Hi all, have server and i am looking to do simple stock footage archiving. I shoot with RED R3d files as well as Panasonic P2 MXF files and Sony F900 Mpeg files.

So, FCserver is new to me and looks to be my best option to store and archive my digital media for stock footage.

Here is what i would ultimately like to do. Shoot footage and then i download to my portable hard drive. I come back home from a job and then hook into my main system...I have a folder for each job---for example: "Oct.2009 Sea of Cortez shoot" i want to load that folder to my storage main storage hdd's with the same folder name.

Now i want to have final cut server look at that folder with R3d files OR MXF files and then associate proxi files for me to work if i add metadata to the proxi--i have the proxi and original source media all in one place...i would even like to work with the original media in FCP and produce a prores422 file to send out to clients for viewing....BUT, i don't see that FCserver will read my original source media such as R3d & MXF files....

AM I MISSING SOMETHING? How do i utilize this amazing piece of software for a one man band that wants to basically pull in my digital media ---usually R3d; MXF or Mpeg and then associate proxi's with them and edit various versions---color/ins & outs ??

Any help or point in the right direction is HUGELY appreciated. I find NOTHING in this book about it.
Thanks, Johnny
