Studio Network Solutions (SNS) Releases ShareBrowser 5.0.3 with Extensions for Final Cut Pro X and After Effects and New Amazon S3 Integration

Version 5.0.3 of the easy-to-use media management software adds direct integration into Final Cut Pro X and Adobe After Effects, along with several other new features for video teams.

St. Louis, MO – August 13th, 2019 — Studio Network Solutions (SNS), a leading media technology company that enables video teams to securely store, share, and organize media, today announced the release of ShareBrowser 5.0.3, the latest version of their built-in media management software for EVO shared storage servers.

ShareBrowser for Final Cut Pro X

ShareBrowser has become the latest workflow extension for Final Cut Pro X, enabling teams to search, access, organize, and import media and metadata directly into Final Cut Pro X library from directly within the Final Cut Pro interface.

Features include

• Drag and drop media from shared storage directly to your media library
• Organize media with custom tags and comments
• Import Final Cut Pro X keywords and notes from ShareBrowser metadata
• Create and share media bins from within Final Cut Pro X
• Quickly find and preview clips, audio files, graphics, and other media files on your network

Panel Extension for Adobe After Effects

Similar to the Final Cut Pro X workflow extension, After Effects users also have a new way to use ShareBrowser without switching applications. By installing the ShareBrowser panel in the Adobe Exchange, After Effects artists will have the ability to take full advantage of ShareBrowser’s powerful search and preview tools, shared media bins, tags and comments, and more.

Catalog Files You Send to Amazon S3

At NAB, Studio Network Solutions unveiled new features for automatic backup and cloud sync/replication. Now, it’s even easier for teams to keep track of the files they’re backing up or archiving.

When you use EVO’s replication features to send files to Amazon S3, ShareBrowser can now keep a catalog of what’s been sent, so you can still search and preview media once it’s in cloud storage, even after it’s no longer on EVO.

Deeper Third-Party Storage Management

ShareBrowser can now access, search, tag, index, create proxies, and preview media on practically any NAS device—not just EVO. That means teams can now use the ShareBrowser web app, the Premiere Pro and After Effects panels, and the Final Cut Pro X workflow extension with other network storage systems to create a more seamless integration between EVO and other network storage servers.

Other improvements

• Added the ability to explore similar files by double clicking a tag.
• Added ‘sort by’ to web app so you can list files by name, volume, or path.
• Added support for audio file previews.
• Simplified administration by automating some setup tasks.
• ShareBrowser can now create preview proxies for multiple standalone EVO systems.


ShareBrowser 5.0.3 is available now and requires EVO OS version 6.1 or later. Current EVO customers can upgrade to ShareBrowser 5.0.3 by contacting SNS Support.
