As I know setting up a hot folder and auto ingest is possible however automatic FTP upload is not a feature of PM. (Kirk will correct me if I'm wrong.)

If my knowledge is correct an option may be to find a method to mount the FTP directory to appear for PM as a local folder in the file system this way PM can use it as a destination folder for the live ingest.
An other option is to find an FTP client that can monitor a folder and upoload from it so PM can catch live ingest the photos coming in put them to another folder and the FTP client can handle them.

Anyway an FTP feature in live ingest should be a good addition I would definietly support.
Working on Mac, OSX, iOS and with some Canons.
Allways shooting RAW.

For "Hot-FTP" you can also use a script.
Code: [Select]
Monitor Folder for new files
send them via FTP
move the files to a "sent-folder" and start over again.


If you are using an eye-fi card there is the FTP-feature already integrated.
BUT in this case they are not filled with IPTC-Data.

Changed from behind the cam to one who buys images as I started to run. No cam or lens left.

I suppose the goal would be to have PM add IPTC info and then to the FTP upload - however it would be good only for a general captioning if automated - but still much better then nothing. And don't forget naming and other options that can come quite handy with PM.
