When adding video files and photos to projects does it matter if the name of the folders containing these change. I was going to file the photos for a video project in a specific folder. I assume when I add files to the project they are really links back to the folders and files selected. I assume the actual file is not copied and the link becomes part of the PrE10 Adobe project folders. I had worked on a project, inserted photos and video files , and then later renamed the primarily folder of photos to include the most current date. When I opened the PrE10 project, it wanted me to locate the photos. I think the link wasn't there since I changed the primary folder name with a new date . I didn't change the name of the individual photos.
If the file/path of selected video files and photo files is changed will it remove the link for the source file? If so, I would need to organize the files and never change names of folders or locations. I intend to burn the projects to DVDs, but if I ever want to open a project, I would need to be sure it isn't moved from within the C drive or to external hard drives.
Before, I used PrE1 and downloaded the video files directly from the video camera, onto the PC using PrE1 software. I had the Mini DV as the archive copy of what I shot on the video camera. With the new HD camera I was transferring these files from the internal storage of the camera to the PC. I then could back up the files (mts) to DVDs and external HDs, since the media wasn't on a removable source. I would prefer to transfer the files from the camera this way instead of directly from the camera into PrE10.
Just wanted to confirm how the added media to a project could be impacted .
