Re: [Avid-L2] Aspera Amazon etc

 

Interesting analysis of Resilio. We tried it locally on an experimental basis only, and it worked great. (Locally, like one side of Los Angeles to the other.) Seems like your route had some bottlenecks that Google drive eliminated.

Thanks for sharing your experience!

Have you tried the highest rated email app?
With 4.5 stars in iTunes, the Yahoo Mail app is the highest rated email app on the market. What are you waiting for? Now you can access all your inboxes (Gmail, Outlook, AOL and more) in one place. Never delete an email again with 1000GB of free cloud storage.

RE: [Avid-L2] Aspera Amazon etc

 

Having been in a similar situation recently, I tried a few of the suggestions here, and more. I had to move about 200 gigs of footage across the Atlantic.


I first tried Resilio. Which is essentially a direct access to a folder you share on your Mac/PC. It's not bad but it forces you to leave your machine on during the whole process. Which took 4 days altogether because some files didn't sync properly. If your upload speed is low (I'm on Fiber so my upload was at least as good as the download speed on the recipients' machine) then it could take a very long time. I was hoping it would be faster since my upload speed is pretty high, but clearly something gets in the way.

Next I went for BackBlaze as I liked the idea behind their company. Failed to install their command line tools so I couldn't upload big folders/files via the web browser. I realized that Cyberduck (ftp software) allows you to connect directly to BackBlaze. That was a good work around. But I got a lot of "checksum errors" on upload, and quite a few corrupt files on my colleagues' end once they downloaded the media files.

Third attempt was to use Google Drive (don't like Google, don't we all?) with Cyberduck too. This time, sending 250 gigs of material. I was impressed by the speed of the transfer, basically it used all the bandwidth I could give. No checksum error things. And downloading was pretty fast and pain free from the other side - using Cyberduck too as it can resume transfers and compare files to make sure you have the same thing locally and on the server. It's just a bit cumbersome to setup Google Drive with Cyberduck (you have to allow it in your web browser, and it's neither friendly nor intuitive). But we will use this method next time because it's been the fastest, most reliable and pretty cheap - I upgraded my account to the $10/month version.

Amazon S3 was on my list but it requires a programmer's degree... but I found out recently that it can be accessed via Cyberduck too. Might give it a try.

Hi list,

So for a small shop that would like to be able to transfer large files to other facilities in other countries, what would you recommend?

I've been using WeTransfer and DropBox, but have in the past worked with facilities that provided transfers to and from their Aspera Connect Server, and that's really something.

Is there a similar solution for a small shop like mine, and what kind of $$ would we be talking about? On average I think I'd need to do two 100GB uploads per month.

Thanks for any tips.

[Avid-L2] SOLVED: Re: TC Display Question

 




SOLVED (thanks Jason Schwab):
Change over to HD format, if you're in NTSC (SD) mode.

Sorry for the bandwidth.

Is anyone out there in post-production land using a "chip-chart reader" plugin for Premiere Pro?

 

I know this type of functionality is built directly into Resolve, but I'm not editing in Resolve.

 

I've found a utility for creating a 3D LUT from a chip chart, but it's for photograpy and not video.

 

My Google-Fu is not strong today.

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: [Avid-L2] OT: Project Aspect Ratio Settings in iMovie on iPad?

 


Went to Fry's and pickup a IStore N Go from Verbatim.  When first plugged in it automatically directs to the app store to get the Store N Go app necessary for it to work.  Of course that requires a password that I assume my daughter has but she's at work now.  Repluging in the drive doesn't give the same prompt so it's only the first time it's plugged into the device that it directs to the necessary app.  Fortunately the app store still points to the app so when she gets home I can see if I can install it with her password.

I really hate having to deal with this primitive non intuitive interface of IOS.  The fact that Apple is moving the normal mac OS systems closer to this interface is disheartening.  Oh well we did find out that older versions of iMovie do offer a 4x3 project setting but apparently the current version that is on this school iPad does not.  One step forward and 5 steps back.

Can you add apps ?  There are other editors besides iMovie.  Pinnacle Studio for iPad has more control over how stills are handled.  Not an expert but I have played with it.

Re: [Avid-L2] OT: Project Aspect Ratio Settings in iMovie on iPad?

 

I don't have an answer for you but I will say BE VERY CAREFUL what
buttons you tap in IOS. I was trying to restore some music to iTunes on
my iPhone from iTunes on my notebook on Friday. When I selected to
music and clicked "restore" it (without any real warning) wiped my phone
and restored it to a mid 2016 backup. Today, it took 2 hours by myself
plus 2 hours with Apple support using 2 iPhones, my land line and my
notebook (simultaneously) to restore my last iCloud backup.

My advice; read exactly what every button says, think about what that
might have actually said in whatever language was native to the code
writer, think about every misleading auto translation you've ever read,
think again, count to ten and then reconsider before you tap anything.
That said, have you tried connecting your Mac to the iPad via iTunes?
