Once you’ve copied the bundle to the new Mac, don’t move the workspace file out of the folder. If you want to do that for any reason, be sure to open it and then save it at least once first, which will permit QLab to correctly identify the associated media files. After that happens, QLab is able to keep track of the relative locations of all the files. You can then move things anywhere you like.
When bundling, QLab will also generate lists of the AudioUnits used in the workspace, if there are any, and the fonts used in Titles cues.
It’s important to remember that only media that’s targeted by a cue in the workspace will be copied.
But here’s the thing: If you keep your workspace in a folder, and you also keep all the media for your workspace within that folder, or in sub-folders within that folder, then you do not need to bundle a workspace to move it. QLab will remember the relative locations of files within the folder that contains the workspace.
This is in contrast to how QLab 2 and earlier versions of QLab 3 worked. Trying this trick with QLab 2 or QLab 3.0.x would not have gone well. Trying it now (with QLab 3.1 or later) will work.
