Export all Media files to USB drive at once?


Arrived at a venue with media files on ColorSource 20 AV consoles.  I'd like to export all the media files to back them up.  There are several media files and folders.  The only method I've found to export a media file is to export all in the advanced settings.  Unfortunately this only exports a single media file, the currently selected one in the running show.  Is there another way to export media files?  I'd like to export them all.

Thank you,

Truth C.

  • I'll try again but the last time I tried it only exported the current media file in use.

  • I’ve tested “Export All” in the Advanced File settings a couple more times.  In version 3.0, and perhaps 2.__ as well, exporting of media files seems disabled .  The only media file I got was from initially using export all before I updated the firmware of a version 1.___ AV console.

    If it’s indeed possible to export a media file in version 3.0 then I’d like to know how.

     Have you tested this yourself?  Do you have a video? 

  • Hi Truth, the media files are embedded into the showfile so if you're looking for them on the flash drive you won't see them. Mind uploading your show file here so we can take a look?

  • That makes sense.  Thank you for the offer.

    Mind?  I do and I don't.  It's a privacy issue.  It's the venue's content, not mine.  I'd rather be able to take care of my own business but at least there's that option.  I imagine that your team cares about privacy too.

    Let me see what I can do on this end.

    Thank you.

  • Hi Truth - You can use my Dropbox Upload link to not post if publicly.  We never share anything without your express permission.

  • Hi Seth,

    In the process of doing that, I'm seeing that the largest .lsf show file I have is 40 KB.  That suggests that the embedded media files have been compressed.  If so, that would not be adequate. I'm interested in extracting the original files.
