After finally getting Aperture 3.4 to work (installed new version, etc) it now longer crashes on launch, but every time I attemp to use a Nik plug-in Aperture goes into an endless loop. I have updated and reinstalled all the Nik plug-ins but the problem continues. Any suggestions?

    I do not use the Nik-plug-ins, but have you seen this support article:

    Aperture 3.4 and later: Some third-party plug-ins are no longer compatible

     

    Aperture now requires that the plug-ins are sandboxed, in addition to being 64-bit compatible. Check out the Nik-webpages, if the plug-ins are compatible with Aperture 3.4.

     

    Regards

    Contacted Nik support and they claim full compatibility.

    Can you provide any diagnostic hints? What das the Console Window (launch from Applications > Utilities)  show, when you launch a plug-in?

     

    What does the Activity window show, when Aperture is hanging? (Main menu bar > Window > Show Activity)?

    The Console Window is as follows:

    Nik updated all of their plug-ins last week (shortly after both ML 10.8.2 and Aperture 3.4 were released).  Make sure you've got their latest versions.

    What I see in the Console window "mdworker(1458) deny mach-lookup com.apple.ls.boxd" looks like a problem with the new sandbox design. The plug-in you have been using may not bee compatible with sandboxing.

    I have talked to Nik support and they claim that I have the latest plug-in which should be the case as I downloaded and installed it yesterday. Who knows whether actually tested it with the actual version of Aperture 3.4 that was finally released as it is pretty clear that the updater was not tested by Apple before release.
