How To: Transfer a RaceRender Project to Another Computer

RaceRender saves project files with a .RRP file extension. These project files contain configuration data and pointers to the input files (video, audio, images, data sources, etc.) on your system that you used in the project. RaceRender is designed to be flexible enough to move projects from one computer to another, but you may need to tell it where to find the media files on the recipient computer.

  • The recipient computer must have RaceRender installed. It is strongly recommended that both computers use the same version of RaceRender.

  • Projects created with RaceRender Deluxe, Advanced, or Ultimate may make use of features which don't allow them to be opened with RaceRender Free, or may cause them to display or behave differently when they are.

  • The recipient computer will need to be given the RaceRender Project file (.RRP file extension) as well as all media files that the project uses.

  • If your input files are in the same folder as where you had RaceRender save the .RRP project file (or they're in a sub-folder of it), it should use relative paths and work automatically as long as you maintain that relationship on the recipient computer.

  • If your input files were instead in a location such as "C:\Videos" and your RaceRender Project file was saved in a completely different location like "C:\Documents and Settings\SomeUser\My Documents", then it will not find those files on the recipient computer, unless they were put into a folder with the same name and path as on the original computer.

  • When input files are not found in the expected locations, RaceRender will display a message when opening the project, but it will not remove them from the project. This allows you to correct the problem by going into the Input File Configuration screen for each file that it couldn't find, and then clicking on the "Change File Selection" button to locate the file on that computer.
