odd audio file referencing
- Member Since

So I am a teacher working on a sweet video for a school assembly- (trying to not have a snore fest in the school). Here's the issue... my audio files, from Itunes are seeming to be referenced from the school's server rather than the local disk. Thus slowing everything down and making the video impossible to view. Any way to change that setting?

First, what editing software are you using?
Third, start iTunes, highlight one of the problem songs, and do a command-I (get info) on the file to see where iTunes thinks the file is. Click the Summary tab if it isn't highlighted and near the bottom you see the path to the file. If it says it is on the server, then iTunes did not copy the file onto your local disk.
I'm not sure of the optimal way to do this, but one way might be to create a local folder and stick the songs you want in it, then drag or import them into you local iTunes library. You might want to first drop the songs from iTunes else the duplicate listing may confuse you and your edit. Also, you'll have to remove the songs from you current edit and reimport them. If iTunes has a way to copy the songs from the server without doing all the above, that may save you from reimporting the songs into the edit.
Lets hope an iTunes expert sees this.CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.
