    all i want to do is keep all timeline content, and therefore trimmed source material - so far very unreliable indeed - dropping most of the audio and random clips vanish.
    The trimming function when consolidating a project do not work with mpeg, mp3, wma, wmv etc files....

    It works just fine for me when working only with DV, WAV and HQ files

Right now I work around that by exporting each item as an AVI file, to be able to import them into each session. Just wondering if Edius is working on it to make it available.

    G'day Ted.
    Not sure I understand you, but if you are trying to edit each of the sessions as separate projects and then want to combine the 4 sessions (4 separately edited projects into 1 combined project), then I think you can.

    Just create a project for each session, edit them to finished, then merge project 1 (session 1 to edited project 2 (session 2)) and merge that to 3 then that to 4. This will give you your 4 sessions compiled and merged into 1 long job that is comprised of the 4 shorter ones.

    If you want to play safe, as you merge each time, do a save as for the new combined prj then undo the merge and save back to the original file name you had prior to the merge. You should then have your original pre merged prj and a new one that is merged. Then re-open the newly merged job and add the next session to it.

    I think this works but not sure if this is the deal you want .

    In Edius that is called Sequences.

    Something for the fix it people maybe.

    Meanwhile, we both go where we know it safe and relatively predictable.

    Hi Peter,

    mmmm, just trying this out really, as i've never bothered with it before cos its just unsafe - but I'm testing with an old project. There appears to be no option to retain renders in 4.24, all i want to do is keep all timeline content, and therefore trimmed source material - so far very unreliable indeed - dropping most of the audio and random clips vanish. I'm not sure how it supposed to behave with multiple sequences also.

    Not sure Paul, don't use it (don't trust it).

    But you might want to check that your settings are right to retain rendered clips on exiting any given project. That could be a source of concern.

    started a topic consolidating a project

    consolidating a project

    Is this correct that when consolidating a project any rendered to timeline clips are not retained?
