I need to move a Premiere project from one computer to mine, but the media is scattered to the wind all over her machine. It is a rather long project, so I need to consolidate the media on the output.
What is the best way to save the project after removing all the unused media in order to get a copy of all the USED media saved to a folder, so she can hand me a hard drive.
if you were doing this in after effects, i'd select the final comps (the comps that i would want to render) in the project window, then choose file>dependencies>reduce project to remove all unnecessary pre-comp, footage (including images and audio) and solids.
then i'd choose file>dependencies>collect to move copies of all the required elements into a new folder, with a copy of the project.
