    Issues with Aperture 3
    Hi everyone, I've been having issues with my Aperture 3 program and that is anytime I launch the program, the software goes in processing mode and I cannot do anything. Can someone help?

    I'm not a Aperture expert but it seems to me that Aperture needs to process something. (thumbnails and previews usually)
    Aperture from my brief experience with it, takes a long long time to process thumbnails and previews so would be best just to open Aperture when you don't need it or the computer, like overnight and let it just do its thing.

    You can see what what Aperture is doing by pressing command+shift+0 (That's a zero)
    Does it show anything when the activity window opens?

    This is correct. Any time I've ever reinstalled Aperture (which I do from time to time because i don't use it as a DAM, I use Lightroom, I just use it to learn how it works for personal reasons) I know that I have to do it when I'm not going to be using it or my computer, since it usually takes about 24 hours to process all of the thumbnails and previews. You'd be best served by not using the faces feature IMO, unless you find it truly useful.

    Personally, I don't find it all that useful since I tag all my photos upon import, so any person (even candid) is just one click away. Anyway, just give it some time and let it do its thing.

    Yep, just let it finish going through it's analyzing for it's 'Faces' feature. I'd suggest setting your machine to not go to sleep and start up Aperture when you go to bed - it can take awhile depending on how many pics you've got.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    You should be able to select the movie file prcess in the activity window and click on "Cancel Task".
    Then I would look for the video and remove it from Aperture.

    So how did it all go with this? Did it finish well? Just so you know, for future reference, if you want to exclude certain file types during import, there's a drop down section where you can select specific things:
