Best way to sync folders on a Synology NAS with Frame.IO

I'm looking for the most efficient way to have our Synology server upload to Frame.IO - basically like how the MacOS watch folders work (without using MacOS).

, that's a great question! To answer you with another question -- are you looking for advice on building something that can run on a Synology NAS, or looking for something out of the box? Especially if you have one of the newer Synologies (I have battle scars from fights with one of the old ARM models...), this shouldn't be too tough to solve.

We have a file server - RS3617xs+ . I ideally to have a way to watch certain folders for updates (basically a dailies folder for internal reviews). I like the idea that what ever gets updated in this folder (creating folders AND saving images/video) gets sync'd to Frame.IO for collaboration discussions. Does that make sense?


We'd really need something out of box as we have no development resources in house sadly

Hey there, I have a similar inquiry involving synchronization with Synology devices, but custom integration/development challenges are welcome! Hopefully the beginning to a fun project. Any thoughts on this

Can you describe a bit about your ideal outcome? For example, are you thinking uploader/downloader, watch folders, full sync...?

Andrew [email protected]



Likewise for projects - hopefully we can have some fun with this (I have lots of ideas for the future).

The ideal outcome would be to have specific folders (or shares) on Synology NAS with two-way sync to a project. Ingesting media in-house or remotely would have data appear synched on both systems. Remote workers can push/pull media from to work (using transfer/watchfolders, etc.), or in-house can utilize the internal NAS for immediate, high-speed access to media (highest quality scenario would be for digital cinema applications, just to give you an idea). Ultimately the goal would then be to "archive" the project on (storing in-house for some lifecycle before removing from internal systems).

Eventually I would like to incorporate integrations for programs like Kyno (which you already have) and other media asset managers/media transfer programs for better metadata, logging, archival features.



Also curious about watch folders for Windows platform...

A plex software can work here. I am using one on Windows, but I am sure that it also can work on macOS. Just try to speak with a specialist in this field, I am sure that he can help you with your problem. By the way, in case you decide to buy a Nas device, I can leave you the link from where I purchased mine. There it is Just check out the website. Hope you will find my message helpful. In case you have more questions, feel free to text me. I will help you with what I can.

Suggestion of Motion is a new web-based app that can help your production run smoothly from planning all the way through post-production– but it’s not perfect.

There’s a lot to love about, but there are a few areas that could use some polish. Here are five project management-specific improvements that I would love to see in

Project Templates uses folders to help you organize your project’s assets in a clear and consistent way. Casting videos go into Auditions, stills from location scouts go in Locations, and edited scenes goes into the Post folder for review during post-production.

Organize projects with folders

Using folders to create a structure for your project ensures that your production’s various assets are easy to find, but creating that structure can take time, especially for a complex production with a lot of assets to manage.

This is where project templates come in.

Instead of spending precious time manually creating the folders needed to organize a project’s assets, a template would allow us to build the perfect project structure instantly. We could have various templates for different types of projects (e.g. feature films, documentaries, news, etc.) that we can apply to a new project, allowing us to start working immediately.

Project templates

In addition to keeping our own projects consistent and organized, project templates would allow us to help others as well by allowing users to export and share project templates. This way, everyone can benefit from the best practices for managing different types of projects.

Display the Name of the Current Folder

Where am I?

That’s the question you’ll be asking yourself after stepping away from your project for a minute. Strangely, while there is a button jump up to the parent folder, the folder you’re currently in is a mystery.

Current folder is a mystery

At the moment, the only way to pinpoint your location in a project is to jump up to parent folder, and then hope that it’s easy enough to determine which sub-folder you were just in– was it Director’s Picks or Rejects?


Which folder was I in?

This back and forth obviously wastes valuable time, and the simple solution is to display the name of the current folder right at the top of the window.

Display the current folder's title

Even better, could also display breadcrumbs that show you all of the parent folders of the sub-folder you’re currently viewing. The names of the parent folders should be clickable so that you can instantly navigate to any of them, rather than slowly jumping up one parent folder at a time.

Display the current folder's title and its parent folders

It’s just a simple tweak, but displaying the current folder’s name would dramatically improve your productivity in, especially when working on complex projects with a deep hierarchy of nested folders.

Project Tree-View

Another improvement that would make it much easier to navigate through a complex project is an expandable tree-view of our project’s folder structure.

Imagine your 3 levels deep in your project’s folder structure– say, Planning/Locations/Hobbiton— but you want to jump over to yesterday’s rushes (in Production/Rushes/Scene 11). Currently, this is what you would need to do in

  1. Click ← Locations button to navigate up to the parent directory.
  2. Click ← Planning button to navigate up the parent directory.
  3. Click ← Project button to navigate up to the project’s main directory.
  4. Double-click the Production folder to go into it.
  5. Double-click the Rushes folder to go into it.
  6. Double-click the Scene 11 folder to go into it.

Why did you want to view this folder again?

With a tree-view of your entire project structure, you can see all folders and subfolders at a glance. This allows you to navigate to any folder in your project with a single click.

View your project's entire structure at a glance

An overview of our project’s structure would also help users find what they’re looking for more quickly, as a folder’s contents are currently a mystery unless you navigate into the folder itself.

Keyboard Navigation

You know that is built specifically for video production professionals because it features industry-standard keyboard shortcuts that we all know and love, like the video player’s JKL shuttle controls. Keyboard Shortcuts

Using keyboard shortcuts is often faster than reaching for the mouse, so it would be awesome to see’s project view get some keyboard-enabled love.

