Handing off a Project to another editor - But need to send only relevant media
on May 4, 2015 at 3:48:55 pm

I have a project that is 8TB. I need to copy this project to another editor, but he just need the relevant media not all the RAW files. The sequence/program he needs would probably be 2 TB. I don't want to buy another 8TB external drive if all he needs is way less than that.

Is there a way to take the sequence in Avid, consolidate (export) all the relevant MXF files to a drive so that way he has just the main program (with some handles) and not every single MXF file and every bin in my project?

Basically can I send him an "online" so he can make some edits, and do whatever changes he needs to do on his end?

thanks for your time, and help!

Alan

I also acknowledge that what I'm asking is painfully obvious.

I just wanna make sure that when I select a sequence, hit "Consolidate" and choose a different drive, that only the relevant media will be copied over for editing.

thanks!

Yes...that is what you do. Choose the sequence, use CONSOLIDATE...add handles, choose a different drive...and then let it go. Then only the footage IN THE CUT will be transferred.

Thanks Shane,

I just needed a little encouragement!

Do I give them the project file too, or will one be created during the consolidate ?

thanks again for responding!

When you consolidate, do it into a bin called 'consolidate xxx' (without the quote marks) A new timeline will be created during the consolidate. Give the editor a copy of that bin - 'consolidate xxx.avb', it will have the timeline and all information.

AND make sure to tell them the project settings...1080p 23.976 or 720p 59.94 ot 1080i 59.94. So that they can make a project that matches the media and sequence you are giving them.
