thinking about trying it with Bridge instead, if that's practical.
56  Software Discussions / Bridge/ Camera Raw / Re: Custom metadata fields in Bridge? on: September 09, 2007, 02:45:57 PM
It's not just scripting - it's custom File Info panels too like the one iView supplies. So you would enter MyFieldName=value.

John

Where/how would you do this?
57  Software Discussions / Bridge/ Camera Raw / Custom metadata fields in Bridge? on: September 03, 2007, 08:01:04 PM
Somehow I feel like I should know the answer to this...

I used to add my metadata in Iview, but I'm trying it out in Bridge CS3 now. Is it not possible to add custom metadata fields in Bridge? I assumed it was, but I can't see where to do that.

59  Software Discussions / Media Pro & Expression Media / Re: Expression Media - xmp files show in catalog on: June 10, 2007, 10:39:18 PM
Here's a screenshot of the problem:


I just tried importing a different folder, where some of the xmp's showed up, and others didn't. The ones that are showing up have generic text icons in the finder (not in Expression), the xmp's that are not showing up in my catalog have Bridge icons (the blue and white icons are the CR2 files; every other file is an XMP sidecar--both the ones with text icons and the ones with red and white icons):


Hmm, I'll try processing these folders with Bridge and see if I can figure anything out. I recently upgraded Bridge to 2.1.0--I wonder if that could have anything to do with this.

One more thing: when I import the same folders into IviewMP, I don't see any xmp sidecar files.

60  Software Discussions / Media Pro & Expression Media / Re: Expression Media - xmp files show in catalog on: June 10, 2007, 10:07:43 AM
Thanks for the suggestion--I did remove the splash screen (and now I'll probably make my own to replace it).

I checked catalog importers but didn't find xmp's listed.

What's happening when I import a folder of CR2 files, is I get the xmp files in their too, including thumbnails (the thumbnails look like a text file).
