I am not an "IT guy" but has anyone had any success moving P2 data files to and from an FTP site? Seams like a better way than shipping hard drives. How fast of a connection would you need?
Thanks
Paul

I have tried it - works OK. Only problem was that people using avid could not find out how to import it when it was not on a P2 card. If you want to transfer a lot of raw material it would take a heavy duty connection to work. I use it from time to time for small clips and finised material (selling clips) but also for quicktime movies and MP4's.

Yeah that's a ton of data to be moving across the net. If you've got dual fiber or maybe 10 minutes worth of footage I could see it but otherwise I'd just FedEx hard drives.

I just did that last month. I had my Laptop in Sweden and I had some P2 footage that they needed back in California. It was only about 4 gigs and I used Stuffit to compress down the file so I was only uploading 1 file. the one cool side effect of the new Stuffit is that it seems to be MXF aware. Once I compressed the file I expanded it to be sure it compressed ok. When I did a window popped up showing me a thumb nail of all the clips before it expanded, very cool.

What size was the file once compressed?
