Using File Servers

Now that you have a thorough understanding of filename structure, you can safely connect to just about any server in your facility and pass FCP files with ease. But how to connect and mount them? The steps differ depending on whether your facility’s server(s) are Mac- or Windows-based. We’ll go over the simple steps involved when using each kind of file server.

OS X (and OS 9) Servers

OS X servers use a special file protocol to transfer files called Apple File Protocol, or AFP. This protocol preserves file metadata during the trip. The servers themselves usually have their storage volumes formatted as HFS, so file metadata resides there as well. This is why transferring Mac files from a Mac to a Mac server and back is seamless.
