Joe, Thanks for your kind words about ShotPut Pro. Please visit us at NAB booth this year to discuss your LTO needs. I'm not aware that SilverStack nor Cat DV have direct LTO integration And BRU is no

Steve, That's very curious. First, typically caching should NOT be disabled--especially on Mavericks. The suggestion to do so often helps older, slower systems. It MAY help on 10.9 if your system is u

HD-VU is designed as an 'all-in-one' player of virtually any camera original media. In that sense, it's a general purpose viewer, but doesn't rely upon QT codecs for most formats. That said, it's not

I don't think that's the point. Apple even tells you NOT to import directly from the card. Could be that a progressive offload of the card might be something people will be looking for down the road.

Just to be clear, HD Log has the choice to export either 'self contained' movies or the 'reference files' when creating FCP XML outputs. You don't have to save the 'Alias Log' files first (but you can

Sounds like you need to upgrade your ShotPut to the current version. It's much faster than Finder because it uses multi-threading. (Early versions of ShotPut EXpress used Apple's Cocoa copy commands w
