There will be 3 folders

  1. Alias 2020 (Rename) is the AVID project
  2. AVID MediaFiles and
  3. OMFI MediaFiles

Download each folder individually

When you click on each of the folders a

"Download Icon" will appear

choose that to start the download

Do that for all 3 folders

Google Drive will start to zip the media prior to download and then start download

You will be prompted to Leave site if you are on Chrome

so click Leave

You will be prompted for every folder download to click Leave

Then the files will start to download

When the files finish downloading choose "Show All" to open the downloads folder 

There will be

  1. The Alias 2020 (RENAME) = project file
  2. 3 AVID MediaFiles folders
  3. 1 OMFI MediaFiles folder

Double click on all the files to expand them

The files will expand and look like folders when uncompressed

Four zipped files expanded shown here in downloads folder

Next need to copy the files from the expanded

downloaded folders to your hard drive

On your external hard drive look to see if you already have an AVID MediaFiles folder. If you do then skip this part. If you don't then on the "Root" level of the hard drive make a folder called AVID MediaFiles then inside that make a folder called MXF then inside the MXF folder make a folder call 1

This is how it should look

Go to Downloads and open each expanded folder go to AVID MediaFiles>MXF>1 and copy the files that are in those folders to

your external hard drive and go to AVID MediaFiles>MXF>1 and copy them there

Next Copy the OMFI MediaFiles folder to your external hard drive and place it on the root level of your hard drive do not put it in a folder.

This is how it should look on your hard drive

Next look for the AVID project in the downloaded folders.

Make a folder on your hard drive called AVID Projects and put it there.

This is an example

Then Rename the project with your name.

Open the project folder and change the (RENAME) to your name

Change the project name from this

To This

Then open Media Composer and open the project. At the Media Composer project screen choose the folder ICON to navigate to your project

Click on the project you want to open and choose open.



That is it your media should open in the project and you can edit.
