I have a project that has now finished production and would like to collect only the files used for the delivery sequence into a single project for archiving purposes.
The delivery sequence is made up of:
Multiple subclips taken from a single large video file
Multiple clips take from multiple smaller video files
Multiple nested sequences
From the Project Manager I have selected Collect Files and Copy to a New Location and selected only the delivery sequence.
My issue is this: in the resulting project, for each subclip referenced in the delivery sequence, Project Manager has created a copy of the large video file. So each subclip in the resulting project is referencing different in/out points in a different copy of the long video file.
I would have expected that each subclip could reference different in/out points in the same large video file, as with the original production project.
Are subclips working as intended in this scenario? Is there a different process for collecting files when using subclips?
Do not have trims restricted to subclip boundaries
WORKAROUND: In the resulting project, if I Replace Media... on each subclip and link it all back to one version of the source file, I can then safely delete each duplicate. This is only a work around though - if anyone has other suggestions or advice I'd greatly appreciate it.
