Aperture 3.1.3 Very slow importing raw files please help

Pro Photographer. I have a Mac Pro Quad core 1 yr old with 12GB Ram. I import via 2 Firewire 800 card readers - A Lexar & a UDMR Reader.Only using them singly. System has 4 1TB hard drives 1. Applications, 2. Aperture Library, 3. Aperture Vault, 4 Time Machine
On a photo shoot, first CF card may download and complete in less than a minute but the next card with a similar number ofimages may take 10 minutes.
Sometimes if I swap card readers, this can speed up download but then everything slowly grinds to a halt.
I have closed down all other programmes, switched off Faces and Enable Gestures - switched off  Look up places.
Situation driving me nuts as we shoot and view images with customers immediately after the session and download time effecting the amount of time we have to do this. Nothing seems logical as such a high spec machine should theoretically fly through this.

• If you are uploading directly into Aperture, don't. Instead first copy to a folder on the hard drive.
• Capture RAW+JPEG and tell Aperture to use the camera JPEGs for Previews.

    Have you upgraded your OS ans all your Apps to the latest Versions and also rebooted the system?
    Turn on the Activity Viewer (Windows ->Show Activity) while importing, to see how Aperture is spending its time.
    Also launch some tools from the Application -> Utilities folder:
    launch the Console window, to check for diagnostics /error messages
    launch the Activity Viewer, to see how much RAM and CPU time Aperture and other processes are using.
    How much space is free on your system drive? And on the drive you are importing to?
    If you find in the Activity Viewer, that Aperture is slow, but de facto using not much CPU time, then the problem may be a corrupted Aperture Library or corrupted preference files.
    Try to import into a new, empty Aperture library and see if the problem persists.
    If you have no problems with a new Library, try the Aperture 3: Troubleshooting Basics:
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3805
    Start with repairing permissions and repairing the library.
    If none of the measures outlined there, or you need further help, please report back.

  • Aperture 3.3.2 no longer imports raw files from OM-D E-M5?

    I just upgraded to 3.3.2 and when I try to import raw (ORF) files from my OM-D E-M5, I get a pop-up listing each of the files as having failed to import. In addition, in the Import window I am not seeing thumbnails of each file -- just a generic "ORF" Icon.
    Aperture seems to have forgotten how to deal with these files.
    Anyone seen this and have a suggestion on how to fix? Or has anyone been able to successfully import these files into 3.3.2?
    I am running Mac OS 10.7.4 on a MBP.

    Check the version of the Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update that is installed. Your camera should be supported by update 3.13: The version of the raw support is shown in the About panel: from the main menu bar:
         Aperture > About Aperture
    Supported by Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 3.13
    Canon EOS-1D X
    Nikon D800E
    Nikon D3200
    Olympus OM-D E-M5
    Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GF5
    Sony Alpha SLT-A57
    Download the latest from here:
    Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 3.14
    If you have the latest raw support installed, but Aperture does not recognize the format, try to register the raw support for your camera with the launch services db, see this post by Alan Roseman:
    Re: Aperture 3 preview of raw file greenish
    But also read the following post, that explain how this is supposed to work and to correct the typo in the command
    In short: Quit Aperture, open the terminal, paste the  follwing text in (all in one single line) and hit return; then reboot the system.
    /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchSe rvices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -R /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Library

    Hi,
    the plan isn't showing any problem (the cost isn't high) so it's not possible to use it to troublehshoot the query. Please provide more information: 4-digit Oracle version, and depending on the version, either SQL real-time monitor report or dbms_xplan output with rowsource stats (option "iostats last" after running your sql with ALTER SESSION SET STATISTICS_LEVEL = ALL).
    Also, when reporting a performance problem it would be wise to avoid expressions like "very, very slow" replacing them with something more useful like "my query is taking 2.5 hours to retrieve 30k rows".
    Best regards,
    Nikolay

  • New mac pro slow converting raw files any help?

    hallo everybody,
    can someone help?
    my new mac pro 3.7 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon E5 / 32 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 is converting raw files in camera raw really too slowly, about twice the time took with an iMac 2,7 GHz.
    I tryed all graphic processor options on PS preferences.
    I also ran mac check up utility and hardware seems ok.

    The normal suspect would be that you haven't rendered out the previews, but the low cpu value would indicate that the problem actually lies elsewhere. Even so, it would do no harm to run the Render Standard-sized preview command (Library module View menu)
    Next thought is the operating mode. Lightroom 2.x can run as either a 32-bit or 64-bit application. With the amount of ram you have installed (very low for a box with this sort of power) you might find 32-bit is the best choice. You can change the mode by clicking on the Lightroom application icon then use the Get Info command (Cmd+I) to open the info panel
    Tip: you would be well advised to increase your installed ram. Lr likes plenty of ram, especially in 64-bit mode. A good starting point would be 6GB or even 8GB

  • Macbook Pro VERY SLOW since mavericks! Please Help!

    My Macbook pro is a late 2012 model, 2.3GHz Intel Core i7 with 4GB ram
    Ever since upgrading to mavericks, it has slowed down immensely! It was never this slow or buggy with Mountain lion
    It takes a good 2 minutes to load mail, finder is very buggy - it will take a good minute to load a photo - which was not normal
    I also run Adobe CC design software - and it is very very slow
    Safari is extremely slow and buggy, and sometimes shows screens as below:
    I was going to upgrade to 2x8GB ram which will be 16GB of ram - will this solve the problem?
    Should i upgrade to yosemite? will these problems be fixed please?
    I have tried asking the Apple Outlet here in Malta but they are of no help at all, don't know where else to ask!

  • Firewall/VPN Model-SG300 Cyberguard after configuration internet working very slow....please help me...

