In AVID project select and open a BIN to import audio into

Go to >File>Import and navigate to the folder that contains the audio files that are to be imported.

Select all the files to be imported
Select the Destination drive as the EditShare Volume
Select Open to begin importing

The files will import into the bin.

The way to tell the audio is now imported correctly to the EditShare is that the Icon will change to this. See there is a little foot on the icon?

This is an Audio Icon of media on a local storage drive. If you don't see the little foot then the media is not on the EditShare and has to be reimported.

OPEN THE PROJECT ON ANOTHER LAB COMPUTER CONNECTED TO THE EDITSHARE TO MAKE SURE THAT THE AUDIO IS LOADING IN THE PROJECT AND WILL NOT BE OFFLINE WHEN YOU TURN IN THE FINAL VERSION.
Open your project on another computer and if you discover that the imported SFX and Music are offline in your project you can "Batch Import" to fix this problem. Making sure your re-import or Batch Imported files end up on the EditShare

Select the timeline that contains the offline sound effects and music in your AVID Project


Go to >Clip>Batch Import.

Select Offline only

When the importing dialog appears, notice that AVID will give you the path of the file location when imported before they went offline.

As shown in this graphic the old location of these files was inside of a folder called: "D2" that was on the Volume called "Your Hard Drive"

Next will need to Select "Set File Location"

Navigate to where the file is saved on the hard drive.


There will be a hint in the header of the window telling you what file you are looking for.


Select Open

In the Batch Import window all the clips will be located for you and all that you need to do is change the Import Target location to The EditShare



Then Click Import

The audio will import and relink with the clips and subclips as well as sequences that reference these files.
