This thread makes it clear that Adobe's plugin for migrating from Aperture to Lightroom does not support adjustments.

If it doesn't support adjustments, then what do I get out of using the plugin that I wouldn't also get by directly importing Aperture's Masters folder?

See Adobe's FAQ on the importer. It doesn't include adjustments, but does include other metadata:

  • Flags
  • Star Ratings
  • Keywords
  • GPS Data
  • Hidden files
  • Face naming tags are mapped to keywords
  • some other stuff.

So... not much more than just importing the files directly, but if you've used the rating and categorization features heavily, this will preserve that.
