Hello.

I have lots of footage on various different hard-drives and I need a programme I can use an edl with to find the footage and then copy it onto a new hard drive, then, when I plug the next hard-drive in, move onto that and find and copy the relevant files. Does anyone know if Monkey Extract can do this?

Clipfinder would also be a choice, depending on how exactly you want the new footage to be setup.

Thanks very much Noah. We've sorted it - ended up getting a colleague to write a special script.

Mount all your drives at the same time and create aliases for all the drives on one of the drives. Then point Monkey Extract to the drive with the aliases and it will find/move them all to the location you'd like.

I.E. If you have 2 drives, plug in drive 1 & 2 (daisy chain if needed, although I try to use the bus on the front of the machine as well as the back for better speeds, rather than a single long daisy chain). Then create an alias for drive 2 on drive 1. Then point monkey extract to drive one to look for your source files.

Alternatively - you can just run monkey on each drive individually and it will copy the files it finds and move them.
