Something for the daring minds ...

Media managent has changed to the better with 10.1.

One thing me and others came across is that some cam formats are always copied to the Original Media folder inside the Library. That's good or bad depending on your point of view.

I made the suggestion in an other thread to create something like a "Capture Library", move the clips to a media folder outside the Library and go from there.
I supplied a little script to make that process easier.

Now I've extended the script into a little app to combine the needed steps with a few clicks.
You can open a Library and the app will list all files of any Original Media folder inside the Library which are not symbolic links.
Then you can select those file and move them to another "Media" folder. During the process the files in the Library's Original Media folder will be replaced by a symbolic links to their new location.

In several cases you have to relink files, but that works flawless.

So if you want to play around with some test projects download the app from the link below.
Don't use it for work in progress though you can use it in connection with a dummy "Capture Library" I mentioned above.

Let me know about your experience.

Andreas,

Since I mainly work with red media I am wondering if this tool will be able to easily view where the proxy media and the original media reside.

Anyhow, I'll take a look at this little tool.


David

Hi David,

In principle it should work.
But I haven't worked with RED files for years so I don't have any examples to test.

Maybe you can contact me personally: kiel (at) spherico (dot) com.
