Izzy, 

 

On one of the PRT episodes you talked about how you manage and store your personal home videos.  Would you mind sharing that advice again?

 

Thanks!

Mary

Mary, well the way I do it is pretty complex -- probably more than what the average consumer needs to do, largely because video is also my profession.

 

Anyway, it basically comes down to a couple steps:

 

1) Copy all the footage onto one external drive and one LTO tape (professional archiving media). Because the footage is in two places, I have less risk of losing it.

2) Catalog the footage using CatDV software. This keeps track of clips, even if they aren't currently on drives attached to my computer.

 

That's how I store my raw footage. Edited projects are basically the same thing, too.

 

I hope that helps! :)
