    yes it did help, however I need to understand how the UI interface will compare on ON1 to that on Aperture.

    I suggest you make a video as many, like myself will need to understand the different UI and workflow that is required by the working of ON1 compared to Aperture.

    You must appreciate that I have set up literally millions of client images on Aperture so its a serious shift.

    Feedback appreciated of course.

    PS I may wait until Catalina becomes bug free.

    Just a comment re UI...I would love it if the command modules on ON1 were able to be repositioned on the pane windows in a custom manner. I have found I dont like the positions current control bars suits my workflow..just a suggestion re customisation

    I just purchased ON1 RAW 2020, and followed this process for an 8400-photo Aperture library.  That all seemed to work very well, mostly. But I'm not seeing IPTC data for MOST of my photos.  The sidecar file was indeed created for all photos, but only photos the had star ratings in Aperture had their keywords, city and state locations, etc show up in ON1.  All EXIF info was indeed transferred, however.   

    The Cataloged Folder process is still running, so maybe I need to wait until that finishes...

    I did a LOT of work with keywords over the years in Aperture, and the fact that ON1 handles these was one of the main reasons I bought it (as opposed to Luminar, whose DAM was a big disappointment - but that's another story...) 

    Any ideas on getting keywords pulled over would be appreciated! I'm hoping ON1 will be my main photo software for this next decade!

    Thanks - Bob

    Follow up: I figured it out.  ON1 can NOT read the keywords and location information from the sidecar files.  I re-exported the originals without the sidecars, that is,  with embedding that information right into the JPEGS themselves.  ON1 no trouble extracting all the metadata straight from the image files.
