Can I trash my Render Files Folder
on Nov 15, 2009 at 10:59:59 pm

Hey guys
I am done with a project. I am wanting to move it over to an external hard drive. Everything moves over fine except the Render Files Folder. I am wondering if I can just delete this or do I need to figure out why it won't drag to my external?
I guess, if someone can tell me the downfall of deleting it completely and if I need to keep them, can someone tell me why it is not moving to my external?
From this point forward I have got to figure out a way to stay organized (maybe buy Shane's tutorial) but for now, please help me out.
thanks
jared

I've no idea why you can't copy your render files. Sounds like something's not right. Are the files locked for some reason? Not having them only matter when you want to work on your project in the future. Then you have to re-render. Checkout this post about using Media Manager to copy a project to an external drive. http://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/8/1062507

so just to make sure i understand... you are saying that if i ditch all my render files and toss that entire folder in the trash i can still come back later and everything will open fine, nothing will have to be "reconnected" but i will have to re-render the timeline just to get it back up to snuff to work on... that sound right?

Correct. Deleting your render files will have no ill affect other than requiring you to render your project again.

is final cut open when you are trying to copy the folder? it might be because final cut is using them. i can't really think of any other reason why it wouldn't copy.

just realized my TB external is set up as FAT32... i wonder if the 4GB file size limit is causing the error? anyone?

Yep. Never edit with a Windows formatted drive with FCP.

On the brightside...drives today are much less costly than they used to be. Plus you'll have an extra TB drive around for later projects.
