I'm debating purchasing Aperture for tethered shooing into a new MacBook Pro. I can't find anything anywhere that tells me if the star ratings from Aperture will transfer to iVew/Expression Media.
In other words, if a client sees images coming up as I shoot & gives them ratings, will those star ratings transfer to EM & Bridge?

Decide for Aperture by all means (YMMV) but be cautious about making tethered shooting a decisive factor. I've found it nice enough for my casual use, though I get camera lockups while files are transferring and transfer rates were much too slow for a serious studio photographer I know. You can't apply image adjustments upon import, unlike Lightroom, where you can do still do tethering via a watched folder and 3rd party control software that's a bit more than Aperture's little utility.

There are ways to get Aperture ratings over to iView/EM but it's more designed around not needing another DAM - you have to duplicate the originals. Unlike Lightroom, it won't write sidecars back next to the master files. There was a plugin called Annoture which could write data back and forth between iView and Aperture 1.56 - don't know if it's being updated.
