    Hmm [^o)] Copying mediafiles


    I'm working on a proffessionel project as an assitant. I'm the one who imports media in Avid so the editors have all the material and I also log using locators.

    The thing is now I need to send some of the material, related to just one of the episodes in our tv-show, to an editor who is working on a different location. So the question is how do I copy the clips, with new name and locators intact, to a hard drive so he can just import it to his avid-system?

    Is this even possible? Because I can't work it out on my own and neither can my friends. PLease help if possible!

    You need to send a copy of the media and a copy of the bins that have all the Master/subclips they need to work with.

    The easiest way to copy over just some of your media is to put all the clips you are interested in into a sequence and then export that sequence as an AAF. Choose the option to Copy all Media and to export to a Folder.

    You will get an AAF file (you can ignore this) and a new AvidMediaFiles folder with the necessary media.

    Now send a copy of the bins they need or probably just the entire project for ease.
