1.1.8 Import from multiple storage cards

Compared with Pro 1, the largest change in Pro 2 is the addition of six TF (Micro SD) cards. The original files are stored in multiple storage cards. It’s more complex to manage all the files in Pro 2. In order to simplify the importing process, we’ve provided reading storage devices function in the camera. When the camera starts to read storage devices, user only needs to connect Pro 2 to a computer to transfer files from the storage cards to the computer by using the one-key import tool in Stitcher. There is no need to pull out any storage card.

Please note that after you have put your camera in storage device reading mode, and your computer has direct access to the directories of multiple storage cards, you can drag the folders in your SD card (not MicroSD) directly to Stitcher for use. However, this approach depends on the stability and reliability of the network, so it is strongly recommended to save the content to the local computer before splicing or editing.

Alternatively, if you have purchased an official card reader and hub package, you can take out the seven storage cards and insert them into the card reader and hub to connect to your computer, and then manually merge the folders with same name and copy them to your computer.
