Alright, but no documentation

I bought this program thinking it would be a great use of my new iPad and macbook combination for DIT work on set. I attempted to create a couple of test projects using my Mac Pro on my home network and got very little response. I double-checked my settings and files and everything seemed correct. Eventually with experimentation, I got a couple of clips to work. I contacted support 11 days ago and no response. There is also no external metadata editor for the server side. Any metadata editing must be done in the iPad. There is also no way to export the data into anything useful.

*UPDATE* I fInally reached someone through the email listed on the app page instead of the website. He was very helpful and quick to respond to questions. It seems best to send files through compressor instead of RedCine, which is what I was doing. Still feels like early software. I am waiting for version 2.

Good idea, but seems abandoned.

Hasn't been updated since June, no iOS 6 update, repeated crashes, and issues with the server software as well. If you want to stream proxies to an ipad I would recommend using Air Video Server as it is more reliable. It doesn't have all of the meta data that allows the client to rate and review clips, but in the many times I've used this app (frustratingly) on set, no one has actually rated clips. It's mostly used for continuity checks.

Great app!

I used this on my last shoot, and even though I only used it as video play back for the director and for the clients it was great, the director learnt the interface very quickly and even the clients were doing it them selves. I gave each one an iPad, and they were independent, they could watch and re-watch when they felt like it, make notes of which takes they liked, and I only had to show them once or twice how to do it.
I had it working with the Teradek wireless with my RED One.
It was a really great shoot.
Thanks Michael for making this app.
