Send image, audio and text files in one folder
At latakoo, we understand that your workflow needs extend beyond moving video files efficiently and easily. Sometimes you have audio files, such as voice over or music files, photos, or graphic images that should be grouped.
That’s why we developed the grouping function in latakoo.
What is Grouping?
With the Group setting, the latakoo cloud stores these files in a single folder, where they can be shared and downloaded as a zip folder.
Because of the size limitations of a browser download (typically 2GB), we would recommend that you only send files such as photos, audio files and documents using the group function.
Because of their size, videos are best sent individually or stitched.
In addition, the latakoo Flight app download/encode workflow is not available for videos uploaded as a group.
Grouping starts at the upload
You make the decision to group file when upload them with the latakoo Flight application.
In the desktop app, drag and drop the file or folder of files into the application window. Then select the type of Upload.
Select Group to place the files in a zipped folder. Then, choose the type of Metadata form. Individual means that there will be a separate set tags and descriptions for each file in the group. Group metadata form means that all the files in the group will contain the same description and tags.
As your files are uploading, you’ll see a “G” icon, signaling that these will be grouped together in latakoo Pilot.
On Pilot, you’ll be able to see thumbnails of the photos or you’ll see icons as a placeholder for audio files.
Downloading Group Files
Grouped files must be downloaded as a zipped folder. Select “Create zip folder” to prepare the files for download.
When the zip folder is ready, the button will change to “Download zip folder.” Then, the zip folder will download through your browser. Depending on your settings, it will prompt you for a location to save the folder or will download to your default location.
Grouping is another way that latakoo adapts to your workflow, moving files efficiently for professional video teams.
