New Features for the Final Cut Pro X Workflow Extension

Portal 4.3 also brings improvements to the Portal Final Cut Pro Workflow Extension. Editors have more ways to find the assets they need with new Portal collections and saved searches within the workflow extension. These new additions will help editors stay efficient as they create.

Easily Create Collections

Creating collections in Portal is easy with the new ability to simply enter the collection name and press enter to create. It’s also possible to create a collection with metadata in a single step by selecting “collections with metadata”. Every asset in the collection can inherit the collection metadata. To see the most recent collections first, use the new “sort by creation date” option. These features allow you to enrich your Portal system with less manual effort and can save you valuable time.

New Tasks Page

System administrators have another way to view what’s happening in Portal with the new tasks page. When performing a metadata batch update, the tasks page will show the progress. Standard users can see their own tasks here in a similar way. Selecting a task will show even more information about how the process was carried out. When a task is finished, users will receive a notification.

New Database Monitor Page

Portal admins can also monitor and purge databases in the new Database Monitor page. Admins can have an overview of database changes over time and configure purge intervals and purge directories for Vidispine data like API calls, jobs, and transfers. Monitoring databases in an easy to understand page will help administrators to have more control over their resources.
