How to keep Footage/project clean
on Mar 28, 2013 at 9:36:08 pm

Sometimes I have Footage for projects that gets strung all throughout my Harddrive. This isnt good for when I'm moving between my laptop/desktop. How can I keep all Footage in like a (Footage) folder that would be with the project? I'm just looking to cleaning up my project.

Strange, I answered a couple of organization questions on the main forum today. Check out this link and read my answer, it's should help you out..

Missing File Error

As for me, when I start a project, I create a folder on my Source Drive, for every single project. In that folder is a Grx folder(with subfolders for textures, images....)Video folder, audio. Anything I use or acquire for a project gets put into one of those folders first, then imported into the project. You'll find that doing a little organization up front will save you massive headaches later.

This might help too. Each project I start, I start from this template(got this from Rob Garrot).

Check this script:

It will help you to open a a default template everytime you will create a new project.

Also if you want to move your project from one drive to another then you can use Collect Files Feature.
