From what I understand you need to have a path that is constant for the 'Full Res' footage. The folder and file structure is then identical for the proxies. Are you able to have multiple drives for the full res that you can slot in and out? How does this affect your proxy creation?

I will not be keeping much of the full res on file to start with, currently bluray data and then cacheA. The proxies are kept on a Raid 5.

I have read conflicting arguments for having a deep folder structure and for not (like yours). Metadata like weather (cloudy/sunny) or course will not enter the folder structure or file name. I don't really see it as being too complex, almost essential.

Lets say CatDV (for what ever, hypothetically) stopped working, how well would your structure hold up?

In regards to having everything in triplicate, could you expand on this? The reason I may need them like structured like this is for using the worker node to organise my footage in the future where essentially it can organise footage into the right year and country and location based on given fields in CatDV.
