Delete multiple clips from Hard Disk?

PostMon Jul 02, 2018 5:17 pm

Hi there,

I tagged all the Clips for a project. I would like to delete the "Red flagged" clips from the hard drive. I created a smart bin to see all the clip. I know I can individually open the file location of each clip..

Is there a function to delete all the Selected clips from the Drive at once?

Cheers

Hi,

From the Storage Pool / Hard Disk!

use smart bin to isolate the flagged clips in media pool and then, one by one, use context menu to "reveal in media storage" once the clip is revealed in the media storage use context menu to "delete permanently". From what I know there is no way to permanently delete from media pool.

Thank you for your answer. So there is NO option to delete multiple clips from the disk.

I think it's very unwise to do this from the Media Pool. I think you're much better off doing this in the operating system directly.

One reason Media Management exists is so that you wind up with all the clips actually in the project, but no additional clips that are not in a timeline. To me, this is a better philosophy of getting rid of what you don't need -- plus it still preserves the original material on a different drive by leaving it alone.

To me, Permanent Deletion is a last resort you should only use under very special circumstances.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Well, for some people this might not be the case, but for me hard drive space is money. Since I shoot everything in RAW, I'd rather delete outtakes / bad clips than degrading to a lower codec. So being able to delete multiple clips from the NLE would be much appreciated...this for instance is possible in Adobe Lightroom or even smarter in Capture One Pro: you can transfer the files to a trash folder from within the software. This shouldn't be too hard to implement in Resolve.
