Hello everyone,

 

I have to get my (unfinished/ unexported) projects to a new PC.

 

How can I do this. I have a windows 

 

PC. I am sure its more than just copy them

From C:\users\xxxxxxxxxx\adobe\premierepro\14.0\

 

Or is it as simple as copying them from there?

Any help would be appreciated.

It would be devastating to find out I have to do my work all over again

Yes, it is as simple to just copy the project file/s and the media used in the project. The worst thing that can happen is if your media today is located on the D:\ and you copy the media files to let´s say E:\. When you open the project Premiere Pro will report that it cannot find the files on D:\ but just click the Locate button to point the dialog to the correct media files on E:\. This takes often just a couple of seconds.

 

There is no way of damage the project by doing this. A good habit it to keep a backup of the project file in case the re-linking of the media goes wrong.

 

If your media files already are on C:\ there will be no need to re-link media.

I have never done this, but I think the project manager will let you create a folder with "everything" in the folder that you need to be able to copy to a different computer
