Exporting without Tentacle Hardware

4.64K viewsSoftwareExport hardware software


I transcode footage and apparently the audio guy on set used tentacle technology during a shoot. I downloaded the software, drag and dropped the footage and audio but, when I tried to export, I got this message:

To unlock export please connect a switched-on Tentacle via USB. The Tentacle needs to run at least firmware 3.70. Also make sure that Tentacle Setup does not try to access the unit at the same time.

We don’t have anything to plug into a USB. Is there any other way to export?

Thanks in advance!
