    Hi everyone. Long time reader, first time poster here. I was wondering what people did after they finished a project? Do you guys just export to a tape and save that tape, ro do you backup all the source files? I’ve been trying to figure out how I should backup my finished film for my high school film class. Thanks.

    I copy all the files to a blank DVD…Captured .avi-.wav-.psd-.tga-.ppj-etc…Then I use a peogram like Directory Printer to display the contents of the DVD…Then I Copy and Paste into an Excel file…Create columns for File Name, Date, DVD Name, etc…Then you can search your master Excel file for a peticular file and pull the DVD from the shelf…Then it’s just drag and drop…Or drop ALL files back to the HD and reopen the project…

    I also lay each finished project to a master DVCam/MiniDV tape…

    What about projects that are too big for dvds? I have a 6.42gb project. That won’t fit on a standard dvd. I have put it on a dv tape of course, but wanted a way to backup the whole project.

    Rarely do I have a project that fits on 1 disk (maybe a :30 second commercial)…I take the time to label the disks in an organized way…
    Each week I have a 30 minute show…It takes me 4-5 DVDs for everything that I save for just that 1 show…That’s why I paste all the contents to an Excel file…I just search and find the appropriate disk…I use a bunch of disks…I buy blank DVDs in spidles of 50…Every week the Sunday paper is full of sales circulars…Best Buy, Staples, Circuit City, Office Depot/Max…Spindle of 50 DVDs for $20…40 cents a piece…

    I use a similar method like mrparlay. With a little slickdealing and coupons from here and there, I can get GOOD discs for about 20 cents a piece.

    Thanks for the help guys. By using multiple disks, does file and folder structure get messed up? I’m just making sure everything works correctly before going ahead and trying this out.

    Soon we’ll be able to get Double layer disks so we can put approx. 8gb to each disk…That’ll help…

    Dual Layer DVDs would be nice. However, they are still very expensive from what I hear.
