YouSendIt Plugin for Final Cut Pro

August 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

yousenditThanks to the Digital Production Buzz for cluing me in on a new plugin from yousendit.com for Final Cut Pro. When I was at the HOW conference in Atlanta in 07 a rep from yousendit.com told me about this. But it was only in development at that time. Here is the info from there site.

1. Start Final Cut Pro and select a project that you want to send.
2. Choose Export > Send by YouSendIt… from the File menu or Control-click on one of your files and choose “Export > Send by YouSendIt…” from the contextual menu.
3. Make any changes to the media assets, then click Export.
4. This launches Express. Enter your email address and password to sign in.
5. After you sign in, enter the email address of the recipient and optional subject and message.
6. Click the ‘SEND IT’ button to send the files. A progress bar will be displayed showing the file upload progress.

I loaded it up to my Macbook Pro and my G5. The G5 didn’t work. The Macbook Pro worked. Interesting because these are the system requirements…

1. Mac OS X v10.4.9 or later
2. Final Cut Pro 6.0.3
3. Hard disk requirement: 1MB

They also have plugins for Aperture, iphoto and Photoshop CS3. I think I would use yousendit with those applications more than FCP. Video files are just to big…but I’m glad to see the progression. Who knows maybe our internet will someday get fast enough where we can send large files without paying large user fees.

Frank Capria posted about this and I agree with his thoughts on it too. Thanks Frank.
