Large render files

So here is the thing I have just got slammed with tapeless media and things are going pretty good, but recently my render files seem super large, I understand with xd cam footage everthing is larger but even on hdv stuff that is coming in they are huge, for example i just did a two minute piece that was half ex1 and half canon xha1 and the render files are 775 gb the project had about 4 hours of footage loaded. i dont understand what is up any help would be great.

OK, what are you calling the "render files?" The files in the RENDERS folder on the capture scratch? Or the files that you converted the tapeless media to? Meaning the XDCAM EX footage, converted to ProRes. Are you talking about the ProRes converted files?

4 hours of ProRes 1920x1080 at 29.97fps is 300GB.

Delete those render files (ONLY if they are in the RENDERS folder...delete NOTHING from the Capture Scratch folder. That is your media), and then re-render. YOu might have old render files that are just hanging on.

I will try that again. I was thinking that was it before and tried with a different project but let me try it again. another good example is i have a 2 minute piece i shot on ex1 it has a small amount of graphics and music, the total size of all footage is 30 gb but the render files are 790gb i just don;t understand it , i have never had this issue before so it must be some setting or something i did , the weird things is it is not just xd cam footage even hdv footage is giving me large render files. thanks for you help i will try the re-render again if you think of anything please let me know.

Final cut has a render manager - use this to examine and clean up your renders.

Best,
