At its core, ShotPut Pro is a copy tool. You can not verify files or clips without making a copy. BUT have no fear, it’s a feature of TrueCheck! TrueCheck is our file analysis application for Mac.
It has five core features: comparing
files and folders for sameness and differences, creating reports
of volumes or attached media, doing deep searches
of attached media based on industry specific and user defined criteria and verifying
checksums and MHL reports.
