Restoring the Source Link

If a source used in EDIUS is moved/deleted, the link between the source and EDIUS is lost, and the source cannot be referred from the clip. Clip that cannot refer to source will become an offline clip that video and audio are not displayed. The following section describes the method for supporting restoration of an offline clip.

If there are offline clips on the timeline, an icon to indicate the presence of offline clips and the number of the offline clips are displayed on the timeline status bar.

The offline clips on the bin and the timeline are displayed as below, and the video and audio are both muted during the playback.

Example:

Example:

Restoring an Offline Clip

Select a restoration method for the offline clips.

1) Click the [Open Project] list button on the timeline.

2) Click [Restore Offline Clip].

Note

  • Registered clips that are reference AVI files will be marked as offline clips if any part of the source is moved. In such cases, the offline clips cannot be restored.

    The reference AVI is a file containing only the audio data entity and destination information, developed by Grass Valley with its own extension within a range of the specification. It is different from regular AVI files.

  • Files can be captured or restored only when matching the following conditions:

    • Video information exists.

    • The reel name is set.

    • Source file extensions are *.avi, *.m2t, *.mov, or *.mxf.
