Pro Media Tools is a suite of workflow utilities focused on processing and managing media, with functions including detecting gamma shifts, editing QuickTime movie metadata, batch renaming files and more. It is compatible with Final Cut Studio, Avid Media Composer for Mac, and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 for Mac.
- Auto Transfer – Detects when a drive is inserted containing P2, RED, AVCHD or XDCAM media and can automatically copy it to your computer. It can copy to multiple locations at once and verifies the copied data to ensure its integrity.
- Batch Renamer – Renames multiple files at once with options including find and replace, frame renumbering, frame padding, and more.
- Edit Detector – Scans video files to locate where edits and scene changes occur. Can output QuickTime movies, marker lists, Final Cut Pro XML files, EDLs, and ALEs.
- Gamma Shift Detector – Detects gamma shifts between source and destination media. It will tell you if the shift directly affects the pixels in the image or if it is just a mismatch in metadata.
- Project Overview – Provides a complete overview of your Final Cut Pro project, allowing you view and batch edit all media, effects, and markers.
- QT Edit – Edits QuickTime movies. You can add and remove media, edit timecode information, modify chapters, change metadata and more. All changes are displayed in a real-time preview window.
- Quick Bins – Generates bins in sequence (e.g., 1-100) or sorts media into bins based on specified criteria (reel, scene, file type, etc). Very useful for quickly sorting an untidy mass of dailies.
- Render Watcher – Watches a set of directories, render files or Compressor batches and notifies you via a sound and Growl notification when renders are complete. Can be set to sleep, log out, or shut down the computer when all renders are finished.
- Timeline Tricks – Performs common tasks on sequences including replacing gaps with slugs, collapsing tracks, removing unused tracks, and stripping filters.
- Video Check – Scans a video file for illegal luminance values, flash frames, and audio peaks, and shows the exact frame where errors are occurring. Can output results to FCP marker lists, Avid locators, CSV, and text.
- Auto Transfer – Added a List metadata type that only allows you to choose specific values
- Auto Transfer – Added an option to include the camera number in auto-detected reel names (e.g. A010)
- Auto Transfer – Support for detecting volumes from DJI drones
- Auto Transfer – Fixed an issue where metadata columns in the Transfer view wouldn’t reorder when reordered from the Metadata pane
- Auto Transfer – Fixed an issue where files on transferred volumes may not retain their original modification dates
- QT Edit – Times in the Info tab are now shown in your local timezone (there is an option in preferences to force UTC)
- QT Edit – Limited the maximum number of metadata fields to 400 to prevent the app hanging if a movie has corrupt metadata
- Fixed an issue that could cause a “trial has expired” message to appear
- Various other bug fixes, tweaks and improvements
