Firstly, sorry I'm a bit of a noob at the moment so this question may sound pretty stupid but:
Once ive imported my file (.mov) into avid it creates a .MXF file (right?), so do I need that original .mov file that I imported or could I theoretically just delete it? (I dont want to delete it but im just wondering)
I'm only thinking this because I want to move all my original .mov files onto another hardrive that I won't have much access too, but I dont want to have to go through a re-linking process if this doesnt work.
