I have been rendering a lot of MPEG2 comps for a DVD series I'm producing. However, AE keeps creating .xmp and .xmpses files every time I render one out. I really don't want (or need, as far as I can tell) these cluttering up my directories.
Is there any way to force AE NOT to write them when exporting MPEG2? I thought maybe disabling the options under XMP Metadata in the Media & Disk Cache preferences section might work, but it has no impact.
There is an option ("Include Source XMP data") in the output module main screen, but I DO have that UNchecked, yet it still writes the XMP file(s). There is no option within the MPEG2 settings itself (i.e. Format Options).
