1  General / General Discussion / Re: Question about Buckets and Derivative Files on: November 03, 2010, 06:22:32 PM
I read the first edition of the book three or four times and the second just as many, and if I were to read it again, I would learn something new.  I tapped Peter's brain with nit-picky questions more times than I would ever want to admit.  I guess the best advice I could give is keep digging and have faith that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  It's really not as bad as we make it out to be.  How many times have we found that to be true :-).

Greg,

Yes it does seem intuitive, but you are missing a fundamental concept here; and that is derivatives may be created far in the future from their raw counterparts.  To put them in the same bucket would create problems with your backups.  Remember from the book that buckets should be additive in terms of backups to both simplify the process and preserve the integrity of the deep archive.  Always place your newly created raws and derivatives in your current working bucket, then use your catalog sets, keywords, etc. to co-locate them as desired.  And remember, 3-2-1 backups applies to your catalog(s) as well.  Hope that helps in addition to John's advice.

Peter/John, sorry to have been away so long.  I've just been spread so thin this past year that I had to get focused and make some sacrifices: social networking and forums I'm afraid had to be two of them.  Thanks though for keeping me on board.  I will try to continue to help as I can find the time.  If you find you need someone more consistently though, I certainly understand.  Hope you two are both doing well.  And Peter, hope to see you at SB3 Chicago.

Best -
Dan

Amada,

I haven't tested this, but I believe what you've stated should be working.  Are you by chance using a newer camera that ACR 5.6 might not know about?  I'm assuming you are working with Raw files and their sidecars, correct?

A minor update to the Wiki on how to migrate over your iView/EM color labels http://wiki.idimager.com/index.php?title=How_to_Migrate_from_iView/Expression_Media_to_IDimager.

Peter,

I'm definitely looking forward to my first trip to Photoshop World (hopefully in the near future).  Glad to hear you've hitched up with them.  It's gotta be allot of fun.

By the way, along with PhotoshopUser magazine, I've also been subscribed to Kelby Training since it started; probably the best investment I've made to date in photography.  When it comes to good all around training, I don't think you can get more bang for your buck.

Ahh, a true Danish Carlsberg!  Nothing like the real thing I'm sure.  Guess I'll just have to settle for second best ;-).  Would love to make it over there one day (with camera in hand of course).

Peter,

Thanks.  I'm continuing to fill in the gaps and re-word it, but I think it's starting to look more complete now.  Initially I was just trying to get something up even if it wasn't fully finished or worded exactly right.  Hopefully it will helps others trying to make the leap.

BTW, I really think the best part is the Carlsberg commercial at the end ;-).

Finally got around to doing this http://forum.idimager.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=13032.  Hope it helps for those making the switch.

George,

Sounds good.  I think 64-bit is essential here in order to utilize more than 4GB of memory, and if you're going to go 64-bit I would only opt for Win7, not Vista.

Mark,

That's actually a good question I had not thought of.  I would hope that most VM's support inter-process communication with their hosts.  If so, I think this would be a very good feature request for IDimager.  I would recommend asking about this at the IDimager forum.

Peter,

Unfortunately I don't have a Mac, and I don't really have the time to test a VM anyway, but hopefully we will continue to get more information.  I would really love to see VMware Fusion 3 running on a newer quad core Nahelem architecture with Windows 7 64-bit as the OS-X VM with at least 8GB of memory.  Hopefully someone will give some info on that soon.  I do think that VM's are coming of age though in the personal desktop market.

Ryan,

Just tested .mov files with Idimager for the first time.  It does appear to allow you to store the metadata and sync that to the .mov file.  Of course you still need QT to play the file.  Idimager launches QT when you double click the thumbnail.

Just wanted to say this thread is continuing to gather more inputs and information over at the IDI forum http://forum.idimager.com/viewtopic.php?p=68305#p68305.

Peter,

Don't really remember what that was.  On this forum I posted first about the restructuring of my catalog and archive per the 2nd edition of the book.  It probably started with this post http://thedambook.com/smf/index.php?topic=4039.msg22631#msg22631.  Later I posted a comparison of Idimager and iView/EM http://thedambook.com/smf/index.php?topic=4202.0.  I probably should update that now that v5 has been released and had a number of updates.  What I have not done though is posted my migration path from iView to Idimager, how I got all my metadata imported, and how I restructured my Catalog Sets from iView into Idimager's new Label Sets among a number of other things.  Don't have allot of time to go back through everything I did, but I do have some notes and forum posts over at Idimager, so I'm going to try to throw something up there and here in the next week or two and go from there.

Dan
