A while back, I used the LR plugin to import a batch of old Aperture images (raw.) It worked exactly as many had described: moved at a good clip, then slowed more each day. The first batch took a week. I'm trying another batch now, but the import started very slow and after 3 weeks I have only about 30% imported. Obviously I need to stop the import. But when I reboot and try again, is there any way to pick up where I left off, or will I need to import the first 30% all over again?

I'm not sure what happens when you restart. But a workaround to this blatant performance bug is to split the Aperture library into chunks of no more than 5,000 photos each and then import the smaller libraries separately.

Alternatively, consider the Avalanche app -- a number of people have reported very good results using it to import into LR from Aperture.

Appreciate all the help. I did try Avalanche. But in the end, I learned that the plugin DOES pick up where you left off. So I just re-started every morning and took advantage of the faster times at the start. Project done. Really appreciate the tips!
