Thanks Doug for the response.....
Was a little frustrating today.. But I have to say that once I got it down pat it was smooth. No errors at all all day.
Will have to study some more of the Videos.. You all need to make a video for people shooting tethered and show a better workflow.
It program is not intuitive.
For some reason in the beginning I could only make an album and the pictures would not come into the sessions etc.... etc...
Is there anyway to make One session and have many different folders and the pictures get tethered into each older (look) we are doing.. instead having to make a session for every look???
It's not really clear how to make a good workflow through the videos you all have, Which are great and thankful atleast there are those, But another maybe with like a real job work flow might be better for some to grasp a large folder and sub folder job.. Not just Demo folder. Show how people can make a 10-15 folder job.
I do a lot of catalogue and it would nice to have a new folder for each look and be able to name it the Page/Look. and then tether straight into those.
Seems when I made a new folder if I was tethering the images kept going into my other session and not the new one I created???
Not sure if that makes sense, but hopefully yes.
Also could not figure out when I clicked on my first incoming image to white balance it and then when I chose Profile to take on the profile of the previous image, they would not come with the previous adjustment.
Why would you be given the option to make instant back-up when importing from a card But when you are tethering the same option is not available???
Makes no sense at all.
When Tethering is when it is the mst important that you have an instant back-up b/c atleast with a card you have the option to leave the images on the card for safe keeping incase that art director spills his/her coffee on the laptop and you lose all the images.
Your putting all your eggs in one basket so to speak...
I usually shoot to card and do 2 back ups to the NEXTO and have instant to back-ups REALLY fast.
I do have to say I like the program better than 3.7.9 which would often crash, geet stuck or not notice the camera often..
I had Not one crash today and th eimages came in shoothly.. Even in 3.7.9 if I shot to fast the program would die many times.. Not 4.5... It would load them all and I actually hit buffer on the 1DsMII many times and just waited and the images all came in no problem..
I have a paid license for 3.7 and wondering what would make 3.7.9 all of a sudden not notice the 1DsMII... tried everything today and it would not work .. the Capture K was grey out all the time even though the camera showed connected tethered..
Thanks and I would appreciate it if you could let me know some answer to some of these questions..
Though I fear you may be reaching the end of boot camp and heading to war. As I'm sure you've seen from the dozens of posts in the last month we (Capture Integration) want very much to contribute to the community with free advice, but you're getting into some very specific questions which would require illustrations, videos, graphics, and in-depth discussion to tailor solutions to your needs. Especially when talking about workflow the right answer for you is not the same answer as for someone else and it takes really deep knowledge of the software coupled with real world photographic experience to figure it all out. We can do that, but... not for free. Hopefully that makes sense.
We offer small-group online classes (you download example files and then watch our screen and talk to us on a conference call). The intro class does an overview of everything the advanced classes (shaped very strongly by customer requests) cover specific topics in great depth. Methods for easing heavy duty high-volume workflow is my primary concern, so I think you would find that we have an incredible number of tips/tricks/hacks/suggestions that would apply to you that you won't find anywhere else. Should also be a good chance to meet and interact with luminous landscape forum members outside of the text-on-board; we'd definitely be open to a special discount for an all-LL online class. I guarantee you (Snook) would get a lot out of it.
For some of the easier to answer questions..."Is there anyway to make One session and have many different folders and the pictures get tethered into each older (look) we are doing.. instead having to make a session for every look???"
Right click on the capture folder and Show in Library. (if your capture folder is called just "capture folder" you might rename it to something like "look 1" at this point. Drag the current capture folder to the "favorites". Right click on the session folder which is revealed and "create new folder" with a name such as "look 2". Right click on the new folder (e.g. "look 2") and "set as capture folder". Drag this folder to the favorites.
This sounds like a lot of clicking, but should only take a few seconds. This will give you a list of folders containing the raws for each look and 1) you can move images between them quickly 2) you can use Albums to compare images between them 3) you can use move-to to quickly create groups of selects 4) all the look folders reside within your over-arching-shoot session folder for easy archiving.Why would you be given the option to make instant back-up when importing from a card But when you are tethering the same option is not available???
Extremely good reason actually: performance. Especially on a laptop if the hard drive is trying to write streams of data coming from, e.g. P65+ 60 megapixel images coming in at 1 per second then making on the fly duplicates will severely lag performance. The white paper I linked you to is just a generic recommendation. There are many other ways to do it, but the best ways all involve the ability to trigger the update/backup via a button (or type a shortcut, or do a mouse gesture etc) when the photographer is not in the middle of a long string of shots rather than have the backups going 100% of the time. Using this method performance does not suffer and at worst you lose the last minute or two worth of shots.I have a paid license for 3.7 and wondering what would make 3.7.9 all of a sudden not notice the 1DsMII... tried everything today and it would not work .. the Capture K was grey out all the time even though the camera showed connected tethered..
The problem with your Mark II is not normal or common (as far as I have heard or seen). There is something specifically awry with your setup and if you correct it you will be able to tether the mark II with consistency. Probably the most common cause of Canon's not connecting right now is explained in the article linked below and has to do with Aperture (even if you've never installed or used it) and OSX 10.5.2 and later.http://www.captureintegration.com/2008/05/...ng-in-osx-1052/
