Avalanche for Lightroom 1.0 is out !
The CYME team is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Avalanche 1.0, the new photo migration software for macOS with machine learning capabilities. Avalanche is designed to convert catalogs of photographs from one application to another while keeping the organisational structures intact, ensuring all metadata flows without losses and image adjustments are replicated with the best possible results.
Avalanche for Lightroom, the first version of Avalanche, focuses on providing a solution for photographers with photos stuck in Apple Aperture, which isn’t supported anymore by Apple. Since the release of Catalina, Aperture users can’t rely on launching Aperture anymore to access their photo libraries. Avalanche allows a smooth transfer of the libraries towards other applications : today towards Lightroom or folders and soon towards other applications like Luminar, CaptureOne, etc.
• A browser interface to easily find all catalogs on all connected volumes. • A user friendly conversion screen with detailed information about the content to be converted and detailed progress monitoring.
• A detailed reporting screen and a conversion log in the form of a CSV file to easily find out what errors were encountered (missing files, corrupted database situations, etc.)
• The most complete support for content migration: masters, videos, virtual copies are all handled .
• The most complete support for metadata and annotations migration: IPTC, EXIF, tags, keywords, flags, faces, stacks, … you name it. They are all handled. – Machine Learning powered conversion of adjustments. And many more features to discover …
Avalanche for Lightroom requires macOS 10.14 or later and runs well on Catalina.
You need around 145 MB of free space, 4GB of memory (8GB recommended) and enough space to accommodate the converted libraries.
A working copy of Apple Aperture is not required to migrate Aperture libraries as Avalanche opens those libraries natively.
Avalanche for Lightroom will receive planned updates in the coming weeks with the new features and improvements such as the addition of Apple Photos as a source.We are already busy working on the next versions of Avalanche to migrate from Aperture/Photos/Lightroom to CaptureOne, Luminar and more.
Stay tuned in early 2020 for great new opportunities for your photos.
Happy Xmas time!
