Connect ShotHub to frame.io C2C

ShotHub allows linking Livegrade cloud projects to Frame.io Camera to Cloud “C2C”. As soon as this connection is established, new looks saved in the connected desktop applications Livegrade Pro or Studio are automatically transferred as CDLs to the connected Frame.io C2C project.

Create a Livegrade cloud project in ShotHub

Before linking ShotHub to Frame.io C2C, the Livegrade desktop application should be connected with a Livegrade cloud project so that uploading looks to the ShotHub is automatically enabled. You can find a detailed description of the initial setup in this article:  Connect Livegrade to ShotHub

Connect the Livegrade cloud project with Frame.io C2C 

Open your web browser to login into ShotHub with your Pomfort Account credentials. Choose the Livegrade cloud project that you want to link to a Frame.io C2C project and open the project information panel that is accessible via the project info button [i] in the header bar. Next, click the button [Connect] to link the cloud project to Frame.io. After logging in to Frame.io, ShotHub lets you select an account and project to establish a new connection for the look transfer.

Note: Please note, that only project admins of a ShotHub cloud project are authorised to set up the connection to Frame.io while other project members only see the established connection.
Additionally, you should ensure that the Frame.io project you want to connect with has enabled “C2C connections” in the project settings and that you have appropriate permissions to access the project.

Select account and project to connect with

When ShotHub is linked to a Frame.io C2C project, every new or updated look saved in the look library of the Livegrade desktop application is automatically uploaded to ShotHub’s shot library and instantly transferred as CDL to the linked Frame.io C2C project. The CDLs are named according to the “Clip Identifier” as specified in the Livegrade desktop application and sorted by date and project. (It’s possible to connect multiple Livegrade cloud projects to one Frame.io C2C project to collect looks from different units.)

Frame.io C2C project with transferred CDLs

Some grading modes in Livegrade are not suitable for export as CDLs. Such looks will not transfer to  the Frame.io C2C project. For more information, take a look at the Livegrade Knowledge base: Exporting look metadata.

Edit the link between the Livegrade cloud project and Frame.io C2C 

If you want to edit the Livegrade cloud project from Frame.io, access the project information panel a click on “…” right to the name of the connected Frame.io C2C project to either disconnect it or update the connection by selecting the connection to another Frame.io account and/or project.

Edit Connection in Project Information Screen

Note: In case the C2C connection was paused from the Frame.io project you need to update the connection to make sure that the connection will be re-established after the C2C connection was resumed in Frame.io.
