  • 12,000 render files...HELP!

    Stay calm.
    I have a very long doc that we have been working on since last year. No renders have ever been deleted. The Render folder is on a USB 2 external drive.

    G: drive = 750 gigs
    90% full
    370 gigs of render files totaling 12,000

    I'd like to delete some files to save space on this very, very full drive.

    The options are "delete all" or "delete unused".
    What defines "unused"?
    How does Edius create, manage, save, and delete render files?
    I know nothing.


    Vista 64 * Asus P6* Intel i7 920 @ 2.67 GHz CPU * 12 gigs Corsair * Nvidia GTX 275 * WD 150 gig 10,000 rpm System drive * (2) Hitachi 750 gig Video drives * (2) WD 1 TB Video drives * HD Spark * Edius 6.02, Imaginate, Adobe AE, Photoshop, Illustrator

    Unused means it's no longer used in the project. Render files should be specific to the individual project unless you've saved or started one project in another project's existing folder.

      Unused = any clips within the rendered folder that are not referenced on that timeline at that moment.

      So basically, if you rendered something, and then deleted it or changed and rerendered, the original render file will be deleted (the source clip remains intact, of course).

        In the BIN sort on the "Timeline Reference Count" column till all the clips with "0" appear at the top
        Select the top one and then scroll down to the end of the "0" entries
        Select the last one while holding the shift key (Select all)
        Now right click and select "Delete Files" and they will be gone from the BIN and from the HARD DRIVE so be carefull
