FAQ

How should I select the best report option for me?

  • There are many factors that play into selecting the correct report option for your needs; here are some facts to consider:
  • The PDF option is great for detailed reports but it will add time to each job. If you only need thumbnails for the video files, select that option in the reports menu.
  • If speed is your number one concern, do not choose PDF reports with thumbnails. We suggest choosing the TXT or CSV option. If you still prefer a PDF, then do not select thumbnails.
  • A Summary report will generally just be one page long and only provide basic information.
  • A Detailed report will give details about each file.

How does the pause and resume feature in ShotPut Pro 6 work?

Right click on the job and select pause or resume. Jobs are paused after the file transfer in progress is complete, which ensures data integrity. Here are a few things you can and cannot do with this feature:

  • The application cannot be closed during a pause. The laptop lid maybe shut, but ShotPut Pro must stay running.
  • When a job is paused, hardware and cards can be removed or ejected for any length of time. They must be reconnected in to the same ports or readers to complete the job.

What are the differences between the verification options?

Below is a quick break down of each verification option:

  • XX Hash–64 is generally the fastest verification checksum and therefore the preferred option for Imagine Products. It is a non-cryptographic hash algorithm, working at speeds close to RAM limits. *Please note, not all production and post-production houses in the UK accept this checksum verification.
  • MD5 was the standard for years before XX Hash-64. Although it is not as fast as XX Hash-64, which is just as secure. MD5 is a 32-bit process and CPU dependent and therefore not as fast as XX Hash 64 (bit).
  • The SHA checksums are generally only used to keep continuity in workflows. They are rigorous checksums but are more antiquated that XX Hash-64 and MD5.
  • The file size comparison compares the file size of the source to the copy. It is faster than the checksums but does not produce a checksum verification file.
  • The Source checksum only (XX Hash-64) collects the source checksum but it does not actually compare the source and the copy. It does this for future reference of the checksum only. It is the fastest verification option but the least secure.
