    OS X 10.8.4 Aperture 3.4.5 Script: http://crystal-objects.com/blogs/frank/aperture_import_action_scripts091511

     

    The script successfully opens Aperture and creates the year, date, day folder structure you described but after about two minutes running successfully I get that error. I tried rebuilding my library to no avail. It has not yet run to completion successfully.

    I am also having a problem that the script is making the AppleScript Editor hang so I posted a second follow-up question in the AppleScript forum: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5205806 please tell me if my posts are getting off topic and I can open a new thread or move forums.

    Is the error happening with the script that prepares a library and sets up the initial structure RunProjectTime.scrpt or with the script installed as the Import Action Script, ImportProjectTime.scrpt?

    RunProjectTime.scrpt

    Haven't a lot of time to spend on this now.  As the script seems to work for most and given the error you reported I'd suggest trying a library permission repair and library repair.

     

    Start Aperture while holding the option and command keys down. Do the permissions first then close Aperture and restart with the keys held down and do the repair.

     

    Then try the script again.

     

    Sorry I don;t have more for you at this time. Let me know what happens.

     

    regards

    Here is a similar script I wrote a while ago... Rename and File Aperture Projects by Date

    Hi Frank.

    I'm trying everything I can to make your apple script work because I love the idea. Alas, after putting all my (40k) photos into one big project,  repairing and repairing and rebuilding my library as you suggested and running the script, I get this error,

     

    error "Aperture got an error: Can’t get EXIF tag \"ImageDate\" of image version id \"iUmqnr+9Tg2TyAWA5zQOyw\" of library id \"LibraryFolder\"." number -1728 from EXIF tag "ImageDate" of image version id "iUmqnr+9Tg2TyAWA5zQOyw" of library id "LibraryFolder"

     

    When I opened up aperture after this error I noticed a number of projects have been created (I see them when I click the 'projects' icon, but none of them appear anywhere in the sidebar.  FWIW, before repairing my permissions, I was getting the script  to run for a few moments before it would hang.  The result then was a list of folders and new projects in the sidebar, but only a few photos had been transferred.

     

    Being an apple script newbie I don't know where to begin to make this work.  Any help is appreciated!  thank you
