Upload Specifications

Shift is primarily used for sharing proxies. Thus, our system possesses a limit of 30 GB per file. All files must have a container (e.g. be named "Video.mp4" and not "Video"), and be a supported type from the list below.

Audio files can contain multiple audio tracks, but Shift can only support 1 channel per track.

Supported File Types

Shift supports a wide range of different file types, including many of the most common video, audio, image and document formats, as well as archive files. 

Shift does not support project files (e.g. .aep, .prproj), nor does it support raw formats (e.g. .r3d). The below are supported for preview:
