C1 import
« on: December 04, 2017, 12:10:23 PM »

I have a question/ problem regarding importing pictures in the new C1 11.
My photos are organized chronologically, I just copy the camera folder. I use to than just import and select the folder above in the tree-hierarchy.
While C1 9 and 10 "found" and imported the new pictures quickly, in 11 the program seems to go through the entire catalog counting all the (10.000+) pictures there anytime I import, which takes about 10-15 minutes or so.
Anyone else seen that? Or did I accidentally  messed up something, somewhere?

Have you got exclude duplicates box ticked (may have a different name but same meaning, I am away from my computer and can't check)? This can slow things down particularly if you use Microsoft OneDrive for storage.

No, that's disabled ... already.
(When I enable this, things get even slower, far beyond amounts of time I like to wait (hours?), so you're right, in a way ...)

Can you raise a support case please. It's at the bottom of this page https://www.phaseone.com/en/SupportMain.aspx
I had this problem while beta testing 11.

Why are you pointing the import to the parent directory instead of to the actual directory you're importing?

I import to several locations/ subfolders frequently and don't think it's particular practical to import each folder _manually_ it's a computer/ software, it's supposed to make work easier, isn't it?! Also that worked fine that way up to the last C1 v10 version ... I got this workflow long time.

Sorry I think my question was a bit ambiguous. What were the actual import folder and output folder in your case?

No problem, it's just support suggested the same and I had to explain, why I don't want to go through the import procedure for 5 or even 10 times depending on what I did.

I copy subfolders to that folder from the camera/cards and let the import keep the files at their actual location than. I consider changing my workflow and let C1 copy the files, or something, as in the meantime it takes about an hour in my case until C1 is finished going through currently about 6000 pictures. Too long ... still hope it'll be solved soon.
