Aperture video missing red channel on playback

Aperture video missing red channel on playback.  Also some pictures appear to have missing pixels.
Video played with Quicktime doesnt have the missing red channel.
When trying to playback video,in aperture, it plays with missing frames, missing pixels and the crashes entire computer. My computer is a Mac Pro desktop with 24 gb memory with 3.33 ghz 6-core processor running Version 10.9.2 and Aperture 3.5.1
Any suggestions on my problem?

Never had anything before crash the whole system since OS8 or so.
Back up your system, without deleting older backups - just in case; that looks like a possible system trouble.
Also they some have been in Aperture for a while and they used to be OK.
Do the videos play in QuickTime Player or any other software, if you export or reveal the originals?
Can you play your videos, when signed into another user account?

  • 2 layers of Video, one showing just Red Channel

    Hi All
    I've got 2 layers of video. From one layer, I'd like to use just the Red Channel. On the layer below, I'd like to use just the G-B channels. The result being a composite of both layers.
    I thought I'd be able to use the Arithmetic control to knock out the channels and use ADD as the operator for the top later but it doesn't seem to be doing anything - I still see the RGB image on the top layer despite the values changed by Arithmetic.
    What am I missing?

     good , glad my tip have been helpful.

  • Major differences between ACR and Aperture in red channel

    I did some printing a couple of days ago and the result was really not acceptable. At first we thought it was the printer and then the process of saving the files from tiff mac to tiff pc. After that we hade a look at the channels and the findings explained exactly why we got the result. After that I decided to compare ACR with Aperture and here are the differences in the Red channel. Camera is Canon EOS 350D, ISO 200. The image is 25% zoom. I don't know if it is possible to post images but a link is perhaps good enough.
    Do you have any ideas why Aperture gives me this result? If this is what I can expect from Aperture I'm afraid I'll have to use another raw converter for printing and that is a shame. The Image look fine in RGB but Red is destroyed and the printer in this case uses the red channel I'm told.
    kind regards,

    Obviously that would be one way of doing it but
    digging after every file in the aperture lib, opening
    them in ACR, saving as tiff 16, importing to aperture
    is a to painful process.
    If you have to do it for every image it would be annoying, but if you don't often have blown out color channels it would not be too bad...
    I actually use Aperture myself by importing TIFFs because my camera is not supported in Aperture directly.
    As you pointed out the dark
    area is in fact not dark grey but black. No
    information there what so ever. Is this a common
    problem with aperture? Has anyone else experienced
    this or is this image an extreme example?
    I'm not sure why that would be, that's a different issue. I have not seen anything like that as Aperture seems to recover as much detail as any other converter.
    Are you sure there is no detail there, if you raise exposure some? ACR is set by default to automatically change adjustments, you may want to try auto-level or something like it.
    Is this really a problem with Core Images or is it an
    Aperture problem? Correct me if I'm wrong but
    aperture uses the same RAW converter as iPhoto does,
    in other words Core Images framework? I see why Apple
    want Aperture, iPhoto and other to use their raw
    converter that's built into the operating system but
    when the performance is lacking perhaps the Aperture
    team should consider to build one for them selves?
    You are thinking about it backwards. What Apple is doing is to spend resources producing a pro level converter, which then every part of the system (including iPhoto) can use. If Aperture were going to build thier own RAW processor then why would you not want iPhoto to be able to use it as well?
    And in fact that's pretty much what happened, before Aperture came out OS X RAW conversion was pretty mediocre. But after Aperture Apple spent a lot of resources improving RAW conversion and it's far better now - whcih also benefits iPhoto.
    Is there any form of modified RAW converter for OS X
    I could use to replace the one shipping default? I
    would do anything in order to keep using aperture for
    prints also.
    Sorry, there's no way to swap out the OS decoder.

