So my asus is about to die and wont do the work I need it to, I have a video for a huge client in premiere and have been working off a samsung t5 externally, the raw files and projects are saved to that. If I use that samsung ssd on a new computer can I just jump back into editing? 

 

I did look at the transcode and consolidate options etc in project manager settings but premiere keeps throwing up an error when I try to export the project as a whole..

 

Help would be HUGELY appreciated, I'm so stressed ha! 

 

Thanks

If you've been saving your project and all the content on your T5 then you can work on any computer! 😉

All your edits are saved in your project file (.prproj). With your project on T5, you can edit on any machine. Any Windows or any Mac.

By the way, I keep everything (all my photos/videos/projects) on an external drive. I use Samsung T5 as well  😉    never let me down, highly recommend!  🙂

Keeping everything on an external hard drive (SSD ideally, like T5) makes everthing easier. I can just plug it into any computer and work on any of my projects in Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop  🙂

Hello,

About the Project Manager, you should try the following if you have problems with : 

  • Disable "Include Audio Conform Files"
  • Disable "Include Preview Files"
  • Do not use special character in your filenames

 

With Autokroma we also develop PlumePack : it's a Project Manager plugin. You have the same "Collect & Copy" feature so some projects which don't work with the native Project Manager are working with PlumePack. But the main feature is to trim your footage losslessly (without re-encoding) : it removes the unused frame and you keep the same codec with exact same quality  on your files so you can have a project much lighter : which can be useful on a SSD ! 
More infos : https://www.autokroma.com/PlumePack

Best,

Nicolas from Autokroma
