Build Status

cardcpx is a specialized UI for copying files from a camera card to 1+ replicas. The replica copies happen concurrently, so if you are copying N bytes to R replicas, the time is O(N) instead of O(N * R).

The interface also has includes simple scene/take ingestion, which is stored in a CSV transaction log. Selects will be copied first, so you can do a proofing check on a fast disk while your import finishes.

cardcpx supports a flat directory structure as well as the RED camera directory structure. It assumes that your clip names do not overlap. Attempting to copy the same file name will not overwrite data.


You must have GNU Make, Go 1.2, and Ant installed. All other dependencies are included in the third_party directory. To build:


This produces cardcpx and ui/js.js.


From the project directory, run:

./cardcpx -storageDirs=/path/to/replica1:/path/to/replica2 -takeFile=path/to/takes.csv

then open http://localhost:8080/ in your browser of choice. The UI is restricted to localhost-only by default. For more details on options, run ./cardcpx -help.

The replicas given by -storageDirs are the directories that your clips will be copied to. -takeFile specifies the CSV file that will hold all the take information (i.e. take, scene, clip name, select).
