    Writing a final sequence to media for archive

    Good morning,

    I have been trying to figure out if it is possible to write a final sequence to a form of media that would preserve multiple audio/video tracks. In MXF format if possible. Where I work as we finish a project, we send the entire project to our archive. We want to have a backup of the finished sequence with all tracks avaliable should we need to go back to it due to an error in our archive system. 

    Currently, we can write sequences to a XD disc. This does what we want, but we would go through a lot of discs because the size of the files vs XD disc capacity. I was curious if anyone has had luck doing this by writing to something like an external drive or a SD card?

    We are on Media Composer 2020.12.

    I've got a dedicated disk for that in my system, labeled "Mixdown"

    Consolidating the final sequence with a bit of handle length is an even better approach.
    Yes, that leaves all data within Avid, but that's okay since Avid is a lot better at tracking data than win explorer is ;-)
