Lesson 10. Managing Media > Reconnecting Media to a Project

Reconnecting Media to a Project

Whenever you add a file to your project, a corresponding object appears in the Canvas, in the Timeline, and on the Layers tab. Adding a file to a Motion project does not create duplicate files for it. Instead, it creates connections to the original file on your hard drive. Each object in the project is always connected to the corresponding media file on your computer.

A media file that is connected to a project is referred to as being online. You can think of all the objects in a project as a family. Some projects consist of a small family of objects that all live together in the same folder on the computer, and some projects consist of large, extended families of objects living on multiple drives and in multiple locations on the computer. In either case, as long as the objects (family members) don't move after they've been added to a project, they will remain connected to the project.
