I was on OS X Lion and all worked perfectly, but when I've installed Mountaion lion and Aperture 3.3.2... It can't import any types of video files to Aperture library now.


When I go to File -> Import -> Files ... it shows me an empty folder (if there is video only) or photos:




When I drag and drop any video file to Aperture icon, it says:




So, if I import video file to iPhoto library and then open it in Aperture, it can't play video:





I've searched about this problem, but I couldn't find anything. I don't know where's my mistake. Maybe Aperture on Mountain Lion has bug?

Hallo in2om,


yesterday my problem was solved.

First I reinstalled (and updated) Aperture again, but this did not help.


Then I started from the recovery partition (cmd-r during start) and reinstalled Mountain Lion. No, you won't loose anything (but have a backup anyway!!). I did not have the Golden Master (as TheWrongStuff had), but the "normal" release fom the AppStore. But reinstallation helped anyway!

Now I am able to import again, and play my "old" movies, as it used to be!


Anyway, Apple is interested in my Aperture Library, I will send it to them on Monday. If they find out anything else, I will report here.


Just try to reinstall Mountain Lion, you can't do anything wrong doing this, I hope it works for you, too.


Have a nice weekend!

I have installed and run a host of applications and have not been able to break Aperture again.

The only apps I haven't tested from other posts are Chrome, AppCleaner and PS Elements.


I have resolved the issue for myself following the steps in my earlier post.

I will be sure to post the cause back if it breaks again but for now I'm sorted.


Note - this was a clean build - no import tools were used and all prefs were set up again from scratch.


Time for a fresh start .

When you reinstall you don't lose anything. Just reinstall over the existing install. It takes a short period of time and your machine will be the same way it was before, except Aperture is fixed.
