You can use the Project Manager and 'Collect Files' function.
Crossing OS (pc to mac) could cause problems
depending on what effects you have used.
There are a number of effects available on pc that are missing on a mac:

Here's what I do:
- I keep the cache files in a central location so that I can decide whether to move them to the other computer or not.
- I keep each project's source files in one set of folders, and the project, render and exported files in another set.
- I create an identical copy of the source media and the projects and renders that I use on my main system on an external drive.
- I plug the external drive into the secondary computer, ensuring that the drive letter for the external on the secondary system is the same as the local drive letter on the main system. That way, when the Pr projects are opened on the secondary computer, they see all the media, cache files (if they exist), render files and exported files the exact same way that they existed on the main system.
- I edit on the secondary computer.
- When I get back to my main system, I reverse the process then get back to editing on the main system.
This method has worked flawlessly for me for several years now.
Thanks Jeff! Great info.