  • Video thumbnails scrambled, won't playback (v3.4.3)

    My video thumbnails in Aperture (version 3.4.3) are scrambled. Sometimes I can see part of a reference thumbnail frame (often in monochrome or with a single color overlay, like green), sometimes it's just all snow.
    1) I just restored my mac mini from a time machine backup.
    2) I also just imported an iPhoto library
    If I browse to a pre-existing (before Time Machine restore) Aperture project, the correct thumbnail appears briefly before changing to the scrambled version.
    When I select the video for playback all I get is a blank Viewer window (not video content, no controls, no playback).
    If I browse to the source file via finder the video thumbnail displays and the video plays back correctly.
    I have tried:
    1) verifying and repairing disk permissions
    2) repairing Aperture permissions
    3) repairing the Aperture database
    4) rebuilding the Aperture database
    5) regenerating thumbnails (select video Photos->Regenerate Thumbnails) (thumbnail changes, still scrambled)
    I don't use Aperture often so I'm not 100% sure when this started, but it seems to be after this current restore as supported by the brief correct appearance of old video thumbnails before they update to the scrambled version.
    OS X 10.8.2
    Aperture 3.4.3
    Example of affected video:
    QuickTime movie
    Duration: 00:11
    Capture Source: iPhone 3GS

    I suggest to check the video codecs you have installled; if you use Perian or have a flip-camera, you may have an incompatible video codec installed, see: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4155
    Why was a TimeMachine restore necessary? And did you use any helper/uninstaller/cleaner utilities, before you made the backup or after restoring? Sometimes this kind of helpers remove too much. I  this case you may need to reinstall Mt. Lion to restore missing system components, that are not included in your TimeMachine backup.
    Have a look at this thread Re: Import video to Aperture library on Mountain Lion,
    and also at the post: Re: Import video to Aperture library on Mountain Lion in the same thread.
    To reinstall from the "Recovery partition" see Linc Davis's post here: Re: Garageband doesn't open in Mac Mini mid 2011

  • Macbook - tv, audio & video on separate channels?!

    so i'm on a quest to watch movies that are stored on my macbook's hard drive on my 36" insignia hdtv.
    i have separate connections for the video and audio. the video is connected through hdmi, and the audio cord connects my headphone jack to a red/white thing on the tv. i also have a dvd player, videogames, etc plugged into the tv. when i use a component (like the dvd player or macbook) i have to select an individual input (such as hdmi1, hdmi2, component1, etc).
    the issue? when streaming the movie on the macbook, the video shows on input "hdmi2" with no sound, and the sound can be heard on "component2" with a black screen. i can only select one input at a time.
    what am i missing? how can i use see both audio & video on one channel if they are in separate inputs??

    My mistake about my TV, it only has TOS link output. But I do have 2 DVRs, the TV, and a DVD+R connected to a RS passive 4-way selector and fed into a DVD speaker system for better sound when I feel like it. TOS link is an fiber-optic cable with small connectors. I have not tested my MacBook but supposedly the sound jack is also the optical output jack and there a reports of red glows from it. Normally TOS links screw on to something with the fiber in a metal cylinder that could go into the jack. Probably something in the manual--yes, it's labeled "Headphone out/optical digital audio out port" on pp. 22-23 but has no real info. I don't have/want any videos to test the Book output, today.

  • IPhoto 9.5 sharpening drastically affects red channel

    I have the weirdest bug: opening a photo into the "edit" window recalculates the edits and ties the "sharpening slider" to the photo's "red channel." There are no visible slider changes, but a beautifully edited photo is suddenly converted to peaked reds. This renders the sharpening slider and the editing panel more than useless – they damage the photo. I don't even have to enter the adjustement pane for the change to occur. Command + E is sufficient to recalculate, bringing my work to a standstill.
    Everything since the last update has been working properly, at least until the latest "Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update 5.01." I use a Sony NEX but only save JPEG and never RAW. The Sony Alpha NEX-5T is included in the update, but I'm shooting with a Sony NEX-5, which is an earlier generation model.
    I've also confirmed the "sharpening/red channel" bug is present in Aperture v3.5 – RAW 5.01 – Build 718.1, and RAW Support 5010 – Build 91.8.
    Is there a way to revert to the previous RAW build? Is there a patch? Am I just forced to wait on Apple?

