offloading mutiple P2 cards to one folder
on May 2, 2012 at 6:00:42 pm

When offloading P2 cards to a hard drive, using P2CMS or Shotput, I usually offloaded each card into it's own folder. But there are times that all that was on a 2nd card was either, the 2nd half of a spannned clip, or maybe a few other clips. In these instances I have exported 2-P2 cards into one folder. Using Media Composer on a Mac I have had no problems reading these clips but worry if doing this may have unforeseen consequences down the road. Does anyone know if this could be a dangerous practice?
Thanks in advance for any input.

No worries.
Same shoot, same folder is fine. In this case.
This is what we do all the time.

Personally, I keep each P2 card in a separate folder. Each card has a unique name. Most of my multiple card shoots have Card 1, Card 2 at the end. ShotPut Pro does the consecutive numbering for me.

Media Composer has an easier time seeing the MXF files compared to FCP which requires the complete file structure.

Thanks for input. It seems that if you do this, on same shoot, not a problem in Avid but may be problem if I try to use these folders in FCP.
