I have a Premier Elements 8 under Windows 7 half complete video project on my laptop that I would like to move it to my desktop computer to take advantage of a more powerful machine. The desktop also has PRE 8 under Windows 7, but is an i7 quad core processor, 3x the RAM and a NVidia giga byte display adapter.
My project consists of a couple hundred photos from various directories, mostly on a shared NAS drive.
What steps do I have to do to move the project and reconnect all photo and audio files with the least hassle?
Thank you for your help.
Select from one of the two optios and choose a destination path for the project
Copy the archived project on your second computer and start editing.
You might also benefit from a slightly different folder structure for you Project. I too use a NAS to store the originals of my Assets, but for speed in editing, create sub-folders, where I Copy my Assets. This ARTICLE lists my most common Project setup.
John Anthony's suggestion on using Project Archiver is a good one. Before you assume that it has gathered everything, for your Project, test it on the laptop, where everythiing is where you started. I have encountered instances, where there were Assets, well outside of the Project's folder structure, where Project Archiver (and also PrPro's Project Manager) did not gather all Assets.
