"Great Product for Fast Transfer"

What do you like best?

I've enjoyed using ShotPut Pro to transfer my daily video deposition clips to my portable hard drive. As I can create different processes to transfer my videos.

What do you dislike?

I cannot stand the initial source interface window. The source window does not allow users to sort/select their source videos by date, size, or any other attribute. I have submitted a mock-up screen of what I believe would be better than what they have. Similar to the Finder window view.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give the source media window the ability to sort the selections by file type, size, date, etc. As an HUGE bonus feature, give users the ability to upload ONLY NEW video. (Do a file comparison of source media with the target destination; if the filename, size, type are equal, grey-out the selections.)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Speeding up the ingestion of lots of video clips to my target and backup drives simultaneously.

Inexpensive, easy to use. The industry standard.

Checksums, logs and easy data management. This program is what all my peers use, unless they are deluded. (Which some are)

"Works well but it’s slow."

What do you like best?

Easy to set up different offloading presets. Decent reports. Standard in the TV industry for lower-budget projects.

What do you dislike?

Verification times are slow compared to other offloading software using the same checksum algorithms. Lots of little bugs in the software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backing up media securely and reliably is the main problem solved with ShotPut. Using an industry recognized piece of software helps producers and camera teams trust the process in using.
