Key Features of Version 1.8

  • Live Folders

    Add current working folders that are updated frequently as Live Folders. All the media in Live Folders are imported immediately, and the changes in the Finder level are updated automatically. You can set whether to use automatic or manual scan in the preferences.

    On-the-fly Project Sharing

    All the media with metadata (tags, annotations, and roles) can be sent to FCPX quickly. Drag-and-drop FCPX Project (or Event) between FCPX and KeyFlow Pro. Editors can share current working Projects seamlessly in a single Event.
  • Audio Annotations

    You can now annotate audio files. KeyFlow Pro generates a waveform and it makes it really easy to see. This can be very helpful when you’re trying to find a specific segment of audio to annotate.


    You can selectively mark sections within a clip as a Favorite (★) and send to FCPX directly using drag-and-drop. Then, you can use the sort options to quickly show only the portions of a long clip you specify.
  • Preview Color-Corrected R3D

    KeyFlow Pro creates color-corrected thumbnail images and preview videos when importing RED(R3D) files. (if RMD file already exists in the folder.)

    Solo and Mute Controls

    For the video with multi-track audio, you can isolate audio tracks with solo and mute controls. (Only if the preview file is encoded with Audio Pass Through option.)
** KeyFlow Pro 1.8 UPDATE CAUTIONS **
- All the shared libraries and clients must be updated to ver.1.8. Servers and/or clients are not compatible with earlier versions of KeyFlow Pro.
- The KeyFlow Pro library should be stored into the local hard disk for the best scan performance of the Live Folders.

Key Features of Version 1.7

  • Enhanced Uploads

    Remote upload capabilities are no longer limited to in-library storage. Remote users can now upload and select a store-to location in - or out - of the KeyFlow Pro library. Storage locations are remembered at the project and group level, making media management more collaborative for large and small teams.

    In-App Purchases

    In anticipation of future features, we’re changing the amount of users that can simultaneously access a KeyFlow Library to 5. This gives larger organizations a simpler, more streamlined method of volume licensing.

  • Final Cut Pro X Clip Metadata

    Final Cut Pro X users rejoice! Now you can add metadata to files BEFORE you send to FCPX, ensuring your data goes with you to the next library, and the next, and the next (you get the idea).

    Why repeatedly assign roles in Final Cut Pro X? Assign Dialogue, Music, Sound Effect roles and more once in Keyflow Pro and they’ll carry on to every FCPX library you use that media with forever.
  • Batch Renaming
