Our organization in terms of file management is very organzied with footage seperated in folders by subject, date, and card number in both the NLE and our finders, but problem arises when sharing projects from assistant to lead editor.
PrPro CS6 and below searches for exact match in a media file path, including drive letter. PrPro CC can automatically find all media in a project in more complex scenario without asking an editor for locating missing media. So, which version of PrPro are you using and why are you relinking your media at first place?
Use the canon import utility next time!! Your clips will have exact names (date+ time of recording)
We are sharing between two systems at different locations with media from seperate drives requiring a relink. I'm operating on CS6.
Thanks for the heads up I was not familiar with the Canon Import utility. I will check it out.
I'm still trying to figure out why relinking is required...
If folders structures, including drive names, on your both machines match, you don't have to relink anything.
If they don't, then either match them at OS level (provided you're not sharing between Mac OS and Windows) or, since .prproj file is an XML document, open it in a script editor (e.g. in Adobe ExtendScript Toolkit) or even in a text editor and perform Find And Replace command (make a backup copy of the .prproj file prior to doing that)...