    Another example:
    My original edit (sadly the thumb is all that's left, but you can see the color):
    The initial red profile error, initiated upon viewing:
    Current incorrect profile translation in the edit pane (you can see from the edits this is incorrect):

  • Red channel quirk

    The backstory is that I had a power supply problem to a MBP as I was working on images in Aperture with an external hard drive. Apparently, the power supply to the external hard drive caused an import problem with some images; Aperture crashed; etc. I received new power supplies, did all three levels of repair (Command Option and launch Aperture), removed the dodgy import images and re-imported the files.
    The problem is that now these images 'drop' the red channel when in full screen mode and then that reprocesses the preview without the red channel as well. The image info is there; you can see it in the curves, adjust the curves by the usual methods, etc., but the images display without red. It is really peculiar and must be a problem with Aperture 3 reading and processing the channel for display. I did a test printout into a PDF file and the problem shows up in the output as well.
    Not good!

    Problem solved...sort of.
    When I imported these images, the adjustment window claims that the shots were imported with an older version of the RAW decoder. That's wrong; these are fresh images newly imported into Aperture 3. Anyway, for a few images, I did an individual 'reprocess' command in the adjustment window. Usually, that did not seem to do anything and the warning remained.
    Just this afternoon, I updated to A3.0.1 and the Pro kit and re-started Aperture. The warning was there, however I did a reprocess Raw command on the selected images and that got me back to 'normal'. Very, very odd.

  • Blue hue in screen (no red channel)

    I recently aquited a Powerbook G3 500(pismo). The screen has a blue tint in it, as if te red channel is not working. Yesterday I restarted the machine and there was some red showing, but not at very good quality.
    I am guessing it is the video card.
    Any help? Thanks.

    The pinkish/reddish color is usually caused by a failing fluorescent backlight. But also in the equation is the inverter that powers the backlight and I believe it will just cause a dim display. However, if the display is new, then the inverter may be the problem.
    The inverter converts low-voltage DC to high-voltage AC to power the fluorescent backlight. These inverters are inexpensive and easy to replace. If your previous display appeared to have normal brightness, then the backlight is probably at fault.
    It sounds as though you bought a used display. This problem usually begins to manifest itself with a pinkish/reddish cast in the lower left corner of the LCD and which disappears as the display warms up. However, over time it will progressively get worse and you will eventually end up with a display that remains totally pink and quite unattractive.
    If interested, this is how you replace the inverter:
    You should be able to lift out the clutch cover after removing the keyboard and heat shield. Here is a picture of the inverter:
    IFixIt also sells used parts including the inverter. There was a good article regarding the Pismo display but I have been unable to access it:
    Sorry I cannot be definitive as to whether you have an inverter or bulb problem.

  • Camera Raw missing color channel

    I am using PSE9 for images from my Pentax K5. All updates have been installed.
    The raw files (PEF) have always worked in Camera Raw.
    Today however, I have opened some raw files and found that ACR is not showing the red channel in any images. The JPEG thumbnails in camera are displaying correctly.
    I have also opened the same files with Pentax Digital Camera Utility 4.40 and it displays the images correctly. This confirms the data has been recorded - thank goodness it is not a capture problem.
    Any suggestions and solutions as to what has happened to Camera Raw?
    Thanks to all who consider my problem.

    I have been using a Pantone Huey colorimeter for many years now with great effect.
    Unfortunately, this appears to be the source of my problems although I'm not sure why it would suddenly fail.
    When I factory reset the Huey, i.e. there is no calibrated monitor profile, it displays all images accurately. As soon as I calibrate the monitor, the colors display incorrectly again.
    The latest version of the Huey software was made back in the days of Windows XP. Therefore, there is no guarantee it will work with Windows 7 although it has been doing so for some time.
    It may be time to replace it with a Colormunki or Spyder4.
    If I go ahead, I'll post the outcome.

