Loader is a companion application for Final Cut Pro that streamlines the process of importing media.

Importing music, sound effects, graphics or movies into Final Cut Pro is a task that most editors do many times a day. In order to keep media files in one place for a particular project, it has traditionally been necessary to first copy the files to a media folder and then import the copied files into Final Cut Pro. Loader handles both of these processes automatically and adds some extra benefits.

Absolutely brilliant application. Deceptively simple at the outset, it's actually a lot more powerful then it lets on to be. If you use FCP a lot, then you know that sometimes different media management can be a nightmare. If you happen to accidently move or erase a file from what you think could be a very innocent place, and FCP happens to be pointing there for something, a lot of bad stuff can happen! Loader completely erases that eventuality. Yes, eventuality, because it will happen.

On the minus side, it does copy files. If your trying to save space and save every byte, then it might not be the best solution. Personally, it's worth the extra space. Backing up the project is perhaps the greatest asset to this app. One directory to backup all media for a particular project without any extra work pulling together stuff from all over creation. Like I said before, brilliant.

A little expensive for a utility, perhaps, but well worth it in saving yourself a lot of extra work.

Loader is a companion application for Final Cut Pro that streamlines the process of importing media.

Importing music, sound effects, graphics or movies into Final Cut Pro is a task that most editors do many times a day. In order to keep media files in one place for a particular project, it has traditionally been necessary to first copy the files to a media folder and then import the copied files into Final Cut Pro. Loader handles both of these processes automatically and adds some extra benefits.

Loader works alongside Final Cut Pro (launching and quitting automatically) and appears as a small tab on the left side of the screen. When tracks from iTunes or files/folders from the Finder are dragged onto the tab, it slides out to reveal a list of projects currently open in Final Cut Pro. After dropping the items onto the desired project, Loader copies them in the background to the assigned media folder linked to that project. In addition, those audio file formats that don't play nicely in Final Cut Pro (.caf, .m4a and mp3) are automatically converted to an AIFF file before import. When the copy is complete then the copied files are sent to a new bin in Final Cut Pro.

Loader also offers the ability to sort copied media into subfolders according to the file extension. By default, subfolders are automatically created for audio, graphics and movie file types and settings can be changed at any time to suit specific requirements.
