Conforming is the process where the audio is adjusted from the original 16 bit nature to 32 bit for improved accuracy when editing. It can't be skipped or stopped. If the exact same drive letter and directory path is used on both machines, you may be able to avoid the reconforming.
What I tend to do is keep the project on one drive ie a firewire 800 drive and then either open it on the macbook pro or the macpro depending on my location. In this case, why does it re-conform everything?
I tend to set my scratch disk to same as the the project so I can keep everything on one drive.
Make sure that the external disk uses the same drive letter when attached to either machine. Do E: on one, then E: on the other.
To avoid conforming when moving files between computers make sure you have the following enabled:
-Write XMP ID to files on Import
-Save Media Cache files next to originals when possible
Both can be found in the media panel of preferences.
Great, that seems to have done the trick! Thanks for the advice. Just wondering, if that something that can be found in the manual? I couldnt see it! Should really be in there if it isn't as I imagine it would happen to a lot of dual computer users!
Hi all -
I'm having this same issue in CS6, and I'm hoping someone can help. What I've got so far:
- Both options that SteveHoeg mentioned are checked in my project
- Drive letters are consistent between the two machines
- Scratch disks are set to the same SSD that my project is on
- Source media is on the same drive, so the relative paths between the media and the project don't change
- Media Cache files are there on the SSD as well
Despite all of this, I still have to sit through reconforming when I move the drive between computers.
If it matters, the media is from a RED Scarlet camera, so what looks like one file from Premiere is actually the aggregate of about 12 linked files - actually wondering if this may be the source of the problem, but I don't know enough about the .R3D format to tell.
Does any of that ring a bell for anyone?
I am using CS6 on a Mac (so drive letters aren't an issue)
I have tried every suggestion I could find here to avoid conforming when I work from my harddrive between two computer, yet I still wait a loooong time through conforming. It gets longer each time and while I wish I didn't have to swap computers, I do.
This solution seems to have worked in earlier versions of CS, but not in CS6, for me.
Who has found a solution to this? Please help me so I can get some work done!
