Apple dropping pro-apps?
on Sep 17, 2015 at 6:53:53 pm

Hi cows,

And yet another discussion. Checking the lately revamped apple website: under 'Mac' there used to be hardware and pro-apps. Now only hardware. I love the gear and the stability, really do, but where did the apps go?

Haha, yes, my plan B. And you don't have to read thoroughly for that ;-) Or a future as webdesigner for apple, playing hide and seek all day.

LOL! You want to play "find that important link that concerns you as a valid customer"...try Avids :)

I must have send dozens of complaints for the past 17 years.

Me too. Avid has been in the running for my Worst Site of the Year for many years. I have used it as an example to students on what NOT to do...

Off topic a little, but what program are most migrating from aperture. I am still holding onto, but want a new app that is really good at archiving, which Pixelmator does not appear to have.

There really isn't a program to replace Aperture regarding image manipulation and RAW processing combined with DAM (digital asset mangement, photos). Capture One seems to be the best choice for RAW processing, but their asset management is weak. They acquired what used to be iView Media Pro, which was screwed up and abandoned by Microsoft as Expression. It now works quite well on its own as Media Pro which also will open the old iView catalogs. It is rumored they will be integrating that database engine with Capture One. At that point, if it works, it could be a real contender.

I'm going to keep using Aperture 3.6 on Yosemite while exporting my terabyte of photos to organized folders so I can use the perpetual version of LightRoom 6 in parallel if necessary. Lightroom is a decent RAW converter, but weak on asset management. Anything you have done using adjustments to photos in Aperture will need to be exported as TIFF or if not as important, JPEG. Just bought a new MacBook Pro Retina as Yosemite is the last version of Aperture, 3.6, it will run on. That and my 2013 nMP and 2012 Mac Pro tower. Should keep me going for a few years on my favorite photo program. This, to me, is a bigger screw up from Apple than FCPX, which I am liking. Must have had to do with lower level changes in OSX going forward.
