Time of war : Capture One 5 special offers, LR3 and Aperture are out !!! Wich one to chose.
I was really enthousiast with this Aperture 3 update ; since a while I was reading posts here about this software. As an Apple addict I was near ready to switch from Lightroom to Aperture, but my recent try of Aperture was a really bad experience.
Yes Aperture is a really goog Apple experience and integration, yes beautiful diaporamas and books.
BUT , on my MBP 2,16ghz Intel with 3Go Ram and ATI x1600 128Mo : I experience very bad display bug... As other users report on the net, this mean my video card is not strong enough : pfffff ! (M8 M9 DNG Files)
And every adjustement made took about 5 to 20 seconds to display on screen.
This is quite incredible : this software has been developped by the very Apple Guys , and it's bigger , slower, and more buggy than Lightroom. And I cant read my PhaseOne files (P25+) : so bad !
So I installed a Try version of LR3 : very fluid and speedy adjustments, no video cards problems.
So my choice is made : I'll keep Lightroom for developping and cataloging, and might use Aperture for diaporama and books, but for this iPhoto is still OK !
I suggest Aperture software a big diet to weight less and be more speedy, and maybe a little workshop at ADOBE's developping team for the Apple guys.
And : NO my MBP is not an old computer, it works perfectly with Adobe Productions. I won't go in a 2500€ new power blaster iMac just for using aperture.
So long Aperture, I miss you !
