  • How do I move the sequence file outside of a folder without losing the project?

  • Paul Nicholson

    My project contains about 150 backing tracks with scrolling onscreen lyrics and guitar chords that I am constantly updating.

    History of the issue:
    I must have had conflicting sequences in my project due to clicking ‘Import As – Sequence’ when I imported Photoshop layers. This probably led to the project not being able to load because of a conflict. So I created an untitled project and imported the broken project (Import Entire Project did not work so I selected Import Sequence) and the project was restored, thank God.

    Issue:
    Unfortunately, this trick put the sequence file into the same folder as every other file. This means that every time I export, the encoding runs through every single file in the entire project – irrelevant files that are not related to the Work area, causing a usually 3 minute export to take 3 hours. The exports are all perfect but they are taking forever. My guess is that if the sequence file was OUTSIDE of this folder that contains hundreds of files, it would go back to normal. But if I drag the sequence file out of the ‘everything’ folder, the entire project disappears.

    Question:
    How do I move the sequence file outside of a folder without losing the project?

    Anyone? The export times are excruciating. Is this forum active?

    Export an xml of your sequence. Open a new Premiere project, import your xml and then do your exports.

    Thank you. Im using Premiere Pro CS6. The XML Export is called ‘Final Cut Pro XML’. Is this the correct export option?

    Yes, that’s correct.

    I created a new project and imported the xml file and this error message popped up:

    Translation Report

    Please check the FCP Translation Results report (added to the main bin) for possible issues encountered during translation.

    Then Premiere froze.

    What made you recommend translating the project to final cut pro? Has this worked for you?

    If you have effects applied to clips the xml export will be problematic. Effects don’t generally translate well to an xml export.

    Another route is to open a new project and then import only your timeline. This method will keep the effects applied to your clips and it will import only the clips in the imported timeline.

    It also couldn’t hurt to do some homework and learn more about how Premiere works. A simple google search will reveal many video tutorials showing you step by step how to media manage a project in Premiere.

    ‘Another route is to open a new project and then import only your timeline. This method will keep the effects applied to your clips and it will import only the clips in the imported timeline.’

    Thats what I did to begin with.

    You recommend I research the way Premiere processes media files and that it wont hurt? And to go and Google it? Thats pretty offensive to tell someone to go and google something. Especially on a forum.

    [Paul Nicholson] “ou recommend I research the way Premiere processes media files and that it wont hurt? And to go and Google it? Thats pretty offensive to tell someone to go and google something. Especially on a forum.

    Sorry if you felt insulted. You haven’t received many responses to your issue and so I was simply suggesting that you use the resources available on the web.

    For your purposes, the sequence file or Timeline is the blueprint for the entire project. But it’s only a pointer file to the media. If you have successfully imported a timeline into a new project and you’re still encountering issues then the problem most likely lies with your media and not the timeline itself.

    If you have a lot of large photoshop files in your project that could cause your processing time to go up dramatically. What size are these photoshop files?
