Huge PDFs from Bru-PE
on Apr 13, 2017 at 2:23:38 pm

When one does a backup of about 2 TB of Alexa shoot files to LTO with Bru, and makes a PDF of the contents at the end of the backup, one ends up with a PDF the runs into thousands of pages, since Bru lists every single file. This makes it impossible to make a printout.

Since Alexa shoots to file sequences, every frame is a file. 1440 files per minute (per 10 GB) so in 2 TB one would have some hundreds of millions of files each faithfully listed in the Bru PDF.

Is there some way to present file sequences as a single entry?

For instance, an Arriraw file sequence that runs from

has 18853 separate entries in the Bru PDF

But, If its listed like how DaVinci Resolve lists the above example as one entry, like
it could potentially bring down the size of the PDF to manageable (even printable) levels.
And make it easier to browse through looking for a particular clip.

Red camera or Sony files are no problem as one clip is one file, so PDFs of those camera backups are compact.

With LTO-7 doing 5+ TB this is an even bigger problem.

Any fixes?