  • Aperture Video Import Problem - from Lumix GH4: Imported clips have their dates changed to the import date.  The files show up on the hard drive but many are not showing up in Aperture.

    Aperture Video Import Problem - from Lumix GH4: Imported clips have their dates changed to the import date.  The files show up on the hard drive with import date not created date, but many of these same files are not showing up in Aperture. Sometimes the clips actually show up with the current import but take on the video information from a previously imported file.

    It was suggested I move this question to IPhoto or IMovie which I did. 
    Well moving to a different discussion group did not provide an answer to this question either. But what I finally did was import one batch of photos and videos into IPhoto for a given day at a time. Working with these I could change the date and times in order to get them in the original sequench taken. Then I would create an album with that batch. These would all be on the same day (IMove was closed for this phase). Then I would open IMovie, generate the thumbnails for that album, and select the album I had created. This was necessary because the importing process in IPhoto was using incorrect dates for my video so it was a real struggle finding them in IMove until I developed this approach.
    I believe that this whole process was so screwy because I was importing from an external hard drive not a camera. I had these photos on a PC and did not have the original cameras to use to import directly which I am fairly sure would have made this easier!

  • Red channel seems very low resolution

    Iwth a HVX200 and P2 workflow, I have noticed in the past that in Final Cut the images look good, but if you export them, the red channel can have artifacts, it looks like a 1/8th of the resolution. This could do with the channel smoothing.. I dunno.
    However, I had a work around (a bit of a chicken dance: opening the original files in quicktime, unchecking then rechecking the 'hi-quality' mode, then saving them as uncompressed.. THEN outputting them as frames.)
    However, with all the newest updates to the P2 importer, I am now noticing that the problem has creeped into Final Cut itself, and there is no way to work around it.
    I have older footage that looks great, if I now go and re-shoot, it looks bad, really bad.
    What is going on ?
    Has anyone else had this problem.
    I work in a large facility, and we do a lot of greenscreen and this is a real problem.
    thanks in advance,
    cris blyth

    like this?
    (200% zoom)
    The little red blocks around the arms.It has something to do with over saturation of the red channel causing problems with color sampling and compression. Fortunately, it goes away once it hits a TV monitor. I'm a little bit confused as well, but I do know what your talking about.

  • IPhoto (11) and Aperture videos not showing up in iMovie

    None of the iPhoto (11) and Aperture videos are showing up in iMovie.  I've tried to rebuild the thumbnails - no dice.  I've tried removing the com.apple.iMovie* files from the preferences in my Library and restarting - no dice.  Any other suggestions?  Do I have to somehow export or share these files with iMovie?

  • Not all of my Aperture videos are available in iMovie. What's the fix?

    I'm using iMovie and Aperture. I'd like to consolidate all of my videos in iMovie, but for some reason, not all of my Aperture videos appear in iMovie.
    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    You shouldn't have to change your iTunes account to not have to purchase it twice.  If your devices are using different iTunes IDs, just purchase it on one device, then import it to your iTunes library by connecting the device to your computer, opening iTunes and going to File>Devices>Transfer Purchases.  Once in iTunes, you should be able to sync it to your other device (assuming both devices are syncing with the same iTunes library).  (And even if they were syncing with separate libraries, you could use Home Sharing to copy the app from one library to the other.)
    Or, am I missunderstanding something?

  • Using InDesign CS5.5 and am missing SMD Channels Model.sdk.IndesignPlugin

    I am a designer and I am proofing the magazine a printer sent back to me and I can't open his file because it says I am missing SMD Channels Model.sdk.IndesignPlugin and strongly advises me not to open it.
    Is there a way to download this plugin or have the printer send an IDML file instead?

    Ask in the ID forum. On a general note, though, warnings about missing plug-ins mean that the file was created and saved in a newer version of the program and thus cannot be opened. You will have to work out that part or indeed use IDML.
