Pro Media Tools is a suite of workflow tools designed to simplify media management and streamline workflows in Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere for Mac.

The suite contains tools for detecting gamma shifts, editing QuickTime movie metadata, watching render files, editing markers, and much more. The applications are capable of outputting a variety of file formats to suit different editing systems and workflows.

ORGANIZE YOUR PROJECTS

IMPROVE DSLR WORKFLOWS

Offload and verify your media, tag it with timecode and metadata, and conform slow-motion footage.

MANAGE CHAPTERS AND MARKERS

Mass-modify markers and convert marker lists to QuickTime chapters.

RENDER ALERTS

CLEAN UP TIMELINES

Collapse tracks, remove disabled clips, strip filters and markers.

BATCH RENAME

Batch Renamer

Renames multiple files at once with options including find and replace, frame renumbering, frame padding and more.

Edit Detector

Scans video files to locate where edits and scene changes occur. Can output QuickTime movies, marker lists, Final Cut Pro XML files and EDLs.

Gamma Shift Detector

Detects gamma shifts between source and destination media. It will tell you if the shift directly affects the pixels in the image or if it is just a mismatch in metadata.

Post Haste

Create folder structures for each project from customizable templates.

Project Overview

Provides a complete overview of your Final Cut Pro project, showing you all media, effects and markers. Data can be printed and modified en-masse. Can be used for mass-editing markers with offsetting, custom fields, label presets and the ability to import Avid locators into an FCP project.
