I would like to see an option like what is in Ableton Live. It would be nice to see a composition in folder holding all the video clips so we can set up a composition at home and bring it to the club to use on the club system
I agree that this is a sadly missed feature for being able to move sets between different machines and `collect` a whole comp as with after effects etc. This runs with the ability to `reconnect` missing files and Arena`s ability to do this is a massive step on from Res 3. A half way house to collecting a whole comp would be for Arena or Avenue 4 to look for all the missing files in a single folder and reconnect them, that way the composition could be reconnected in one go with the `missing` files transferred to the new machine. This way at least i could take a gig to another machine on a protable hard drive even if it took a little time to reconnect the files. Reconnecting the first files could maybe give an option to seek for all the missing files in the same folder or similar.
I`ve just had to do this for a gig at the Edinburgh Festival, making it on my machine and transferring it to a sister machine for the gig. It seemed very clunky to have to do so much of it all again by hand especially as that`s what computers are good at, multiple repetitions and copying .
Both features would be good, multiple re-connect and Whole Comp saving - and I agree that it doesn`t really matter if it`s 20gb or whatever, but also that there is a concern over inadvertant button clicking. Then again a couple of warnings should stop all but the most digitally determined ....
and once again tributes for a wonderful program ...... john mcgeoch
