Let's continue looking at different options for transferring footage using Adobe Prelude. We've already transferred footage and transcoded footage. But one of the features of Prelude, will actually let you place footage in multiple locations. The idea here is, what if I want to do both? I want to transcode for editing, but I also want to backup and verify the whole card. Likely at a different location because the backup wants to be safe while the editing copy is working.
This is a little like the days of tape, when you would make a master and a submaster, your editing copy and then the one that just sat on the shelf. It's kind of that idea. So everything up here will stay the same, that's our editing copy. But down below, I can add a destination. We'll continue to use the Desktop because this is just for practice, and I'll call this Back Up Cards. Again, it's more likely that this would be a different physical location, because the idea is to keep the footage safe.
And just click Choose. As you can see, my second destination has all of the same choices. So, the logic here would be no subfolder needed, no transcode needed and this time we'll just be copying the files to the new location. Now in this scenario, when I hit Ingest, I'm going to get one transcoded copy to one location and a second non transcoded copy to my backup location.
As you can see, Prelude continues to get more powerful as we open up new features. Of course, they're all going to depend on your chosen workflow.
