So I can still set storage location to Library and import proxy files (leaving originals in place) to my laptop (for example) and then revert to using full rez optimised media she I come back to base and copy my project version back to the main Pegasus Raid drive?
Could somebody run me through that workflow please? I have the project on a Pegasus RAID drive with original clips in an external folder or managed library (but not both) and I want to make a duplicate with proxy media to put on my laptop to take away for a couple of weeks and then come back and update project to main drive.
And perhaps I am trying to do something the wrong way anyway?
I cannot see an option for importing Proxy clips to a different destination to the Original and Optimised files.
Only other workflow I can find (apart from transcoding the pProxy media after already importing Original media to an external folder) is Import everything to the Library and then Consolidate Media Out to external folder but not check the Proxy Media option thus leaving it in place in the Library.
So could you walk me through how to send Original, Optimised and Proxy files to different destinations at the original import/ingest stage please?
Bottom line: if your original media isn't on your disk yet, then you'll have to import first to the desired external location, then switch the library properties back to the (local) library and create your proxy. You then can simply disconnect the external source, switch to proxy and use the generated files for editing. When done, reattach the external media and switch back to Original/Optimized for output.
