Preparing Archives

The Prepare Archive function allows you to gather all files that are referenced by your project to ensure that these are in the project folder. This is useful if you want to move or archive your project.


  1. Select Media > Prepare Archive.

    If your project references external files, you are prompted if you want to copy them to your working directory. If any processing has been applied, you must decide if you want to flatten edits.

  2. Click Proceed.


Your project is ready to be archived. You can move or copy the project folder to another location.

After Completing This Task

You must copy audio files that reside within the project folder to the Audio folder or save them separately. You must also move your video clips manually, as videos are only referenced and not saved in the project folder.
