How about a plug-in of sorts, haven't looked myself nor have I downloaded Aperture. Considering how many cameras shoot .mov files it certainly would be nice to catalog them and add metadata...etc.MacBook Pro and PowerMac G5's, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Nope, no plug in like that available.
Perhaps with the onset of video DSLRs the next version of Aperture might accommodate that, but we don't know that.Mac Pro 2009+PowerBook G4, Nikon D80, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Lets hope. It would be a very nice addition. I'll see about adding my suggestion through the Apple feedback/suggestion process and keep my eye on this in the future. For now I don't know if I'd make the leap between what I'm using and Aperture w/out this feature that I really need for cataloging purposes.MacBook Pro and PowerMac G5's, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Have a look at either Portfolio
both handle video (& Stills) nicely, however unlike Aperture there is no processing capabilities.Mac Pro Dual 3GHz Quad Core, Mac OS X (10.5.5), http://library.digital-image.com.au
I use Portfolio Server with NetPublish at work. I was hoping to combine asset management with image processing in one package. Aperture does everything I was looking for other than logging .mov files. I could have two separate workflows for stills vs video but was hoping to integrate the two. With so many DSLR cameras capturing clips I'm surprised not to see this included. Oh well, can't have everything you want. I pulled up a sales person w/chat and they suggested I use QT to convert my .mov into a file that Aperture supported... what a .tiff? I don't think the support person got what I was asking for.
Is there a method by with to recommend new features?MacBook Pro and PowerMac G5's, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Sure is a feedback method, I could have given you the Aperture link, but I like this one as all the apps are listed.
