I am trying to have a production level metadata value trigger a copy response to all the Assets in a specific production folder. I tried having a match up between a production level field value and a asset level field value and it does not appear to work.

Any suggestions?

I would imagine others would find this valuable?

I deal with world productions, I need to be able to pass assets to different regions via a copy response to a FTP device.

Thanks in advance.

    So you'll need to leverage some of the advance level scripting to get this done.

    For example,

    You could have a script that could pass a field value from a production to a field value of an assets that a child of that production, or a child of a nested production if you're using FCSvr 1.5.


    Give me a call offline, because there are way too many details and question I have before I can give you the specific directions on how to accomplish this.

    Hi there,

    I think I would add a metadata field on the production level (as an admin) named something like "copy production including related assets to" and then add a popup with a choice of something like "siteA, siteB,…".

    You could then add a response which finds related assets and copies them over to the server of choice.

    I am going to publish a little paper on archiving and backing up Final Cut Server / Xsan systems with Archiware PresSTORE within the next days, which describes a part of this workflow, too.

    But if you need somebody to implement the whole thing, I guess Nicholas is the right person to help you doing this.

    Regards,
