Relinking Fullres to proxy
on Feb 27, 2014 at 10:23:36 pm

I'm currently creating catalogs of media and copying the fullres files to another drive for archive. When I copy the files, I make sure that the Copy command links to the fullres media's new location.

When I do this, the proxy goes offline in the catalog.

Is there a way to relink the proxy to the fullres media file? Or is there a better way to handle the process of copying media to another location. Should I use Move instead?

Thanks

This can be a sticky one. Thank you for starting this thread.

Can the Squarebox guys pitch in on this?

We generally don't move files once they are in place, but you should be able to do this.

Using a full path to proxy, which makes managing large proxy sets easy, this is the system path mapping.

/Volumes/drive-name/folder/file.mov

goes to:

/Volumes/proxy/Volumes/drive-name/folder/file.mp4

I've heard of making all proxy in a single folder but this doesn't work as expected. We are normally moving via automation so we can just relocate the proxy to match the new path, but a stand alone user can't really do this.

Is there a fix for this other than moving the proxy? Great tutorial subject here.
