Capture One Pro's Aperture importer is probably the best in the industry. Learn exactly what does — and doesn't — transfer over.

In this session, we look at an Aperture library with just about everything in it that can be, then open that into Capture One Pro and see what made it, and what didn't. There are a few surprises, but overall this is a very good experience. Of course it's not as easy as just taking any ol' Aperture library and opening it up. You'll want to do a little clean-up, a little prep, and be very careful of what you do with your Aperture library once you're done!

Watch it now…

One thing that you didn’t try was deleting the Aperture Library and seeing if Capture kept the file.  I imagine it wouldn’t but curious to know!

As always great video.

Hm, if the images were referenced to start then of course deleting the library wouldn't matter. I did this so long ago now though I don't even recall how that part worked. But I think the general wisdom is it's best to be working from a referenced library for this so there's no possibility of deleting or corruption in the Aperture library affecting the images that Capture One is referencing.

How about if you…

  1. use Aperture Exporter to export TIFs of your 4 and 5 stars
  2. Reimport those back into Aperture and give them a unique keyword
  3. Import Aperture library into Capture One
  4. Compare your 4 and 5 star images that “translated” over to those TIFs. No rush… but as you come across them, compare and decide if it's worth keeping the TIF or not.

What do you think?

Having watched this demo, and the TWiP Apps episode on Aperture Exporter (AE), I’m unsure which route to go down for getting my 55,000 image Aperture Library across to Capture One. It would seem that the fundamental choice is between getting AE to export ‘exact copies’ of my Aperture Edits, but sacrificing disk space for the exported (edited) versions and having the Folder/Project/Album elements reproduced in Folder format rather than in C1’s User Collections.

I mostly used Aperture as a DAM tool, so only 10% of my images have edits.

I hardcoded GPS tags into my images using Houdageo, so I don’t need AE’s Places feature.

I might use AE to export TIFF files of my 4 and 5 star files and rely on C1 to do the rest…
