For some reason when I open a Folder within my Catalog in Lightroom, when I have it Filter by Capture Time, it sub-filters it as well by the Subfolders.
Before I could select the Main Folder, see all the photos in the Sub-Folders, filter by 'Capture Time' and all the Photos would filter by Capture Time as expected. Now they are filtering by Capture Time, but in groups by Sub-Folder.
I am a Wedding Photographer and use MULTIPLE Cameras through the day and being able to Filter all Cameras and Sub-Folders under a Main Folder and Filter by Capture Time is very important. Why did that stop working and how do I fix it?
Could you post a screenshot? I assume you mean 'sort', not 'filter', but to be honest I have no idea what you are saying.
I know, it's quite hard to explain, and I am sorry for that. The photo below is not mine and taken from Google; though, it will serve the purpose. Looking at the Photo you see the selected folder "Lake District" with several subfolders below. I use a similar structure with Weddings. The "Lake District" would be the "Main Folder" for a said Wedding, then I have 'Sub-Folders' for each seperate camera which are all time synced. I used to just select the "Main Folder" for a Wedding and filter by 'Capture Time' to have all the cameras (Sub-Folders) under the "Main Folder" show all the photos from all the cameras filtered by 'Capture Time' to have a timeline layout of the day as I edit. Though, for some reason now it still filters by 'Capture Time' but in blocks based on the Sub-Folders, and not the overall collection of photos under the "Main Folder"
...does that make more sense?
Yes, I mean't SORT thank you; though, the problem still remains. Any ideas?
I can't replicate that. If I select a parent folder with the images in subfolders, then I see the images in the sort order I have chosen at the bottom of the grid. I could not even get the images to sort by subfolder if I wanted to... Are you sure the capture time of the cameras was synced, so this is not a coincidence caused by the date & time of one camera being complety off?
