Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Archiving assets, part of Final Cut Server 1.5 Getting Started.
Earlier in this chapter, we took a look at backing up the Final Cut Server catalog,…or database, which is an essential thing to do, as the database remembers…everything about your Final Cut Server setup.…However, backing up the database is only part of the equation.…See, the thing is that the database doesn't contain any actual media,…meaning that even if you backup the database, none of your assets are backed up, or archived.…And an individual asset of course is more than just the primary representation.…There are also proxies and thumbnails and poster frames to consider.…Well, it's always a good idea, if you have available storage, to have a copy of…all your original media archived somewhere--and…Final Cut Server can help you to facilitate this--…one of the major benefits of archiving assets from Final Cut Server is the…ability to be able to archive assets that you're not using,…but then, at a later point time in time, if you need them again, be able restore…them, so that you can well actually work with them.…
