  • WaveForm Cache File (.ewc2)

    New to Edius, after I import a video file into the bin, Edius puts a WaveForm Cache File (.ewc2) at the file location. Is there a way to stop this ? Thanks

      So you don't want a waveform?

        The ewc2 file is the audio waveform that you see on the timeline. Without that file you don't see it. For the sake of cleanliness in your media folders, it would be nice if the ewc2 files were always created either in a waveform subfolder of the media or in a specific waveform cache folder in the project folders instead of alongside the media, but that isn't the way it is. Perhaps the new stricture that Edius X is moving towards will allow for a cleaner setup.

          Thanks, I did not know what the file was for . It would be nice if GV would separate the files

            In the meanwhile you can left click the Type-Options (see screenshot, blue arrow) > check all files-suffixes you wish to see (but let the suffix for Edius waveform chache un-checked)
