BURBANK, CA — Content creators using Apple’s Final Cut Pro can now share files more quickly and securely with a new workflow extension from Alteon.io, a comprehensive cloud-based hub. Rather than shipping hard drives between collaborators, users can upload files directly to Alteon’s secure cloud storage platform. With a single click, creators can then share media with anyone in the world, setting permissions and optional expiration dates for added security.
After installing Alteon’s workflow extension for FCP, users can download their media from Alteon directly into Apple’s nonlinear editing system, where they can view and edit their footage. Collaborators with access to the project in Alteon can then download the original file or an automatically-generated proxy. The result is a faster, easier way to share and store media, bypassing cumbersome IT setups and physical hard drive shipments.
The workflow extension for Final Cut Pro is Alteon’s second extension for a popular NLE, following their extension for Adobe Premiere Pro, which the company revealed in September 2021.
The extension is available for free, and then there are several subscription plans to choose from. The Basic plan is free and provides 10GBs of storage for unlimited projects. The Standard plan is $9.99/user/month and offers 250GBs of storage, along with unlimited projects. And the Premium plan is $29.99/user/month, providing up to 1TB of storage for unlimited projects. Enterprise pricing is also available.
