    I am. Apparently I’m giving a presentation on it at FCPWorks. There will be some cool stuff to share. Big update coming very very soon.

    Yes, you are John.

    I’ve seen the schedule.

    Looking forward to it.

    I tried it last fall and it didn’t work at all as we hoped for. I might recall it wrong but it I believe it wanted to take far more control over the media than I wanted it to and I believe it didn’t really like reading media from our NAS-storage. It felt more like a one-man-band thing than anything else. But I’d love to be proven wrong! 🙂

    I also think it couldn’t just catalog media from a watch-folder and keep the given folder structure intact on the drives while creative proxies internally for use in KeyFlow Pro.

    I might give it another shot one of these days but it seems not to work as we wanted to.

    Reading their website it seems they might have adressed some of these deal-breakers for us actually.

    Version 1.1.0 added support for Run workflow for media which are imported from Watch Folder
    Version 1.1.5 added support for External Media

    So it might be something we should give another look.

    I’ve been helping them for about 6 months. They are very dedicated to making it great and have upgraded and fixed many of the problems I had. We use it for almost all our media now. Some sweet improvements are in the next update which should be out soon.

    Perhaps my concerns are not common but it can’t read FCPX Camera Archives. The contents are not understood as video. It also can’t see XDCAM EX and XAVC-L clips as video. While it can see the contents of AVCHD as video, it doesn’t use the metadata to join the clips.

    It previews video using AV foundation, so it’s viewing capabilities are similar to Finder. FCPX is better suited to preview FCPX Camera archives.

    [John Davidson] “FCPX is better suited to preview FCPX Camera archives.

    Which isn’t very helpful when you have to search through 5 years worth of them to find material. Something a media asset management should be able to do.

    CatDV can read FCPX Camera Archives. XDCAM family is supported the Calibrated plugins. Granted it costs a bit but at least it’s integrated.
