I'm shooting my school's prom soon - because it's more fun to shoot it than dance. (And for the adults who don't know what teenage dancing has degenerated into lately, consider yourselves lucky.)
Anyway, I was wondering if it would be possible to use Aperture 3 to do a live slideshow during the event. I would use a Canon WFT and probably just the hot folder script to get everything into Aperture. Will a slideshow that's playing using the “Play Slideshow” setting (from the AP2 days) grab new files as they're imported into a new project? If so, would this even be a good idea? IIRC, Aperture still needs to generate previews for those slideshows, and given that I'd be shooting with either a 7D or 1D (rented of course!), and I have a 13” MBP, that might not be the best idea speed wise. (Though I could also shoot RAW+S-Jpeg and that probably wouldn't be too bad.)
So, am I over extending Aperture's capabilities? Is there a simple program that would work well for what I'd like to do. (Mostly this is a just a fun thing to add to the dance, and an excuse to borrow a couple things for a bit, but it's something I'd like to be able to do in the future too.) Thanks for the advice!
