I have downloaded the package at

http://developer.apple.com/samplecode/FinalCutServerIntegrationSample/

read the readme, which is actually a manual, and set up everything accordingly. And now I have a very cool web app for review & approve with the same look and feel as the client. This is such a great feature that I really have no clue why apple is hiding it. There are third party apps that are less cool and cost a lot and don't send comments and flag back to FCsvr as this web app does.

And the best thing: it's very easy to install.

    Willard,

    Thanks for the post! So far everything's going VERY smooth. I just ran into 1 issue. If you could, look at page 13 of the instructional pdf. I pulldown "Transcode Setting" in the response window and my only two options are: no "conversion" or "none".

    Any ideas? I hate to go further without figuring this out.

    THANKS!!!

    Thanks a million or the info !!

    I have been sniffing around for this information for a while. Ok I have installed everything, got Ruby running, got all the transcoding and file creations running, I send to web, I can see the job in the jobs window, it creates the JPG, QT small and Large and spits out a XML, then nothing, I can see in terminal that it is rendering the assets, I can even goto the directory and see the thumbnails, QTs and XMLs, but the application @ :3000/clips doesn't show the assets. ????

    Any ideas ?

    You say you can see the thumbnails in the directory - in public/media/cache/thumbs or public/media/thumbs? The first is where FCSVR writes them to, but the latter is where Rails reads them from. The add_asset.rb script does the copy.

    Is add_asset.rb runing properly? You have to look in Logs it doesn't show up in Jobs.

    You can also use the Terminal to look at the database that backs the Rails site to see if records got added.

    Cheers for the prompt reply !!!!! you must be in London just about to go home or the East side of the states

    Checked logs, ran fine, looked in fcsvr/public/media/.... & there is thumbs, qt in their respectable folders - weird.

    how do you tap into the database via Terminal ?

    Thank you in advance

    If you are in the review directory the command is: sqlite3 db/development.sqlite3

    After the 'sqlite>' prompt, type: select * from clips;

    You should get one or more lines. If not, nothing actually got into the db. Type .quit to exit sqlite3.

    Did you remember to reload the localhost:3000/clips page in your browser?

    I've got this sample code running fine on Leopard Client - it does come with sqlite3. The trouble I had (and this might only apply to Client not Leopard Server) was updating the sqlite3-ruby gem: it would refuse to compile.

    That's because Leopard's Xcode Tools need to be installed to compile the gem. Once they were installed the "sudo gem update sqlite3-ruby" command worked just fine.
