You can now create and work on projects in the MRC lab and save your work on one computer and have it be accessible on other computers in the MRC Lab and on the MACs located in the study lounge across the hall from the MRC. In order for you to do this you must save your work on the server. This page will show you how to save to the server.
When you log on the computer to one of the Macs in the MRC Lab or across the hall from the MRC you may receive this popup asking you to sign into the server. If so sign in using your onyen and password
The server labeled MediaStorage will appear on your desktop.
To Save to the server you must tell the program you are working in to save to your profile within the server. For example in GarageBand, after selecting to create a new project when choosing what to name the project you want to make sure you select your folder in the MediaStorage Device to save your songs files.
Reminder you must select the server for any project that you want to have access to on multiple computers. If you don't it will remain on that computer you started to work on the project.
To add video content to iMovie, go to File > Import > Movies, or right-click in your Event Library. In the import dialog, make sure that you have the following settings:
To begin the editing process, you will need to create a new project by doing Flie > New Project. In the project dialog, give your project a name and make sure you have "Homes" set as the location.
If you would like to access your iMovie project on multiple computers, you must also manually save your project onto the server. You can do this by simply dragging and dropping your project onto the "Backup to Server" icon on the desktop.
When you first open Final Cut Pro, you must set a ‘Scratch Disk’. A Scratch Disk is where your project is saved along with every movie, song, picture, etc. it uses.
To set your Scratch Disk:
Once the Scratch Disk is set up, Final Cut Pro should open completely. Immediately click File > Save Project As and save the project in the Scratch Disk you made. This allows Final Cut Pro to save periodically as you work. However, it is recommended you save manually throughout working on your project. You only need to click File > Save Project at this point.
