    Proper Work flow for working on 1 or more projects MC 6.5


    I'm a little confused on Proper Work Flow when starting on and working on a new project in Media Composer 6.5.

    Before I start a new project I make a folder on one of my External Firewire Drives and name it. (Example - For a wedding I would name it Mary & Joe). I then open up Avid and the screen comes on and I press New Project. I then name it the same as the folder I made (Mary & Joe). I then navigate to the folder where it is and then I press Open. Avid opens up and I can start that particluar project by Importing footage into the bins. 

    Then when I want to start another project on another External Firewire Drive, I do the same thing, (Make a folder, Name it. Open up Avid, Press New Project, Name it the same as the folder I just created, and then I navigate to the Drive and folder that the new project is on.) Avid opens and I can start working on the new project. 

    Then when I want to work on the first project again, I open Avid, Highlight the job I want to work on, Navigate back to that Hard Drive and Folder and open up Avid again and start working. 

    Is this the correct way to do it in Avid Media Composer 6.5?

    Why Duplicate folders and names?

    A simpler way would be to create a single folder in your external Firewire Drive named "Avid Projects" or "Media Composer Projects" and create all your Projects in that one folder.


    If you keep all your Projects in one folder it will be easier to find and launch them.
