"Importing Video from my D-7000"


US
          

New to this forum & to my D7000. Love the stills. But I can't figure out how to import video. When I connect to my i-Mac for stills, it automatically launches Apeture and I import the stills. But the D7000 doesn't show-up as an icon on my desktop, so have no way for i-movie to find the camera to import the video.

The manuel is no help.

Can someone with experience importing video data to a mac tell me how to do it?

gracias mil!

-Rick

Hi Rick,
I don't have an answer for you right now, but you might want to also post this on the Apple Post Processing (Aperture) forum.

A good start would be to list your versions of Aperture, OS X and iMovie. I'm totally up to date with patches so I'll try to import a movie from my D7000 tomorrow and let you know how it goes.

I'm new to on-line fora; it's very cool to get your advice. Thanks!

If you install the View Nx2 program that came with the d7000 you can use Nikon Transfer 2 to transfer your video files.

I don't use Aperture so not sure how you can use it to transfer but I am sure there is a way. You may want to try asking on the Post Processing Forums, I think there is an Apple Forum there.

Thanks Jason; I've been reluctant to load the nikon software since I really like the apple stuff. But if I can't figure the other stuff out, it does seem like a good backup plan.

Aperture should be marking the movies for import just the way it does the stills. It probably has imported your movies if you're importing all images in the camera, so you should be able to find the movie in the same folder where the images were imported. Then open up iMovie, select import and navigate to the file location where Aperture stored the imported movies.

Is Aperture setup to import MOV file types at the system level?

If you click on the MOV file type, what program opens?
This will be your default program for processing MOV files.

You may need to manually locate them and import them into Aperture.

> The manuel is no help.

He must be from Cupertino and does not speak English. But I see from many post that is he also does not work well with CLS Speedlights.

If Aperture is configured in the Preferences menu to open whenever a camera is connected, it will still start whenever you connect a camera or plug in a memory card from a camera, and present all images on the card as potential imports even if it is not configured as the default application to open those files. That's because it's not opening the files, it's opening the card.

If I click to open a .MOV file on my iMac, it will start the QuickTime player. However, if I insert the card from my D7000 with a .MOV on it, it will open the card and show the file for possible import.

This topic should probably really be moved to the post processing forum now.

Lightroom should be considered for images. It should also import videos, but playback will be designated by the user. Quicktime etc.

Hi Rick,
It occurred to me that importing directly into Aperture is not the optimal way to do things. I do multi-media and always have to trim, edit, splice video to enhance it. That's not Aperture's forte.

It's better to create a project and import your video .mov files into iMovie. Edit the video clips and then import the polished video into Aperture. You can also reference your videos to Aperture 3.

Yesterday I shot a 30-second video on my D7000, imported from a card reader into an iMovie project, then imported from iMovie 11 into Aperture 3. I also imported the .mov file into Final Cut.

I have an Intel-based iMac with all the Aperture updates, iLife 11 and OS X updates.

Don't forget when you import into Aperture to use "Import file".

Hope that gets you closer.

Larry

Thanks Larry! I think you nailed it.

I really appreciate you taking the time to figure this out. Much appreciated.

And thanks too to all the other Nikonians who gave me the benefit of your thinking. It's an amazing showing of kindness in an often too busy to care world.

Yes, Aperture is not a movie editor. However, if he still has Aperture configured to start whenever he connects a camera or plugs in a card from his camera, Aperture will start and mark the .MOV file for import along will other image files on the card. If he want to import into iMovie instead, he'll have to remember to uncheck the .mov files.
