    Transferring a project from an external hard drive to my main suite

    Hi. I've only been using Media Composer for a few weeks and I'm getting along with it OK but I'm about to try something new and I hope someone could help me with an idiot-proof method of achieving it.

    I have MC7 on my main suite and also on a laptop, where I store the project and footage on an external hard drive. I would now like to transfer a project from the laptop onto the main suite and its internal storage. Please let me know how to do this correctly.

    Also, some of the footage on the laptop project is on the laptop's I internal orage. How do I consolidate this correctly onto the main suite's internal storage so that it still works in the project being transferred?

    I know this is really basic stuff but I just want to get it right first time rather than mess up and then try an fix it.

    Many thanks.

    Dave.

    Dave, there is one man's basic stuff and then there is another man's basic stuff.

    If you take a look at THIS URL you can get information about yet another man's basic stuff.

    That is a very healthy attitude.
    I didn't start with that attitude, but now that I am using the methods described in the tutorials I am able to very easily keep track of projects and move them smoothly between computers.
