We only advise using Aspera if you're having slow upload performance or are working from your home network. Using the NBCU network connection, uploads speeds are capped from the NYC, LA, and London offices, so the regular way of uploading is faster for 98% of our users.
First, make sure you are using the latest version of Aspera from http://downloads.asperasoft.com/connect2/
- Navigate to the folder you'd like to upload to
- Click Create -> Upload with Aspera
- Select the file you'd like to upload
A proxy configuration may be required if you are uploading from the NBCUniversal network.
On your first upload, you will see a prompt from Aspera Connect asking to confirm and allow your connection to FineCut's Aspera server. Ensure the checkbox is selected and click Allow.
