Hedge's iconik integration automatically generates iconik sidecar files for transferred clips.


  • Hedge 22.2 or newer
Use the iconik Storage Gateway app to connect your on-premise storage with iconik in the cloud.


First, enable the integration:
  • Preferences > Integrations (macOS)
  • Settings > Integrations (Windows)
Next, specify which Destination and file extensions Hedge will use to include in your iconik sidecars.

"For transfers where Destination matches:"

List one or more Destinations that Hedge will create your iconik sidecars on. If you don't specify a Destination, sidecar files are created on all Destinations.
There are two ways to specify a Destination:
  1. 1.
    By volume name, e.g. RAID
  2. 2.
    By folder path. Use wildcards (*) for more flexibility, e.g. */proxies
Add multiple Destinations by separating them with a semicolon:
Backup 1;Backup 2;Backup 3

"Add clips when file extension matches:"

Adding file extensions narrows down which files Hedge will include in your iconik sidecars.
Add multiple extensions by separating them with a semicolon:
Include Elements:
Finally, tell Hedge which Elements to include in your iconik sidecars:
{Source Name}{Location}{Shoot date}
Hedge will ignore any unknown Elements during sidecar generation.

Hedge Pro users can define preset-specific iconik settings as follows:
"iconikSidecarElements" : [ "{ProjectID}", "{Project}", "{Season}", "{Date}", "{Camera}", "{Card}", "{Type}" ],
"iconikSidecarExtensions" : [".R3D",".MOV"],
"iconikSidecarDestinations" : ["Backup 1","Backup 2"]
