I'm fairly new to the Avid world. I was wondering if there was a way in Media Composer 6 to collect all the media that is used in a particular project and copy it to one location. For example if I wanted to back up an entire project, including the poject file, bins, and mxf media, titles etc. to another hard drive? After Effects and even Final Cut Pro have features that let you collect all the media and put it in one folder, in one place.

If I have multiple projects how do I select just the media from one project to copy?

If Avid doesn't do this, is there a third party software that does this?

Avid had a process called "Consolidating"

This moves all media used by a particular timeline to a location specified by the user (can be placed outside of Avid MediaFiles/MXF/ but still wont index)

This can be done with adding handles to footage, copying media, moving media, etc. I am not sure if this can be done across an entire bin but I would imagine so.

If you use the r-click export functions it allows for placement anywhere rather than the consolidate/transcode option in the menu bar (Which I have never used so may also give the options)
