Pro Media Tools 1.8 - manual checksum validator, conform improvements and more

Pro Media Tools 1.8 is a major update to our suite of media management tools. Here's what's new.

Checksum Validator

Auto Transfer has always checksummed your files when copying them, but it now has a tool to manually verify checksums. It's very flexible - drag in multiple drives, folders or files and it will generate checksums and compare them all.

This is helpful for verifying data integrity between two sources that Auto Transfer didn't copy, or were copied a long time ago.

Conform improvements

QT Edit has undergone several changes to improve frame rate conforming. Most of these are under the hood changes but there is one user-facing addition.

We've added a new checkbox to the Conform pane to disable frame rate inversion. Like the other options on that pane, most people should not need to check it, but this option can help when converting from a non-integer frame rate (e.g. 23.976) to an integer frame rate (e.g. 25). You should only use this option if you get incorrect results with it switched off.

Other changes


  • Auto Transfer - Added a right-click option to add a mounted drive as a destination
  • Auto Transfer - Added file sizes to transfer log
  • Edit Detector - Numbers in filenames are now padded
  • Video Check - Added space, JKL and arrow key shortcuts to navigate the video
