transfer to Chyron Maxine (6 posts)

We currently PUT 1 file at a time and have to rename the file with a TGA and number extension for the Maxine to read. Is there anything new in FETCH 5 to do batch transfers?

Have you tried renaming all the files on the Macintosh first, and then transferring them to the server by dragging them all at once to the Fetch transfer window?
Fetch 5 does include some fixes that improve compatibility with Chyron servers. You may want to download it - you can test it for 15 days free - and see if it's an improvement for you. With it, you should be able to rename the files first on the Macintosh, and then upload them all at once. If you try that and cannot do that even with Fetch 5, let us know and we'll look into it.
I do have Fetch 5 and tried to rename the files and send. The files appear to go through with a TGA.#### name, but they don't appear in the Maxine. If I only rename by number (####) they won't transfer.

Have you contacted Chyron tech support about this?
They are unable to come up with a solution unfortunately. Thanks.
I'm not sure if this will help, but our Infinit allows batch sends if you rename the files as four-digit extentions...but while the "initial directory" is listed as 0.0/GRAPHICS/MESSAGE/ we rename the files 0.0/GRAPHICS/TGA/.0001
Yes, the name of the file is the name of the final directory itself, plus the chyron number.
Btw, you can't name the file this way from the application (say photoshop), you have to manually rename the file before you send it. (Otherwise Mac replaces the backslashes with ansi characters)
Good luck...(I can't wait until we switch to Deko!)
