Question

Is there a way to save a production and then delete the master video with out loosing all the data for the production? I do dragracing and have 10-20 hours worth of video that I would like to save individual clips into folders and do a production for each driver at the end of the season? If I leave all of my downloaded video in my computer I would use up all of my hard drive.

It depends exactly what you mean by "save a production". Do you mean to output your production to a video file and save that clip? Or do you mean to save the project file (has the extension dmsm if you are using Videowave)? If the latter then all you are saving is the instructions on how to create the video file, what source files you used, etc. In this case you also have to keep the source data files in their original locations if you ever want to create a video file of you production.

 

I think its time to invest in alrger hard drive :rolleyes:

To add to what Walt said.....

 

You can save individual clips by putting them on a timeline in VideoWave, trimming them and doing a File\ Output production... and save a a video file for DVD Authoring Best. Once you have all the 'clips' saved as new movies, you can delete the individual movies.

 

However, these are new movies, so it depends on what you mean my 'losing all the data for the production.'

I think you gave me my solution. I saved a clip and then output production. I then deleted the original and I was able to reopen the clip in videowave. I had never used the output production feature before. THANKS!

I would not have deleted the original files that quickly unless you are 100% satisfied with the "new" video you have generated. I keep all my originals on DVD or external hard drive as a backup if I ever need to change my production.
