Amsterdam, Netherlands, IBC Booth 7.H40 (September 13, 2016) — Studio Network Solutions has announced a new feature for ShareBrowser media management and workflow software that improves workflows with Final Cut Pro X. Editors with EVO shared storage can now use ShareBrowser to export media to an open Final Cut Pro X library and maintain custom metadata so they can retain their media structure within the NLE.

The new Final Cut Pro X export feature in ShareBrowser can be used by editors to:

  • Quickly find media and export it into an open Final Cut Pro X library.
  • Bring custom tags and comments into the Final Cut Pro X notes fields.
  • Maintain their own project organization within Final Cut Pro X.

Other features of ShareBrowser allow users to:

  • Organize media with custom metadata, keyword tags, and comments.
  • Search any indexed storage device.
  • Preview indexed online and offline media.
  • Securely share Final Cut Pro X libraries with multiple editors.

ShareBrowser is designed for EVO shared storage users to help teams organize and share media. It gives users ability to search online and offline storage by custom tags and comments, and also includes data verification and project sharing tools. Inside the ShareBrowser client, media can be previewed and tagged after indexing. Users can apply tags to entire folders of media and comments that describe individual shots. Users can then search for media using those tags; then select clips and export them directly into an open Final Cut Pro X library. This feature makes those tags and comments available inside of Final Cut Pro X so that editors can quickly reference them during editorial.

“We’re building upon the foundation of our existing Final Cut Pro X integrations. Our customers are already using ShareBrowser’s metadata fields to manage their media between ingest and archival. But now we’ve extended the utility of that metadata deeper into the editorial process,” said Ryan Stoutenborough, President, Studio Network Solutions. “Metadata is a powerful tool for staying organized, and it’s something that never stops being valuable. With ShareBrowser, we’ve built a way that makes managing and utilizing it a lot more intuitive and streamlined.”

Inside the Final Cut Pro X browser, the notes show ShareBrowser metadata. Users’ ShareBrowser descriptions populate the Notes field inside of Final Cut Pro X and make it easier to find media, organize timelines, and review shot notes. It also becomes much easier to tell the difference between camera files with names like “A011_C003_080213_001” and “B011_C0012_080213_001” at a glance. Editors can use this metadata to improve the organization of media in their libraries.
