Photo Mechanic: Version 5 Build 16438
« on: May 27, 2015, 02:19:45 PM »
Hello Everyone,

We have a new updated build that solves a number of issues present in the 16299 build.  Please see below for release notes.



Version 5.0 Build 16438

• Ingest will always copy video files, no matter what the copy RAW/non-RAW filter files setting is.
• Ingest now ignores the proprietary RDSC.DB files generated by certain Ricoh cameras.
• Fixed an issue that would cause WAV files formatted a certain way not to play.
• Fixed an issue in Ingest renaming where users couldn’t enter periods (.) in the middle of filenames where the periods were the only character between two {variables}.
• Load Selection now matches item names more loosely. First, exact match is done, then exact base name with uppercase extension, then exact name base with lowercase extension, then caseless matching. Finally, if none of the above matches, then caseless base name only matching is performed.
• ORI files from the new Olympus E-M5MarkII are now paired with their ORF file for the purposes of
copying, renaming, and deleting.
• The time zone, if any, for the XMP photoshop:DateCreated field is now preserved when using the Adjust Capture Dates and Times command.
• The XMP xmp:CreateDate and exif:DateTimeOriginal fields are updated when updating photoshop:DateCreated, and used as a backup on reading if photoshop:DateCreated is missing.
• Loading XMP files in the IPTC Stationery Pad that were not saved from the IPTC Stationery Pad will have their Date field’s popup menu default to ‘Date’ unless the preference “Always use today’s date in IPTC Stationery Pad is set.
• Snapshots for the ingest, rename, copy / move, save as, and watermarking dialogs now only save and load relevant fields (e.g. rename string isn’t saved or loaded if not renaming).
• Added the following PMDebug.txt flags for ignoring filename extensions ( see the build 16268 notes for more info at ) :
   IGNORE_EXTENSION_IDSF (Iridient Developer 3, if you don’t use this software you can disable this extension safely.)
   IGNORE_EXTENSION_IDPRE (Iridient Developer 3, if you don’t use this software you can disable this extension safely.)
   IGNORE_EXTENSION_ORI (Used with the latest Olympus cameras, if you don’t use Olympus cameras this extension can be safely ignored.)

• Fixed a problem in the Send Photos via Email dialog where the JPEG size limit would be ignored.
• Fixed problem displaying non-alpha PNG files with palette color mode on Mac.

• File/Folder Open/Save dialogs now remember paths for each feature of Photo Mechanic.
• File/Folder Open/Save dialogs look better when PM’s UI is set to use the dark UI.
• Fixed a problem launching Photoshop droplets when running on Windows 8.1 64-bit.
