Im trying to copy a finished project with multiple nested sequences to an archive using Project Manager.
It seems to copy fine, but when I go back and trash the original files, the newly-archived project shows nested sequences as being offline. When I click Properties the offline sequences point back to the old file locations.
I want to put a concise, functioning timeline with all resources, nested or otherwise, in another location. Project Manager is supposed to do this, right? I know it doesn't move linked After Effects files (though in a dynamically-linked suite it would be nice if it did) and that I have to relink those manually. But my nested sequences are complex, sometimes several layers deep. Is there a way to get Project Manager to archive them intact with the rest?
Any advice is much appreciated.
More context: The project is a time lapse that was imported from batches of jpegs. Project Manager seems to be copying everything--jpegs and all--to the new location, just as it should. Problem is, the copied project still looks for the jpeg sequences in their old locations. I need to redirect the timeline to look for the jpeg sequences in their new, copied locations.
This might sound like an obscure problem, but anyone whose imported a time-lapse from stills in Premiere and later archived it to another location might have struggled with this and perhaps know a fix. When I try to manually relink the files, sequences get dropped (blacked-iout) or reordered.
Is there an easy way to instruct the copied timeline to link to the copied jpeg sequences?
