They were shooting on Arri Alexa and the footage weighed 200 GB, so the next issue was file transfer. It never seemed to be a problem, but there were some difficulties.
Google search offered various articles that described a lot of file transfer options; I will describe only two of them:Dropmefileshttps://dropmefiles.com/
Dropmefiles advantages: no registration and hidden conditions.
Disadvantages: the need to divide the material into 4 parts, since the service works only with files up to 50 GB, and the terribly slow speed of both loading and downloading. I had to refuse this service.Takeafilehttps://takeafile.com/
This is a direct file transfer service with no restrictions on direct transfer between devices. There is only one advantage — no restrictions. Nope, they also have cool wallpapers on the website that are loaded from Behance.
The disadvantage is that both computers must be online all the time to transfer the file. And the client's laptop kept going to sleep, so the transmission was interrupted. All attempts to teach the client the hibernation settings weren't successful. This option was also abandoned. And by the way, the speed there also was far away from being great.
If we would continue searching for a proper file transfer service, it could affect our reputation in the eyes of the client. So we bought a subscription to Google Drive, which solved all our problems in less than 2 minutes and cost 219 rubles. If we'd known earlier, we wouldn't have spent time on those services.
