Avid and the Attic

Avid Express Pro attic.gif

Avid has a great way to save the day if you either mess up your project, if something becomes corruptor if you just need to go back to an older version of a sequence. This great tool is called the Avid attic. The attic provides you with a history of versions of your bins. If you manually save or auto save your bins are backed up in the attic. The biggest misconception of the attic is that is will bring back deleted media. The attic does not make copies of your media; it just saves versions of you sequences and clips information. If you delete the raw media you cannot retrieve it in the attic. The other thing you need to be aware of is the attic saves a default of 30 files; this is fine if your frequency of saves is 60 minutes or more but I like to save at least every 20 minutes so I like to bump my number to around 100. This allows me to go deep if I need to retrieve from a very old version. Just remember the attic is a great place to retrieve your lost clips and sequences but it will not bring back deleted media.
