I posted this last week to the Avid forums,
but got little response.
So here is a repost -

I have been working at home, now it is time to move that work back onto the Avid here at work. Project originated at work, and took it home to develop.

I used Media Database Viewer to move all MXF onto an external drive to take home.
So I copied that and the Project folder(s).
All work was done off that drive. These were created as external projects,
so Projects folders and Avid Media folders were on same drive.

This mirrors how the system was set up at work, it was inherited.
I figured keeping the same workflow and file mapping
was the path of least resistance.

How do I go about this ...?

I imagine overwriting old corresponding project folders with new.
Question comes with moving MXF media back to the original drive.
I am guessing I target the original MXF folder,
but certainly do not want to corrupt other project media
in the same folders. That's my concern.
Nothing in that media has really changed though, except
for renders.

Also, do the render files reside alongside original MXF media files,
in the same folders?
I had a problem remembering to reset media creation/renders when moving back and forth,
but figured that one out by trial and error. "Apply to All"
was the savior ;-)

I know people work like this all the time,
just wondering what 'best practice'
might be - to avoid over-complicating,
but also not really futzing up the works.

Any direction is most appreciated!
