Hello.

I need to move the entire tree folder structure of screenlists (I decided all screenlists are depending on the same folder) to a new hard disk. Which could be the best method?

Thank you!!

Hello,

1) Select all items in Videonizer
2) RMB, "Files" -> "Move to Folder"
3) "Move Screenlists" is ON, others are OFF. "Preserve folder structure" - as you wish

Hello,

short question about moving movie files and screenlists in webm-format.

Following (generic) situation:

Movie is in D:\movies\action\KillBill_1.mov
Need to move to E:\movies\action\KillBill_1.mov

Screenlists are in D:\screenlist\movies\action\KillBill_1.webm (and … .jpg)
Need to move to C:\screenlist\movies\action\KillBill_1.webm (and … .jpg)

Now I moved both the movie and the screenlists with "files -> move to Folder"
- Works alright, screenlists are found
- movie plays when opened directly from the tile in videonizer (overlay button with camera)
- Webm-screenlist shows up when opened directly from the tile in videonizer (overlay button with camera)

BUT: the "start-video-from-screenshot" function in the webm-screenlist does not work (say from minute 50:13).
I can repair this by manually relocate the video when I am in the screenlist viewer. The webm file is updated and after it works properly.

-> However is there a possibility to relink the webm to the video file automatically?

Hello,

I will check the case.
Links should be updated automatically as far as I remember.

Thanks again.

However I I am trying to update the links in the webm files now.
How exactly shoud i do it? I am not moving the files any more, they already have been moved.

Or should I move them to a "temp" Folder and back so the webm file gets updated?

PS: Videonizer 9.000 is great :-)

You are right, no automation is provided for already moved files.

I can create a simple external command line tool like:

fix_broken_links.exe path_to_your_webm_file

Will it satisfy your needs? Probably your workaround with "temp" folder is better.
