Storing Old FCP Projects

In order to efficiently archive your projects, you need to demonstrate solid organizational skills from beginning to completion of a job. We have all been guilty at some point in our careers of having files strewn across a drive and storing large amounts of media with no rhyme or reason, resulting in clips from multiply projects going offline when we do try to make since of it all, but there are steps you can take in the beginning to save yourself a hand full of hair later.

Steps like storing your Project Files and Media files on separate disks, logging your tapes with names and reel numbers, setting scratch disks accordingly to the project at hand, placing materials in the Browser and not just dragging them from the desktop to the timeline and properly logging clips. The price of drives have dropped to the point where you can seriously consider them for long term storage. Think about it, you can easily tuck away a 500 gig drive and your footage would have a longer shelf life than if it were stored on tape!
