Content creators using Apple’s Final Cut Pro can now share files more quickly and securely with a new workflow extension from Alteon.io, a cloud-based hub designed specifically for content creators.
Rather than shipping hard drives between collaborators, users can upload files directly to Alteon’s secure cloud storage platform. With a single click, creators can then share that media with anyone in the world, setting permissions and optional expiration dates for added security.
After installing Alteon’s workflow extension for Final Cut Pro, users can download their media from Alteon directly into Apple’s non-linear editing (NLE) system, where they can view and edit their footage. Collaborators with access to the project in Alteon can then download the original file or an automatically generated proxy—which is especially useful when working with high-quality professional file formats such as Blackmagic RAW, which Alteon natively supports.
The workflow extension for Final Cut Pro is Alteon’s second extension for a NLE, following their extension for Adobe Premiere Pro, which the company revealed in September 2021.
