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


Use the iconik Storage Gateway app to connect your on-premise storage with iconik in the cloud.


First, enable the integration:

  • Settings > Integrations

Next, specify which Destination and file extensions OffShoot will use to include in your iconik sidecars.

"For transfers where Destination matches:"

List one or more Destinations that OffShoot 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. By volume name, e.g. RAID

  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 OffShoot will include in your iconik sidecars.

Add multiple extensions by separating them with a semicolon:


Include Elements:

Finally, tell OffShoot which Elements to include in your iconik sidecars:

{Source Name}{Location}{Shoot date}

File elements (e.g. {Filename}, {File extension}, etc.) are currently unsupported. OffShoot will ignore any unknown Elements during sidecar generation.

Iconik Preset (Pro)

This feature requires an OffShoot Pro license. Upgrade via the license manager, or via OffShoot > Settings > License. Check out all Pro features here.

OffShoot 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"]
