    Moving Projects

    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if there is a way to isolate all the Avid media that pertains to a specific project?  I want to move a project from one hard drive to another, but I don't want to have to copy over the media files from the other projects that I don't need.  Thanks!

    Re: Moving Projects

    i think "consolidate" is the thing your looking for. you could add a USB drive (with the avid media folder structure) select your sequence in the bin, right click (or was it in the hamburger menu?), select consolidate enter your handle length and use the USB drive as a target.

    Thanks, this is a good suggestion, but I'd also like to know if there a way to move the entire media files in tact, for further editing onto another drive.  If anyone know how to do this, I'd appreciate some advice.

    Thanks!

    Re: Moving Projects

    just select all clips of your project you want to move in the bin and then consolidate....

    Seconding MDV. I've used it for exactly this purpose a number of times. Works very well. Watch out if you've used any XDCAM EX material however as the 'Avid AAF' export technique creates clips with no project association, so they would be missed. Same goes for the older workflow with P2 where you'd drag MXF files directly from the P2 card to the Avid MediaFiles directory.

    Re: Moving Projects

    Projects without a project association will be grouped by MDV into "Null Project".  You might be able to sort things out by Date & Time or other Metadata.

    Hy everybody !

    MDV seems a nice app but it seems also a PC app.

    Is there a Mac file on the page ?

    Re: Moving Projects

    Try MacMedia Sift.  Don't panic when all of your media shows up offline after the sift.  The program puts media files into folders based on the Project Name.  You need to pull the media out of the folder for the Avid to see it in the MediaFiles folder.

    Must think of something clever to go here...
