Yes, sessions are like they were in v6. But the addition of Collections I thought was great....As I was just making a mess of all my client folders.
If I accessed a folder as I would in the Browser like in Windows Explorer, it would leave the CaptureOne and Proxy and settings folder and the mess. WHY when I am simply looking for the right files for C1, not commiting to work on the file or folder.
So I thought Catalogs was great. Except I can't get it to be "Valid". When I start up and try to work in catalog, it errors out.
_ Sentence EDITED:I had stated Sessions by mistake. (just shows how confusing this is. Keep in mind C1 is not the only program that photogs work with)
I went along the video step by step, and at the one point in the "Naming tool, video says you can rename, but C1v7 says "Naming is disabled when storing files in Current Location" . (?)
... Well, this is also the video's example. So I would say my first point of the problem is there.
Just for informations sake on my folders setup:
I have external server with a number of folders by client names. for example: CocaCola/Raw/Processed/Finals/Jpeg_email, etc (although I have other folders such as "Print" within the "Finals" folder. Since each software has a different way of making folders, the best way is to take command and structure the folders in a system that woirks for you. This method is free from all complications of changing computers, swapping drives, and really a logical method when working with clients. (Inspired from reading The DAM book).
I mention the above, as the error leads me to think it is having issues reading a external server drive on that command, as all the images populate in the Import Images window, but it can't make the file structure to continue. The images are ones I just tehter/captured into the server.
Well here we are, top of the morning, same stuck problem. No C1v7 catalog. Back to crummy, yet faithful Sessions!
Anyone?, Doug? :-)