For example, allowing users to use the arrow keys to select different thumbnails would provide a quick and intuitive way to move between clips in the project view.

Select items via keyboard

Additionally, pressing the spacebar should open the selected item in the Quicklook player. Currently, the spacebar opens the clip that the mouse is hovering over, rather than the selected clip. This can lead to some confusion, especially if you’re not paying attention to where the mouse cursor is.

Dropbox Integration somehow manages to upload your media at lightning speed, but even the fastest uploads can be tripped up by the random internet hiccup.

When you’re uploading feature-length files for final review, restarting a failed upload due to a glitchy connection is not something you want to be dealing with before the big premiere.

Dropouts in connectivity can stall media uploads

That’s why we need integration with cloud storage providers like Dropbox.


Dropbox’s client runs on your computer and uploads your files in the background, which means you don’t need to keep your browser window open until the upload is finished. If your internet connection goes out, Dropbox pauses uploading. When your internet connection is restored, uploading resumes without skipping a beat.

By integrating with a cloud storage provider like Dropbox (or Google Drive, etc.), users could simply select the Dropbox file they want to copy into their project, and will handle the transfer in the background.

This is the best of both worlds– worry-free uploads of large files with Dropbox, and simple asset management in’s Future is Bright is the production management app I wish I always had, and we’re already seeing benefits from using it in internal and client projects (case studies coming soon).

With these improvements to’s project management functionality, filmmakers will be able to spend less time managing their project and more time focusing on what’s really important– telling a great story.

More guides and case-studies of how you can use keep your productions running smoothly from planning to premiere are coming soon. Sign up below to get exclusive updates on these resources before anyone else.

…with Hedge’s new integration.

Last year’s Foolcat and Parashoot integrations have been quite the success, so we’re adding a few more to Hedge. First up is

If you’re not familiar with it lets you and your clients share, review, and annotate clips, making feedback a breeze. Go check it out, it will make your life easier.

Straight to cloud

Because can store media files for you in their cloud, uploading proxies directly to is done pretty often. Imagine you’re shooting a commercial, and your customer can watch along with the shots as they’re being offloaded, annotated, and have the editor work directly from the proxies you just uploaded. Pretty sweet, isn’t it? is built on top of AWS S3 and Glacier, and as such acceleration is a hot topic. Many cloud vendors offer accelerated uploaders, and is no exception: their macOS app is by far the fastest way to get media into

At Hedge, we dislike reinventing the wheel, and there’s not much use in trying to recreate an uploader. Especially not when it’s already stellar and comes with watch folders😲

Watch Folders did something quite smart with their macOS app: as long as you’re working on a project, chances are you’ll have a local copy of the footage. The footage will most likely be available when not yet done uploading. Therefore, because it is a one-way sync, watch folders are an elegant mechanism to automate uploads and resume them if needed.’s watch folders can live everywhere, on every drive you have connected, so setting one up for each project is a breeze. Why make life harder?

The Integration

Hedge automatically detects if you have the app installed and if any watch folders are set up. If so, Hedge will show you each watch folder as a discrete Destination-only disk:

If not, or if anything is not set up correctly in the app, you’ll know directly within Hedge. Because you’re basically doing a local transfer, you get all of Hedge’s copy goodness, and all of’s upload goodness. Best of both worlds 😁

The integration is available for Hedge on macOS, in the new 19.2 update. Fire up your in-app updater or download a fresh copy from our site.

Deliver Faster with New Frame.IO Watch Folders—Even with Interruptions

With a new transfer app, aims to make video uploads faster and more affordable all at once.

Waiting on a file to upload to send to clients can be torture when under deadline. And yet, you have to upload video content to a cloud dozens—sometimes hundreds—of times in a typical post process. Maybe it's dailies at the top of the show, or elements to a VFX artist, or final full res deliveries at the end of a job, every filmmaker is used to waiting on that upload progress bar.  To make it easier, there are consumer level tools like Dropbox that work wonders but are sometimes slower than we want. There are pricy professional tools like Aspera that offer better speed and security, but at a cost. But the process of delivering media via the web remains a pain point for many. thinks it has a solution.

After a massive ground up refresh only a few weeks ago, is back with another new feature designed around cloud delivery. Called Watch Folders, it's a desktop app built to run full time on your local machine and upload files to the cloud automatically in the background, with a menu bar icon. By moving to a constantly running application is able to enable some exceptionally useful features including interruptable uploads. Lose internet, need to move your laptop to another location, or just run out of power? The upload will restart once the machine is open and running again. Files can be private, or shared automatically with a team with notifications sent upon upload. 

The real key feature here is speed. While some of the features we see here are available elsewhere, by combining them all together into one, and then working at the server level to speed up the process, this tool can be a real killer app for filmmakers. For instance, Dropbox almost never uses anything more than a fraction of the bandwidth available to it, even when set to "unlimited" upload. If you aren't a filmmaker, this likely hasn't been a problem, but working with large 4K video files this can be downright painful. By focusing on speed and taking advantage of every ounce of bandwidth every step of the way, targets filmmakers with a tool that we will all likely appreciate. are claiming 5X speed boost over Dropbox: if that bears out in reality, that's going to be huge.

Check out the blog for more details.

Tech Specs

  • Privacy and notifications enabled for private clips.
  • MacOS native application
  • 150GB-file-in-under-an hour
  • Up to 2X faster than Signiant and Aspera, Up to 5X faster than Dropbox
