What is apHUB?
apHUB is a suite of Applescripts, that transform Aperture into your central hub for storing your images and sending their master (RAW or JPEG) with a single keystroke to other image editors (currently Capture One, DxO OpticsPro in development) and getting them back with full behind-the-scenes handling of the external settings and mask files. Thus the whole process is non-destructive.
With the combination of apHUB, Aperture and Capture One and/or DxO OpticsPro you have an integrated Photo management and editing suite that is far superior to any currently existing single Photo management application!

During the installation you have choosen your language preference file and renamed it to apHUB Preferences.scpt. This is the global preferences file shared by all apHUB scripts. You can open it in ScriptEditor with a double click.
Here is the content of the English version:
As you see it consist of lines beginning with property, then the name of the property, a colon, the value of the property and then, separated by 2 dashes, the description, what this property does.
You may only change the value of the property according to the description nothing else (well you may change the description, if you don't like mine ).
Not every property is used in every Script.
Individual Preferences for each Script
You can override the global preferences for each script.
The scripts are actually script bundles. You can open them with a right click and choose "Show Package Contents".
Here is the content of the Capture One -> Aperture (replace).scptd bundle:
You see another Preferences.scpt file there.
Lets look inside:
Here I override the property returnMode with value "replace".
For each property you override, you also have to add a line
set thePref's PropertyNametoPropertyName
Actually the Capture One -> Aperture (new).scptd andCapture One -> Aperture (replace).scptd bundles are identical exept for this Preferences.scpt file.
If the Preferences.scpt doesn't already exist in the Scripts folder, you have to create a new Applescript and save it there as Preferences.scpt or copy one from another script and change it's content.
