I've finished an 84 min edit in Suite 1.5.1 and am about to try the Collect Files from Program to archive as this was shot on a tapeless camera and I'm archiving to Blu-Ray.

Has anyone used this function or is there anything I need to do/know in particular. I'm flying blind and haven't seen it mentioned anywhere before.....

This is pretty straightforward. Simply make the window you want to use as the source for your collect your active window. E.g. if you want to collect your files from a timeline, make sure your timeline is your active window. If you want to collect files from multiple sources, e.g. 2 bins and 3 programs, make sure your Project only contains these elements, and make your project window your active window.

Then use the "collect files" command, select a target folder on a drive with enough space and let it do its thing. The command will not only place all the necessary media files in the new folder, it also will place a copy of your timeline there.

Thanks Floh, I'll hook up a drive and test drive it. ;)
