Post Haste is a simple app that started as a script for a post house I was working in. They needed a simple way to set up a project folder structure consistently for all the edit suites. I got to work in Apple Script, though quickly realized it was limiting; I opened up Xcode for the first time and got cracking. The response was great. Some people had some really great ideas for the app that would make it even better. Unfortunately, being a motion designer & video editor first, my coding skills were lacking to add the features I and others wanted to see in Post Haste.
Several months ago, I began a conversation with Jon Chappell, CEO of Digital Rebellion about Post Haste. A few tweets and emails later, and he was fast at work coding alphas of Post Haste 2.0.
From this point forward, all maintenance and future releases of Post Haste will be handled by Digital Rebellion. I am staying with the project as a co-project director with Jon.
So today, right now, you can get Post Haste 2.0 from Digital Rebellion’s site, still for free. Here’s some of the new features:
- Multiple Template Support
- Edit and Create New Template In-App
- Live Preview of Project Name
- New Template Files Allow Easy Sharing of Templates
- Optional History for Fields to Remember Previous Entries, Such as Clients
- Folder Breaks for a More Robust Folder Structure
- Assign a Hotkey to Launch Post Haste (Requires FCP Maintenance Pack 1.3 or Higher)
This is a huge update and Jon’s done a fantastic job. If you have any questions about this release, or the future of Post Haste, feel free to contact me or Jon at Digital Rebellion.
Thank you so much for your support of Post Haste 1.0-1.1. The enthusiasm & support from the post community is what made it possible to develop the software in the first place. Now, it will go even farther in the hands of a talented developer.
