View Full Version : Porting Resolve project between systems
07-01-2011, 10:16 AM
Does anyone know the easiest way to port a project and all of it's media/ grades etc between different mac systems?
I need to move everything to a new tower (a new install) and open on that system (using the dongle).
Any pain free steps appreciated!

On the config page select your project in the project list, then right click and choose 'export +'.
Then go to the browse page copy all your media in the media pool using 'clip task manager' to your external drive.
On your new mac inside the resolve's config page select the default project, right click and choose 'import +'.
Then add all your clips inside the media pool.

Peace is correct. You will need to select the luts, stills and audio during the export project phase too. All source image media requires you to select and move.
When you put the media into the new system, don't worry if the file path is different. You can select the clips in the media pool and change the patent directory to match the new file location.
Finally, if you are moving many projects, instead of exporting each, try making a backup with the new database manager toolset, and restore on the new system. You will still need to move your media, stills etc manually but this might be a lot quicker if you have 20 projects to move.
