Video: Archiving projects

When you have completed your project and shared it, it's a good idea to archive it. You know you have your files some place. They are probably on the original cassettes or perhaps there are files on your hard drive. But if you archive a project, you can pare it down to just the stuff you used and then store that away some place. You can maybe record it onto a DVD or put it onto a portable hard drive. So if you want to follow along with this, just open up 14-archiving. The basic way this works is when you are done, you go File > Project Archiver. It's a very simple thing. First it looks at your project and says how big is this project. And the archive project says this option will include only media you used in the Timeline of your movie. The original project size was 2.1 gigabytes but the saved project size is 1.2 gigabytes. So it pairs up the stuff you didn't use. There are some little videos that we might have not used or parts of videos that we didn't use. So the new project will be just this. If I click OK, it will save this, all the little files individually so you can go back and open it up later and re-edit it.

Archiving projects

When you have completed your project and shared it, it's a good idea to archive it. You know you have your files some place. They are probably on the original cassettes or perhaps there are files on your hard drive. But if you archive a project, you can pare it down to just the stuff you used and then store that away some place. You can maybe record it onto a DVD or put it onto a portable hard drive. So if you want to follow along with this, just open up 14-archiving. The basic way this works is when you are done, you go File > Project Archiver. It's a very simple thing. First it looks at your project and says how big is this project. And the archive project says this option will include only media you used in the Timeline of your movie. The original project size was 2.1 gigabytes but the saved project size is 1.2 gigabytes. So it pairs up the stuff you didn't use. There are some little videos that we might have not used or parts of videos that we didn't use. So the new project will be just this. If I click OK, it will save this, all the little files individually so you can go back and open it up later and re-edit it.

So a very clever thing, in case you go, oh, rats, I really wanted to rearrange those two clip so I can go back to the archive file and those clips will reside there, the ones that I used and I can then flip them around and re-edit the project. So you just find a place to store on your hard drive and click OK and you have saved yourself basically one gigabyte. If you copy the project here, it won't calculate the project size, in fact, it should say your new saved project is exactly the same as the original size, it will be 2.1 gigabytes. And you can do that too, just that will be stored in one place rather than scattered around your hard drive, which is also a cool thing to do.

You can put 2.1 gigabytes on one DVD. So this is an option to save everything you used or you even didn't use, just in case you want to maybe use it later. So either you copy it in one spot or you archive it, which pares it down to a more manageable size and just saves the stuff you used.
