It not neccessary to have project in a same folder as Original footage.
If You want to transfer the project from one place to another :
Please follow this article : Trim or Copy Project
- Create New Trimmed Project
- to create a new version of the current project that refers only to the footage you used in the selected sequence
- so it sounds like ALL unused footage will be ignored, including parts of the clips that are unused?
- Collect Files and Copy to New Location
- to copy and consolidate the footage you used in the selected sequences.
so it sounds like ALL unused footage will be ignored? What does "consolidate" mean?
What should I do? I just want to move the "project" file and reestablish media connection.
Either way, this is what I got:
Thank you, Steve Z
I wouldn't say it isn't smart, but I would say it's not the most efficient. I recommend the following setup for actual editing:
Once you're done editing, it doesn't really matter where you store things for archiving. Just be sure to put them back on the right drive when you need to rebuild.
Thanks, but i was thinking if the project was with the media,
Then archived together in the same folder, then
revitalizing from the archive is no effort at all?
I get what you were thinking, and it may be more efficient for archiving and rebuilding, but it's less efficient for the actual editing, which you'll be doing a lot more of than archiving and rebuilding.
But cant we still direct intense activites to the scratch disk?
And my archive/work disk is fast and not system.
With projects and media on a RAID 0, I don't think it would make a difference.
