I have high-def sony m2t footage to edit.
I create a prpro project with edits, and I want to send to a collegue to tweak it. No problem.
However, I don't want to send them 30 gigs of source video, but 300mb of low res mp4 versions of the source video, so he can edit and work on timing and effects.
My challenge is that I when he returns the file, I must replace the footage and re-create all of the in/out markers on each clip, as well as the effects.
Is there a way to bulk replace footage in a project WHILE KEEPING the in/out cut, and the effects on each of the video bits? Or, keep the in/out and lose the effects - both are great solutions.
If I could get the same filename for the source video on my machine and the low-res version on his machine, it would be easy. The challenge is that my source video is *.m2t and the low-res versions are mp4, or flv, or mov.
Any ideas, workarounds, best practices for this?
cs5.5, win 7, i7-920, 12g ram, gt250 video, sony hc-1 camera
ren *.mp4 *.m2t
In both cases, since the extension is the same, relinking should be fairly automatic.
