So I'm having a great issue- I am trying to do the collect in Project Manager of my feature film and since its SO heavy (1,7 TB) my computer collapses over and over again mid-process. I was able to do an almost complete Collect with a borrowed computer (has everything but 3 files and the .xml). I was told that if you complete it manually (like copy paste the .xml) it's not the same. Is that true? And, MOST important: IS IT POSSIBLE to RESUME A PREVIOUSLY STARTED COLLECT so that the few files that were needed are copied on the folder??
I found nothing of this sort on the internet and everytime I try a new collect, it starts all over again. Oh... help!

The Project Manager has some problems on some projects. The main things to test to make it work is to uncheck the following options : - "Include Audio Conform Files" - "Include preview files" So try to uncheck them and relaunch "Collect and Copy". You can also check on your computer if your filepaths have no special character in it: for instance chinese and japanese characters, accent, "-/|*#", etc.
It's a Premiere Pro plugin and it's similar to the Project Manager with less bugs and there is also a Trimming feature with handles. This feature will remove the unused data of your media without re-encoding the file compared to Project Manager: your files keep their codec and exact quality. It's like copying a part of your files !
