Portland, OR – October 15, 2014 –Red Giant today released Offload, a brand new standalone application for reliable backup of footage in the field. Available alone or as part of the Red Giant Shooter Suite, Offload makes the often unreliable and tedious task of backing up files from camera card to laptop and external drives a hassle-free experience. Offload is media and camera agnostic, and requires no additional equipment used in the normal footage offload process.

"When your work sits on a tiny, plastic camera card, anything can happen, on location or in transit,"said Shooter Suite Product Manager Randon Morford. "Too often, shooters discover that their footage has been lost through a corrupted offload process or through damaged hardware. Red Giant Offload eliminates the stress that every filmmaker goes through between shooting and delivery - it gives you the peace of mind that your footage was safely copied with the added benefit of automating an additional backup."

“I've experienced hard drive corruption before and lost a huge amount of data,” said filmmaker Trevor McIntosh, who has also worked as a DIT. “Offload's backup and checksum features make me feel safe about my footage.”

Unlike a typical footage “copy and paste” backup operation, Offload gives users clear visual assurances that their footage has been safely copied. The user interface features progress indicators as well as footage thumbnails, and offers file verification notices so that users are assured that their work has been safely transferred to disk. Users can also opt to make an additional, automated backup of their footage. Reliability does not supersede simplicity, however - rather it's a marriage of the two. The app is clean, simple to use and requires just a few clicks of the mouse to get Offload going.

“Offload knows data wrangling isn’t my day job,” said filmmaker Jason Wingrove. “It's not just the easiest, safest way to copy my footage, but it’s also the best on-set app for letting me stay on set!”

Pricing & Availability
Red Giant Offload is now available for just $49 USD. Crossgrade (for existing BulletProof users): $29. For current Shooter Suite owners (v.12.5), Offload now comes as a free addition.
