Export project metadata
Open the Project Browser and select some or all of the indexes. Turn on Summarise sequences and Extra detail and turn off other settings. Then click the CSV to export a CSV file.
Now this CSV can be dropped into a new project on the same or on a different computer. See Import project metadata below...
If moving the indexes to a different project the existing ones can be deleted.
Export archive of all projects
In the File menu choose Export... then YoYotta Archive.
Choose a location to save the file.
Then if you need to restore it, quit YoYotta, unzip the archive and drop the YoProjects folder into the /Users/Shared/YoYotta folder.
This will replace all the existing projects on the computer.
Moving projects to a new computer
Quit YoYotta on the old computer.
Run YoYotta once on the new computer and then quit YoYotta.
Copy the YoProjects folder from the old computer to the new computer. Open the Finder to /Users/Shared/YoYotta and replace the existing YoProjects folder.
This will replace all the existing projects on the new computer.
To merge projects from one computer to another, export required projects and import them as shown above.
Backup project metadata
Export a YoYotta Archive as shown in the previous section. Or run Time Machine and include the folder /Users/Shared/YoYotta/YoProjects.
Moving presets to a new computer
In Finder Go menu select Go to Folder... and enter ~/Library/Application Support/YoYotta/Presets
Copy the required plist preset files into the same folder on the new Mac.
Finally open the Preferences panel and manually set the same preferences.
Do not copy any other Application Support files or folders.
Import v2 projects
v3 uses a new project format, if you only have a few tapes and drives, then it's quick to reindex them.
This is best as v3 indexes every file, whereas v2 only indexed common video, audio and metadata files.
Otherwise export your v2 projects and import them into v3.
Run v2 (608) or newer and follow these instructions to Export All Projects.
Run v3 (60) or newer and then import project assets as shown in previous section.
