So today I got a request from an old client to revisit an old project. Despite providing them with the master at the time of completion they've asked for me to supply a rendered video.
The problem I'm having is that it was 4 years + 3 Macs ago and despite having the project files and all the footage - when I fire up the project I get of dread red missing element screens - everywhere.
What I don't have is a record of the plugins used in the project. I've spent time today going through and reinstalling them in an effort to banish as many red missing elements. I wondered if there's an easy way to find what plugins were used at the point of mastering a project? I've restored 80% of the project so far but am left scratching my head as to what I've missed.
I am not at home right now, so I can't check. What I know for sure is that Library Manager puts a exclamation mark in the overview that indicates missing FILES. You can then hit "show list" or sth. like hat, and you'll get a list of all missing clips with their former paths. Perhaps this also works with effects/plugins. But as I said, I don't know. I also don't know if this feature is part of he free LM version.
