# How can I move an Adobe Prelude CS6 project

I have a Prelude CS6 project that I need to move to a different folder but there seems to be no way to change the file path for the clips.

When I move the project, in logging mode I see the clips in the project but they have the old file path and I can't see any way to change this. When I double click on a clip I get the error. The media you are attempting to work on is offline. Please locate your media, bring it online and try it again

Found a way to do this 10 minutes later and I thought I'd share it in case it helps someone.

There might be a "proper" way to do this within the program, but this way has just worked for me. The Prelude project file is just an XML document so easy to edit and this method should be bulletproof ( make a copy of the project file first though )

1. Close Prelude
2. Open the Prelude project file in a text editor, eg notepad but you'll need Sublime Text unless you want it to take ages or if it's a very small project
3. Replace all the FilePaths with the new file path ( if you use sublime then it's easy to use ctrl-D to multi-select them all in one go but if you're not a Sublime user you'll need to do them one by one - only change the file paths fo each clip not anything else at all
4. Save the file and open in prelude

Eg, for each clip you'll have something like

<MasterClip AssetName="back-head" AssetType="AssetTypeMasterClip" ClassID="9091c12c-9d39-43b7-b55e-4de81592552c" CreatedDate="11/27/15, 12:54:25" DropFrame="false" Duration="2542700160000" FilePath="C:\old\path\tozfootage\DSCF4661.MOV" FrameRate="8475667200" ImportDate="2015-12-18 03:04:59" ParentClassID="18e728c6-1583-44f4-96da-2a830cded31a" StartTime="0"/>

change the part where it says FilePath="C:\old\path\tozfootage\DSCF4661.MOV" to your new\path\to\footage

• so you'll end up with FilePath="C:\new\path\tozfootage\DSCF4661.MOV" - and so on for the other clips
• in my windows 7 machine I can find the path easily by right clicking the address bar in explorer and selecting "copy address as text"
