Querying files that don't have proxies
on Jul 17, 2012 at 5:26:09 pm

Hello,

Is there a way to query all the clips that don't have proxies? I have been trying on and off and I have yet to figure out a way. Is it possible to do it with some sort of Metadata (file) query using the Proxy File built in field?

Thanks - Eric

Are you trying to figure out which clips don't have proxies so you can isolate them and make proxies?

Non-linear: all the time and nothing but.

Hey Robb,

That is what we're trying to do. I know you can do it in the worker, but didn't know if there was a query we could run in CatDV.

Unmount your high res storage and query for offline clips.

I'd also like to add that PF as a field ID is not useable in the CLI. That would be a useful one to add to the Worker.

Thanks Bryson. I can see that online is the built in field p5, but I'm not seeing it in the Query Advanced view drop down. How would I query it?

You can just open a catalog, select all, and build movies. It skips over the ones that already have proxies. I do it all the time. It should work on any query, too. I add material to projects/catalogs allmthentime and lose track of which have proxies. Works fine.

Yeah that's what we usually do as well. One my coworkers asked me and since I had been wondering about it for a few months on and off thought I'd throw it out here.

Thanks.

Checking whether a proxy is available or not is done by the client at run time so a server query would be no good (conceivably, different client machines could have different proxy directories available). You should be able to do a local search for whether Proxy File is blank or not though I'd have thought.
