View Full Version : Aperture trial tutorial

26th March 2008, 03:16 PM
I have downloaded the trial version of Aperture to make a photobook but the tutorial video stops after about 3 seconds. My imac (10.4.11 2.1Ghz 2 g hard drive) - plays all other videos from internet. I have Internode broadband - never any problems normally. I am missing something obvious?

have you reloaded the page?
Have you got the latest Updates to your software e.g Safari 3.1
Have you tried to wait for the movie to buffer?

Give them a go.

Thanks for that lurka but I have checked all those things and and still no difference. I hear that smooth voice and pics for all of 3 seconds only!

Try using Firefox (http://en.www.mozilla.com/en/firefox/).

Out of interest, what exactly happens? Is it playing online? In QuickTime? Or in some other movie playing Application?

After 3 secs, does it just stop and still-frame - or does it do something else, like go white?

I have done the same tutorial online with Safari and have no issues, keen to see what is causing the issue my self.

I had a similar problem with the tours when they first went online.

I can't remember now what one I was using - however you could try Australian Aperture tutorial (http://www.apple.com/au/aperture/tutorials/) Or American Aperture tutorial (http://www.apple.com/aperture/tutorials/)

There *should* be no real difference between them - I'm pretty sure that they are hosted on the same system - but it might be worth giving a try as it's possible that there is local hosting going on and it's become corrupt.

Thanks. The download came from apple.com/aperture/trial When doing the tutorial it links back to the web page rather than come from within the actual application. apple.com/aperture/tutorial/
The tutorial begins then just freezes the picture and sound after 2-3 seconds
Only the first tutorial will begin playing - none of the other ones even begins!
I do not have firefox as using Safari has been more than adequate for my needs so far but may have to reconsider.
I have the latest updates on board for real player.

Humour us and yourself. Click here: Free Firefox Download (http://en-us.www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/).
