IMPORTANT: Whenever possible, keep a show’s media files in a folder that is located in the same folder as the WATCHOUT show file, or in a sub-folder. This allows the software to use relative file access paths, making it easier to move the show to another disk or computer. You can use the Consolidate To command to organize all files in this way.
