Hi board,


When I am looking at my SD card from my Nikon D90 in the Import view of Aperture I have the 'Raw Only' option selected for the RAW+JPEG Pairs setting. This results in .AVI files not showing up in the browser. Meaning that when I believed I was importing all my photos in RAW and my movies, my movies were actually not even considered for importing. I realize (now) that RAW Only quite litteraly means RAW Only, but why do I have to select Both when importing to get my movies? Then I would have to weed out any eventual JPEGs that I might have taken but do not want to import.


I'm simply curious why .AVI are excluded together with .JPEGs. I did not consider this to be intuitive or clear to the user (since the setting is called RAW+JPEG Pairs, not mentioning that it could possibly exclude movies).

    Same here, with Aperture 3.2.2, OS 10.7.2


    That definitely seems to be a bug to me; if either "JPEG only" or "RAW files only" is selected, the File Types selector is ignored, and no audio or video media are available in the import panel.

    Send feedback.  It's been that way since at least 3.0.  It's a design flaw, afaict.
