AVID - Renaming an AVID Project



How to create your own AVID project from a generic tutorial AVID project file.

This will explain how to alter the generic AVID project class project file to create your own personal AVID project linking to the class project media. You need to do this so that the class AVID project file stays generic without you altering it. Once you create your own project file save that after every edit session to a FireWire or USB storage drive a USB flash drive or CD or back up to the college class server.

1. FOR EXAMPLE: To alter the existing generic Dream Catcher class project. Go to the AVID DreamCatcher project and duplicate the folder by right clicking the folder and go to copy.

Then go to the storage drive. Make a folder and title it with your name and open it.

right click to paste the folder to that newly created folder.

2. Click the name of the folder to highlight it then type over the (RENAME) part and change it to your name.

2A.  Or if there is not a RENAME just add your name to the end

3. Open the folder that was just renamed and change the names of the AVID project file, as well as the settings file. The name has to match all three renames exactly.  Make sure to keep the extensions (.avs and .avp).
