    Prevent Avid Folders in My Documents?


    I installed Avid Media Composer on my Windows 7 PC on the C drive. I want to have all my media and project files on the E drive. When I start working on a project Avid created folders in C:\Users\USERNAME\My Documents and adds OMF files and such which I want to prevent since avid should do this on the e drive only.

    How do I acchieve this?

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Mac,

    This is the forum for the free MC First product. You want to post questions for MC on the PC to the Media Composer - PC forum (BTW, you're not the first to post MC questions here, and you're not going to be the last Geeked).

    As to your question, you need to change the Media Creation settings. You can find these under File->Media->Media Creation Settings. This opens a dialog with a bunch of tabs. Just go through all of the tabs setting where you want the media to go.