    HI FRIENDS,
    i have one firewall model number sg300 i configured each and everything

    my lease ling directly in this device.
    please help me....
    Thanks,

    Hi Madhukar,
    It seems that it is not a hyper-v issue .
    For troubleshooting this please use your computer to access internet directly (without firewall ).
    If it works well , you may go over the configuration of the firewall .
    Also you can contact the hardware vendor .

  • Aperture 2.1.2 can't reconnect all files, please help!

    I accidentally duplicated all of my master so in all folders I have image001.cr2 and image001 (1).cr2.
    The library is now referenced at the duplicate files, those ending with (1).cr2.
    I then deleted all duplicate and consequently all the images in aperture show that little yellow triangle indicating that images are missing.
    So I go to File->manage referenced files but even if I hit the button "reconnect all" it just reconnect one image at a time.
    I don't really know how to fix this, tried many time a google search with no success!
    Any help on this weird issue would be greatly appreciated!

    I have the same problem!

  • Trouble importing Calendar file please help!!!

    Hello everyone
    I m trying to download one of my soccer teams schedules to my Schedule on my nokia n97 via Nokia PcSuite. I can only download the schedule from a website in CSV format. Nokia pc suite won't allow me to add the CSV format. Does anybody have any help they can give me so I can import this file. I can currently open the file in Excell obviously. Thank you ahead of time, this has stressed me out I've tried alot of different things!

    You can't import calendar items as far as I know
    Better off putting your calendar in Outlook and then using Sync or emoze to sync them up

  • G580 Very slow, and mouse problems, please help

    I purchased a brand new G580 approx 2 weeks ago. 
    It has 4GB of memory compared to my old lenovo which had 2GB.  This new one runs at half the speed of my old one and has nothing on it (i.e pictures, music, vids etc) 
    If i open a programme to do something and then open another, it cannot cope with it and will take forever to do anything on the 2nd programme when it eventually opens. 
    also the mouse wanders! I dont have to be touching it or doing anything near it, it just wanders across the screen which is getting very annoying. 
    Please could somebody help me? 

    Hi kiri_tc,
    Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
    I’m sorry to hear that your G580 Laptop is not performing as expected and the cursor is moving erratic, re-installing the Touchpad driver should resolve this issue and let me know the OS (Operating System) that is installed in the computer and the country where the computer was purchased, also the Type of G580 for providing the steps to resolve performance issue and exact touchpad driver link. Below is the link to locate the model number and Type of the computer which is mentioned on the sticker at the base of the Laptop.
    How to find the Serial Number (S/N) and Type of your computer
    Hope to hear back soon

  • Aperture 3.5 running Very Slow

    Good Evening
    Aperture is now running very slow and get the spinning wheel alot, even worse whe trying to open NIK add ons, didn't get this before the upgrade, anyone else experiancing this ? also unable to import an old aperture Libary into 3.5, i get the message that it was created with an older version !
        Cheers

    Same problem.
    Library access is very slow.
    I have restored my library after crash and now i have 250.000 previews to recreate (very big library : 2To but no problem before aperture 3.5) it's very long, about 20.000 previews by day.

  • I am experiencing very slow import and backing up issues.

    I am experiencing very slow import and backing up catalog on exiting Lightroom. This is a very recent issue. I use RAW files.

    The type of files you are importing will have an effect on the speed of the import process. Larger files, like raw sensor files, are normally much larger than JPG files.
    But if this is something new, the slowness, and you are using the same camera with the same size files as previously then it's not just the file size.
    What type of computer and what operating system are you using.

  • I can no longer import raw files from my Panasonic Lumix LX5 into Aperture 3.3.2 - raw files from my other Canon cameras are fine. Am still running Lion - NOT Mountain Lion. Tried all available software updates - no joy. Any ideas please?

    I can no longer import raw files from my Panasonic Lumix LX5 into Aperture 3.3.2 - raw files from my other Canon cameras are fine. Am still running Lion (10.7.4) - NOT Mountain Lion. Tried all available software updates - all up to date apparently but still no joy. OS X Lion shows the LX5 as a supported file format. I dont want to have to upgrade to Mountain Lion just to see if this solves the problem. Any ideas please.

    Since when did this happen? Directly after you upgraded to Aperture 3.3.2?
    If it happened directly after the upgrade the problem may be, that the raw support for your camera got lost. For some posters it helped to register the raw support again, see this post by Alan Roseman:
    Aperture 3 preview of raw file greenish
    If this does not help, you may need to reinstall Lion to bring back the raw support.
    But if the problem occured independent of a new installation, ypu may have a problem with your camera or the card you are using. Have you tried to use a different card or to reformat the card in the camera?

  • Aperture 3.0 not importing RAW files from Canon T1i

    I have recently upgraded to Aperture 3.0. I shoot with Canon T1i in RAW+JPG file size. When importing files from Canon T1i for the first time to Aperture 3.0, I found that all files imported as jpg not RAW. How do I get the RAW files? Help!!!
    Anjali

    It does support Canon T1i RAW mode. In the "Import Settings", there's a section for "RAW+JPEG Pairs". If you don't see this, click the "Import Settings" pulldown menu and select it.
    In the "RAW+JPEG Pairs" section, there's a pulldown menu to allow you to select "Both (RAW as Master)"
    It'll use the JPEG as the "Preview" image, but it will use the RAW as the master for all adjustments you want to perform.
    Prior to the import, you should see both the JPEG and RAW (.CR2) files. AFTER the import, you should only see the RAW in your project (it has the JPEG... but it wont normally display it because it knows the RAW is the master.) After the import, select any photo in your project, then click the "metadata" tab on the left. At the top it should give you the camera, lens, exposure info, etc. and you should see the "RAW" icon.
