Video on Setting up TheLuggage

Friday, July 13th, 2012

The Luggage is shaping up to be the go-to packaging software for Mac Admins. Getting started can be daunting for some, though, so I’ve narrated a video taking you through the steps required to set it up. Not included:
- Getting a Mac account (while this process can mostly be done for free, it’s the best and easiest way if you do have access)
- Downloading the tools from the Mac Dev Center (Command Line Tools and Auxiliary Tools for Xcode)
- Choosing your favorite text editor (no emacs vs vi wars, thanks)

Happy Packaging! Please find us on Twitter or leave a comment if you have any feedback.

318 CatDV Installation Checklist

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

318 has been doing a lot of work with CatDV recently and as such, we are starting to build a large library of assets for the product. We have built a checklist for the installation and planning of a CatDV asset management system. The checklist is a quick guide to server installation, worker nodes, client configuration, using SSL, watch folders, conditions, queries, conversations and processing.

The checklist can be downloaded here:

Using Transmogrifier to Extend Final Cut Server

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

Using Transmogrifier With Final Cut Server

Transmogrifier is a python framework created to assist with the importing and exporting of assets from Final Cut Server to various export formats (currently YouTube and BrightCove are supported).

Getting Started

The primary interface to the Transmogrifier framework is provided via the executable file ‘transmogrifier’. Here is the usage output for this file:

transmogrifier [-f configfile] [-d supportdir] [-a action] [-t mediatitle]
transmogrifier -o BrightCove -t MyAsset [-f configfile] [-d supportdir] [-a action]
transmogrifier -o BrightCove -a preflightCheck|upload -t MyAsset [-f configfile] [-d supportdir]
transmogrifier -a createSupportFolders [-o YouTube] [-f configfile] [-d supportdir]

-h — displays this help message
-f filepath — Use specified config file
-o target — output target, i.e. ‘BrightCove’, ‘YouTube’
-d supportdir — path to support folder, this is typically read out of the configuration file
-t title — title of the asset.
-a action — Perform the requested action. default: “upload”
