When I import an existing C1 catalog (properly working, verified and all images 'referenced') into a new empty catalog only 1/3rd of the images are imported properly. The existing collections get properly imported, but 2/3rd of the images suddenly show up as 'managed' images inside the catalog and all their edits, ratings and keywords get lost.
In a second try I used an older 1/1 copy of the catalog with the same result.
I even used the restore feature using a backup copy to create the catalog again (all referenced and working well and equal to my existing catalog) and import it from there ..... same result when importing that catalog then into a new one.
You might ask why there is a need for doing this. This was my testing the behavior as I wanted to import (as I usually do) the catalog into my master catalog (all referenced) which resulted in the mess described above.
I get similar behaviors with importing other catalogs into an empty catalog.
I am using C1 14.0.2 and I am using the File>Import Catalog>Import Capture One Catalog function. All images and catalogues residing on internal and fast SSD. I already opened a support ticket with no answer yet.
Any idea what could be done to properly import one catalog into another?
