I just ordered Aperture 3 and this will be my first experience with Aperture.
I've looked at a couple forums and there are some expressed concerns, full screen freeze. loading existing files and others.
I'm going to be using a MBP, OS X 10.6.3, 17" AG with an Intel i7. The rest of the MBP is a standard set up. I moved to Apple about a month ago and I'm still in transition.
I have been using Capture One 5 Pro and want to use A3 as a complimentary program.
I have a couple basic questions and any help will be appreciated. I plan on going to the Apple store for one to one help. Before I go to Apple I think that I want to load A3 and and use A3 as my organizing /file program. I'm currently storing my pictures on my MBP HD and using Time Machine as a back up. I'm getting another external HD to use as another back up and as a working HD when I want to use C1 or A3.
What is a way to set up my photos so I can move between C1 and A3?
Is there a good resource to help me understand the use of A3? Does the enclosed user guide provide enough information to do the initial set up?
I have about 1,000 pictures and most of them are in RAW format using an A900. From what I understand it may take some time to load them through A3? I'm hoping to have A3 set up and running before I go to the Apple store for help.
Thanks for any help, Jerry
