Add 'Backups' to the list
by Carsten Orlt on May 26, 2013 at 12:10:27 am

All the usual suspects, good summary Oliver and good find Garry :-)

One software which I just discovered yesterday should be added: Backups http://npassociatesllc.com/backupsforfcp/

I'm not affiliated at all with this company but I highly recommend this back up solution for Events and Projects.

I used Pro-versioner and unfortunately it doesn't really work. Specially when using Event Manager which I think is a must to keep things tidy and economical. Also Pro-versioner is very unstable and temperamental at times.

Backups is very elegant and really backs up what you need if you are concerned about having no copy of the current projects or event database files on a second hard drive in case the media drive dies. And they fully support 'hidden' folders created by Event Manager. On their website they also have a white paper about back up strategies with FCPx which can be a good read if you're new to the problem.

my 2 cents :-)

Happy Editing

My software:
Pro Maintenance Tools - Tools to keep Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro running smoothly and fix problems when they arise
Pro Media Tools - Edit QuickTime chapters and metdata, detect gamma shifts, edit markers, watch renders and more
More tools...

Hello

Another application to add would be Vordio http://vordio.net/ for those who wish to edit FCPX audio in an external track based DAW, in this case Reaper http://www.reaper.fm/

Regards

Krzysztof

I too, have an upcoming release of 'Backups', which I have just submitted to iTunes.

• Initial support for Xsan network locations.

• You may now double-click on a .fcpBackups archive to initiate a restore.

• You may now control backing up Transcoded Media with an option.

• Show the shortfall if a backup or restore was abandoned because of insufficient disk space.
