Best way for post-production teams to transfer their files in 2024

As production moves into post-production, file sizes may decrease, but the involvement of various stakeholders intensifies and the transfer of files escalates as they move between editorial, VFX, colour, sound, and finishing stages, with transfers occurring frequently both internally and externally with different post houses and stakeholders.

In the past, many post facilities looked to FTP for media file sharing and some still do. However, FTP has severe limitations. It lacks optimisation for media workflows, leading to slow transfer speeds and unreliable performance. Security concerns also arise, particularly when collaborating with larger studios, where safeguarding sensitive content is paramount. Whilst there are now more options available for post teams, many are expensive and complex to use.
