In evaluating the usability for me between capture 1 and aperture a few questions have come up.
I am not bothered about DAM really as I use iview for that. Whilst overall aperture is quicker to use in terms of speed C1 seems more like a long term product.
However a few questions have cropped up. All on MAC.
Can iptc data such as keywords etc be added on import (if not I can do it initially with photomechanic but...)The only DAM bit that interested me for my raw processing programme.
Is their a keyboard shortcut for full screen mode? (remember on mac)
Is their a way to modify the keyboard shortcuts (i.e from cntrl+command+0 to lets say Z for full zoom)
Can the browser be set to move in one long film strip along the base of the monitor, as it can vertically?
When two or more images are selected in the browser they of course show up in the viewer, but when I zoom them using the shortcut only one zooms at a time, I then need to do the other manually also. Can this be set so all zoom together which make sense as if zooming it is usually to compare two or more images? (as in iview)
Also when I then select the move tool only one moves at a time unless I also press the shift key at the same time, can this be set to automatically move all images? (again as in iview)
If I can sort these user friendly issues out then apart from the slight speed issues, which I'm sure a RAM bump will sort out, C1 will will do all that aperture can for my needs but with more frequent updates, camera support, etc.
