    Renaming a Project

    I'm embarressed to admit I don't know how to rename an existing project.   Do I simply rename the project's folder in the Avid Projects master folder and then reopen Avid?

    Re: Renaming a Project

    There are a few steps:

    1. Rename the project folder

    2. Inside the project folder, rename the project file (the one that ends .avp)

    3. Inside the project folder, rename the project settings file (the one that ends .xml)

    One thing to note is that any media you created using the old project name will still be associated with the old project name. So, for example, if you change the project name from Florida to Nebraska, all the media you created prior to the name change will still be associated with Florida. (I hope that makes sense.)

    I'm glad I asked.  I forgot about steps 2 & 3.  Thanks!

    It's actually an old school gag to play on someone. Sneak into a fellow editor's room on April Fool's day, and rename the project's "_.avp" file to something goofy. Does no harm.

    Many systems. Windows 7, Windows 10, and all flavors of macOS. Juts assume I'm running everything ;) [view my complete system specs]

    Re: Renaming a Project

    Is there a way to completelly associate the old projects (Media Files) files with the new name?

    And not having the old name popping next to the new one at Media Tool?

    I mean to completelly vanish the old name.

    I haven't found a way.

    No. all media created has the ingest project name embedded.

    You can rename a project (my prefered way is to male a new project of the required name and then just move the bins across.

    Hi Pat,

    thanks that was my thought too but it takes a lot of work to do so.

    So, think twice before naming a project.
