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!
Head over to the videos category and watch the other videos!
Suggestion: return the user to his last Capture One catalog
When using apHUB, Capture One opens to the apHUB session. Capture One always opens to the last-used catalog or session, so after using apHUB, C1 (when launched independently) opens to the apHUB session and the user must switch manually.
I have a dedicated Capture One catalog that I want to continue using, and Capture One lacks a setting to open a default catalog.
Is it possible for you to add something that forces C1 to open to a default catalog? What I have in mind might look something like this:
1. To open C1 to an apHUB session, double-click the apHUB.cosessiondb file.
2. During opening, apHUB checks to see whether the user had last used a C1 entity other than the apHUB session.
3. Upon closing: a. if the answer to #2 was "true", then apHUB could do something (if possible) to reset C1 to open the user's catalog next time (unless, of course, C1 was opened with apHUB.cosessiondb). b. if the answer to #2 was "false", then apHUB needn't do anything.
