Avalanche is a native Mac app from CYME that promises to quickly migrate Aperture photo libraries to Adobe Lightroom or Lightroom catalogs to folders of files while using AI for some processing assistance…
Avalanche uses Machine Learning to automatically adjust the edits you made on a photo in order for it to look exactly(*) the same after migration. Not all adjustments made to your photos require AI. Some, like the geometry adjustments (straighten, crop) are carried across very precisely. Avalanche uses AI for: White balance, Exposure and light, Color and Tint, Highlights and Shadows.
(*) we really do our best. If you are unhappy with some results, you can contribute to train our ML algoritm to fit your needs.
Features include conversion of annotations, flags, ratings, color labels, keywords, faces, metadata, versions, videos, simple albums (but not smart albums), and more.
Masters are recreated in the target catalog with corresponding import sessions. Referenced files can be copied or left in place. When available, stacks are fully reconstructed in the target album. Versions (also called virtual copies) are recreated in the target catalog, with all specific adjustments, metadata and annotations
Avalanche for Lightroom 1.0 is priced at $59 for macOS 10.14 and later. A trial mode will export the first 100 “masters.” Versions for other photo apps (CaptureOne, Luminar) are promised for later.
