Clipbrowser .vs. Shotput

Well for one thing, you don't need an Intel Mac to use it. You can copy to 3 drives at once with error checking, BUT! . . . you can only do one card at a time from your camera.

I believe you can't view the clips in Shotput as you can in ClipBrowser.

You could use the latest version of VLC Player though for previewing them.

I also find that not all Shotput files show up in XDCAM Transfer 2.7. They always show up when I transfer using Clip Browser.

I am using a PC laptop and my interest is in offloading cards in the field is I need to reuse the cards. Being in the IT industry for many years, I am insistant on having proper backups. If offloading the the field I would want at least 2 backups to external drives. I have an expresscard slot for the SxS and want to quickest solution to get 2 copies from there. My understanding is that Shotput can copy to multiple destination automatically once I set that up. The other method without Shotput would be to use Clipbrowser to copy from SxS to the first drive and then I can just do an inter Windows copy from the first drive to the second?

Will Shotput do this faster?
