Hello forum

Is it possible to define that all project data is stored on an other disk (than the
Lightworks program files)? How?


Thank you!

Joe

You can export an archive from lightworks and put that onto another disk.

User definable project locations are only available to professional licence holders. Sorry.

Based on information from another discussion, I suspect you run Linux.

Lightworks treats project metadata and media strictly separated. Project metadata and media imported using the default import method 'Create Link' do not consume much space in the Lightworks user folder '~/Lightworks', only media imported via 'Copy Local' and 'Transcode' do. Nevertheless, the internal media space '~/Lightworks/Media' can be moved to other locations, even split over multiple devices.

I wonder, what is the reason for your question, low available drive space?

Thank's to all for the helpful answers!

Evaluation of LWKS under a Linux Live distro. Should be able to export all
project data in order to be able to import it after rebooting the live system.

I think, project backups including all media should do it in the most straight forward way.

After each relaunch of the live system and Lightworks installation, you can restore one or more project backups. Project metadata and all media files will be restored locally from the project backup. Depending on the total file size of your media, this might take a while.
