    Default Guy I have been working for,what does he mean by this?

    "Remember must be HD so need footage put on our ftp, or can grab off yours. Or sent on a hard drive or clips on retransfer."

    Up until now all the work I have done for him has been DV but now he wants HD which is not a problem but what does he mean by ftp????



    I have no formal film training so don't want to show my inexperience to him by asking. ANy ideas guys?

    ftp stands for file transfer protocol. He means a server that provides access to the video file.

    Sorry to sound a bit stupid, but what does that mean in plain talk?

    "We need access to the video file per Internet, hard drive or USB stick."

    It means you download an FTP program, something like FileZilla which is FREE and easy to use. You use it to log on to their server and drag & drop your HD file on to their server. FileZilla will take care for the transfer for you. You just need a login and password.

    I use FileZilla it's very simple to use and it's a free download. As Dave has said, you will need the IP address details and any login details such as passwords from him so you can get onto his computer and download the files. When you are ready you can then upload them to his computer with the same program.
