  • Temporary Project Files

    Hello. I have a question about the .$pi files that are created along with edius project files (.epi). I assume these .$pi files are temporary files and are only used during editing. Is there a particular reason edius does not delete them between uses of a project? Are they being saved as backups? Thanks.

    They're used in cases where something causes the application to quit unexpectedly. EDIUS would use these to attempt to get you back to where you were prior to the shutdown.

    The system has been changed in later versions of EDIUS.

    As to whether you need them - if you have saved your project in its finished state and the application is closed normally, you do not need these additional files.
