Make sure that your Media Cache and Media Cache Database is included in the uploads.
This is his latest...i have the same issue on my machine:I see your indexed files there and the cfa ones too.But I cant access them in premiere, premiere wants to remake them.This also happens if I unplug and replug in an external (if the project is on that HDD)..Pain in the a…
That is standard if the drive letter and the complete path do not match exactly what was on the original system. Even it the complete directory path is exactly the same, but the drive letter of the external changed, you get this result.
The PRPROJ file is just a set of links and instructions, in XML. Those links are absolute Paths, and if anything changes, like a drive letter, those links will be lost.
A common issue with externals is that it's seen as a different drive letter, on different machines, or even on the same, depending on what drive letters have been assigned to other devices. The key is to set the drive letter in the OS of all machines to always be the same. Then, when it's plugged into your machine, regardless of what else might be plugged in, it always comes up the same - in the client's/collaborator's machine, one would assing the same drive letter, in its OS.
I migrate Projects between computers with externals, and each has a unique drive letter assignment that matches OS to OS. Remember, this is done at the OS level in each machine.
[Edit] Wondered why it took so long for this reply to post - Harm was posting at the same time!
Thanks Harm and Bill!
We are having trouble with getting the full project to open properly
We keep getting black lines and no camera for this file
He has the file from the full project manager and from a previous drive.
I opened it on my PC..(.He has a Mac) and it is fine.
I saved a copy of the .pproj and renamed it and sent it to him.
He opened it up and the same thing.
Screen shots below...not sure why camera two stops here and goes black.
Harm and Bill,
Thank you! Finally I have an answer to this. I work with multiple externals and move files/folders for Premiere projects between them.
I just adjusted the permissions on my drives and this worked! You guys are wonderful! Thank you! Thank you!
