Hi there all.

I'm in the process of getting our new NAS FCPX workflow going. At the moment, and for the next few months, it looks like our 2 editors will both be working from home on their laptops.

We store our FCPX 'Live Work' Libraries in a 'Live Work' folder, with referenced Original Media in a separate folder ( so, not in the Live Work Folder) and all other files needed remaining in the library (proxies, motion templates etc) etc.

I would like to find the best way to 2-way sync the small 'Live Work' folder to the two editors offsite. That is, initial sync locally here, then incrementally syncing as work is done. (so, additional proxy footage could be synced to them after a shoot overnight etc).

The idea is to have the sync folder on an external thunderbolt drive that remains connected to the mac most of the time. The 872XT would sync the folders with the data and the work that is done by the editor's int he FCPX libraries is synced back to the 872XT

What I'd like to ask is what is the best app to achieve this? I've read different takes, some say QSync, others ChromoSync and still other HBS3. I'm new to the QNAP ecosystem so would appreciate any and all guidance on this!

Thanks

hi, hi

have you checked out Postlab from Hedge?

They have some very cool features coming soon:



Alternatively for just the sync side of things maybe this is worth checking....
