    Here's something 'new' and free : foolclip

    Basic mac OS app to join PRORES spanned RED clips... either as a new self contained PRORES file or as Reference 'foolclip'. Both will have same timecode and file name (reference clips will break if moved around so may need to be re-created if file hierarchy changes). May also have a small incompatibility with foolcat catalogs but I will check and fix that asap in foolcat.

    Requires OS X El Capitan or up... download it here :

    feedback welcome (this was part of new app project but since it takes time to finish and people needed a solution for PRORES spanning on FAT32 cards I thought it would be best to release it as a free tool...)

    Mikael, you are nothing short of amazing. Thank you for supplying this piece of the workflow puzzle.

    Out of curiosity, would this in theory work on Yosemite? I'm always reluctant and slow to upgrade due to driver issues, and El Cap is no longer accessible. Not keen on jumping to Sierra so soon. Just wondering. I'll start digging around for an El Capitan dmg in the meanwhile.

    Sorry nope as the reference clip method required some Quicktime API and features only existing in EL Capitan (AVFoundation).
    I try to always support older OS versions for my apps but in this case El Capitan was the best I could do...

    We have been searching for a way around the ProRes spanning issue. I am surprised there isn't much discussion about it. We are using LT files for multicam proxy editing off of Ravens. Is this link still working for Foolclip, because I can't seem to access it.
