  • Working with muliple AVCHD recordings on same SD card

    Hey there. I'm using the source browser to bring in files from SD card. Shooting multiple nights on same card and want to bring the previous night's recording into Edius to edit. Bringing in the first day of video into Edius was easy. Just copied the entire folder structure in. But what about the next day's footage. Do I have to copy the entire folder structure in again or can I simply bring in the new video (.mts) files into the existing copied folder? I tried this using Mync but it once transferred, Mync presented the limited-size video files instead of presenting them as one complete video... while the video shot the night before which was brought in by the complete folder transfer showed as one complete clip. Hope that makes sense.

    If you are asking about the actual files that are saved, they will be in the Transfered folder in the actual Project folder. If you are asking about what folder they appear in the Bin, the files will go in whatever folder is active when you start the copy. Also in relation to the files in the Bin, you can combine multiple clips into one, by highlighting them all, right click, and select Set Sequence. You can always break them back down by right clicking and Cancel sequence. The caveat to Set Sequence is that all of the files must be the same type.

      on day two, insert the card and you will see all clips on the card in sourcebrowser, now highlight only the clips you shot on day two and add/transfer to bin
      on day three, insert the card and you will see all clips on the card in sourcebrowser, now highlight only the clips you shot on day three and add/transfer to bin
      on day four, insert the card and you will see all clips on the card in sourcebrowser, now highlight only the clips you shot on day four and add/transfer to bin

        Thank you. Where do the video files go when add/transfer to bin is selected? I was originally moving the video files from the SD card to a Thunderbolt external drive. (D drive) Also, Is there a way to customize what drive the bin is located on?

          I would always transfer and add to bin via source browser from a card, there is no need to copy the card to a HD in the first place

          the files automatically go to a folder called Transferred inside the Project folder, this is great for house keeping and easy backup

          you are in charge where you create the project, in my case I create my projects on my 8TB SSD Raid

            Very helpful. So, I have been unnecessarily copying cards to my external drive. I'm running out of space and can see why now. I want to get this process down so that I learn good habits at the front end here. So, I've backed-up/moved the video files I've unnecessarily copied (just in case I fail at this organization attempt) and then begun bringing video from SD cards in again with "Add and Transfer to Bin" method. I see that as I'm adding the files to the bin now with this new method I still have the old clips in the bin with the names that I gave them, "Cam-1, Cam-2", Cam-3" without the thumbnail now because I've removed the source files. Those clips are in the sequence timeline. Is there an easy way that I can replace the source file location for those clips so that I don't lose/mess up the sequence I've already completed? At the same time, new files are being added to the bin that I could rename "Cam-1", etc. How should I proceed from here?

            Thanks!

              Also, I notice bringing the files in from the same SD card that multiple folders are created under "transferred" starting with "D" - I'm guessing because that's the Card reader drive. Then there's "Private", 1, 2, 3, 4, etc... and under each of those folders, AVCHD. Lot's of drilling down to get to the video files. Is this normal and are there any tricks to managing the video clips easier?

              Thanks

                you don't need to drill down into these folders at all, go to sourcebrowser and you will see all clips, then drag what you need to the bin

                  open the restore offline clip window and choose current sequence, then select all clips shown and relink (folder method) to the Transferred folder
