Transferring a tethered shoot from laptop to main computer/monitor
« on: September 19, 2014, 05:00:19 pm »

I normally shoot with CFC's and post process on my mac pro desktop with my old reliable calibrated Eizo,  but I had to do a tethered shoot this morning, and although my macbook pro is calibrated as much as a laptop can be, my older Eizo is much better calibrated and I'd like to transfer all of my mornings shoot to my desktop Mac Pro.  I've thought of a few ways I might accomplish this, but am thinking there are several people on here more knowledgeable than me who do this all the time and could use your suggestions.  Much obliged.

The easiest way is if you have a network set up, but it sounds like you probably don't yet. You can either set up a wireless network between your computers or you can hard wire them together with an ethernet cable. Then you set up ethernet file sharing and you can "see" one computer from the other. After you access the other computer, it's drives will show up on your desktop as if they were alternative drives on that computer. Then it's drag and drop. The newer Mac OS's will have to have file permissions set to allow copies, too.

The slightly less convenient way is to plug a portable drive into your laptop, copy the shoot folder to that and move the drive to your desktop and copy over to that.

I'm sorry I wasn't more clear.  It isn't the physical transfer that's the problem, but rather what file(s) to transfer.  I'm only dealing with a dozen or so RAW images that were taken then immediately post-processed to closely match ambient light conditions, so I need to transfer those as well as the post-processing that was done at the scene--I believe that they would all be in a file where the "session" is stored away, and it is that file(s) I need to find--I was then just going to use flash drive to copy and transfer.

So, can anyone tell me which files and where they are stored? I'd be very appreciative.

If you shot a session you just move the whole session folder to the new computer. Everything you need then gets transferred by moving the one single folder.

Yep, this is one of the best parts of Capture One workflow!

When in a typical pro workflow use a Session (instead of a Catalog) and simply move the session folder and you don't have to worry any further about the details - everything (raws, jpgs, tiffs, deleted files, ratings, adjustments etc) is inside the session folder.

But where do I find the session folder?  Sorry to be so obtuse, but while I have used C0 for years, I have never gotten into the file hierarchy. What's the hierarchical pathway to where I find it and once I copy it, where do I put it on my desktop?

Do you start a new session for every new job and name it?

The default location is normally the pictures folder on a Mac but you can put in anywhere you want so depends where you normally put your images.

If you didn't create a new session and still use the default folder for C1 it will be in your pictures folder called something linke Capture One Library or Capture One Sesssion depending on the version of C1 you are using.

Doug and Gazwas--believe it or not, I've been working with C1 since Version 6 was new and diligently managed to learn nothing about sessions (or catalogs)--it just seemed easier to keep my head in the sand as I was getting the output I needed by dragging my processed tifs to my external HD and keeping my raw images on a separate HD.  I suppose I was in one big session, but your comments were exceedingly helpful and thanks again.

As I understand what you've told me, I can create a session for each client or shoot or project, etc., naming the file and either shoot to the file on my laptop(desktop) and then migrate the entire 'Capture" file to my main computer, or if shooting with CFCard, open a new session for the file which everything automatically goes into.  I could then leave the full session filed by it's assigned session name on my HD and also drag it to a separate BU hard drive to archive--correct? 

Can it be as simple s that or did I miss something?

Dave--those are great informative videos which I just watched and will watch again--it really simplifies things.  I was particularly intrigued with the session on Live View, which seemed to answer a question  I posted else where--is the Phase 645DF+ coupled with IQ280 capable of using Live View on computer screen in tethered mode?  Thanks for your patience :).
