Just curious as to how the Lightroom beta stacks up against iView's MediaPro DAM solution.
Is it in the realm of possibility that Lightroom could supplant ivmp as the 800 lb gorilla of the DAM world?
Should I wait for a Lightroom beta on Windoze or bite the bullet and buy ivmp now?
Any/all insights much appreciated. Thanks!
Are you a pro with many thousands of images? Do you store and need to access many different types of images? IVMP is a very powerful app, but perhaps beyond the needs of many photographers.
Lightroom will do the stuff Bridge does now for photographers, plus most of your image editing.
I would do what you are doing now - ask around, plus examine your needs carefully. IVMP is a very good app, but expensive and it may be overkill.
Just found this from a post Michael made on another thread:
"And when you then add printing capability with the power of a RIP (in terms of layout), a slide show, keywording, cataloging, archiving etc. By the time it comes out as a shipping product this fall Lightroom will provide in one program the most important features of Photo Mechanic for file ingesting, Camera Raw for raw processing, Iview Media Pro for cataloging, the ability to apply raw control equivalents to non-raw files, superior printing and on and on and.... all in one program."
