Working at a studio with both PCs and MACs, we seem to lose our media links every time we open up our projects on a new computer even though we are using a shared media server. Example: If I save a project on the server after using a Windows 7 based PC when i try to open it on a MAC all the media is viewed offline and we have to re-link every single video, audio, still file even thought all the media file are located on a shared server. Is there a way to alleviate this?
Your project files and media may be on the server, but what have you specified... in each program... as the location for your various temporary cache files?
John, Thank you for your reply.
Some projects are set to cache locally while others are caching on the server, depending on the project and individual preference.
