Hedge's integration for Assimilate SCRATCH automatically adds transferred clips to a target SCRATCH project. Available on macOS, support for Windows is in the works.
Hedge 21.2 or newer
Once Assimilate SCRATCH is installed on your Mac, enable the integration in Preferences.
Next, specify the Destination and file extensions for clips you want to be added to your SCRATCH project.
Specifies which Destination's clips you want to be added to your SCRATCH project. If you don't specify a Destination, the
First Destination your Source is transferred to will be used. You can specify in two ways:
By volume name, e.g.
A folder path. Use a wildcard (*) for more flexibility, e.g.
Narrows down which files are added to your SCRATCH project by setting one or multiple file extensions.
Finally, tell Hedge which SCRATCH
group , and
timeline the clips will be added to:
Project: the name of the SCRATCH project (must be an existing project).
Group: the name of the group in the SCRATCH project. If this group does not exist, a new one will be created.
Timeline: the name of the timeline within a group in a SCRATCH project. If this group does not exist, a new one will be created.
These elements can be used when setting Group and Timeline:
Once you're done configuring the integration, transfer your media. When a transfer completes, clips are added to your SCRATCH project.
Hedge will add the following metadata to your clips:
All Source Review metadata
By default Hedge uses the default SCRATCH watch folder location:
If you change SCRATCH's watch folder path, you'll also need to tell Hedge about it. Do so in Terminal, with this command:
defaults write nl.syncfactory.Hedge.Mac SFIIntegrationsScratchDefaultsWatchFolderKey <path/to/the/new/watchfolder>
To check the current setting use this command:
defaults read nl.syncfactory.Hedge.Mac SFIIntegrationsScratchDefaultsWatchFolderKey
Often, the dailies computer is not the same as the offload computer. When that's the case, set up an network between the two computers over WiFi, and share SCRATCH's watch folder on the dailies computer over the network. Then, point Hedge to the shared folder. Alternatively, you could use rsync to sync two watch folders over the network.
