Project Backup

“How do I backup my project so that I can re-edit in the future if I need to?"

The most important item to backup is the project file. This contains all the instructions for the edit.

Next you need to backup and save all the audio and graphics files that do not have timecode and cannot be accurately rebuilt.

The video clips, the contents of your Capture Scratch project folder, do not need to be saved. Assuming the material was correctly captured with good timecode and reel number identification the material can be recaptured in Final Cut.

Note: This will not work in Final Cut Express with HDV material. This cannot be recaptured using the Project function as the timecode is lost when the material is converted to the Apple Intermediate Codec.
