Avalanche is a native Mac app from Cyme SAS that promises to quickly migrate Aperture photo libraries to Adobe Lightroom or Skylum’s Luminar 4, or migrate Lightroom catalogs to folders of files, all 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 1.1.4 for Lightroom and Avalanche 1.0 for Luminar are priced at $59 for macOS 10.14 and later. A trial mode will export the first 100 “masters.”
Avalanche Unlimited 1.0.2, priced at $119.99 for macOS 10.14 or later, covers both Lightroom and Luminar, along with future additions.
Avalanche Unlimited … features all input and output sources currently supported by CYME and will be updated regularly. Avalanche Unlimited lets you currently migrate to Lightroom or to Luminar, but CYME has already announced that Capture One support is on the way and will be added later this year.
