Pro Media Tools 1.0.2 released - lots of new Auto Transfer features

Last week we released Pro Media Tools 1.0.2, a significant update to our suite of tools for processing and managing media in Final Cut Studio, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro.

The focus of this version was Auto Transfer and lots of new features have been added.

New verification window

If a transfer fails, it now pops up a new window showing exactly which files are invalid. You can choose to verify again, recopy the failed files or copy the entire drive again.

Auto Transfer now checks the file sizes before running the full verification check, allowing it to spot errors very quickly without needing to run a time-consuming verification.

Info panel

The new Info panel shows additional information about each volume, including how many times a volume has failed to transfer. A high number of failures is generally an indication that the drive is bad.

More Actions

You can now archive to a DMG or ZIP after transferring, display a Growl notification or play an audible alert.

Add timecode from THM files in QT Edit

QT Edit can now add timecode to a clip from a THM file. THM files are created by cameras such as the Canon 5D MkII and contain additional useful metadata.

To add timecode from a THM file, go to the Quick Tasks pane and select Create Timecode Track from THM file. Click Perform Task and navigate to the location of the THM file on your memory card. A new timecode track will be added with the information from the THM file.

This is a small overview of the changes in Pro Media Tools 1.0.2. The full changelog is available here. A 15-day trial of Pro Media Tools is available here.
