A Better Cache

PostThu Nov 05, 2020 6:48 pm

Right now we get this:

D:\CacheClip\6bf8a133-f33a-4662-9872-b818e1aa7d19\4850f182-069d-4d69-a22f-6ef99c1cf113\ac079a0c-234a-41d6-a72c-769c82b28edb\8d33f4e0-18b6-436e-9108-6e2cea2d7fca\SourceOne

I want to suggest this:

D:\CacheClip\%User\%Database\%Project\%Timeline

Cache Management would be soooo much easier.

This is the reason why I don't use optimised media and instead encode proxies outside of Resolve (well that and the lack of background processing) because the Cache is basically a black hole. You can delete the cache, you can delete optimised media, but you've no idea from one project to the next just how much space is taken up with that project let alone its individual timelines.

I'm sure something as fundamental as this would require a fair degree of recoding, but it would be a very welcome change.

A "manage storage" Tab in the project manager would be perfect imo.

Within each folder is an Info.txt file that contains some of the information you are looking for.

I can see some potentially issues this could cause for a possible future feature of Resolve but since cache compatibility isn't really important, I'm gonna +1 lol

Agreed. Just going into the file manager and nuking the CacheClip folder every few months isn't the most elegant solution but I'm not sure of a better approach right now..

This could also apply to Optimized Media in version 17, which now requires manual management.

Version 18 was just released. Not all Feature Requests can be done at once, and this one didn't make the cut.

So here it is for continued voting.

As a fellow software developer myself, I don't see how this would be hard to implement, unless the code base is not well written. Unless there are some problems, which I'm not seeing atm.

Storage management from the home window would be ideal.

Could be added to project list view, so you would have columns for Media, Proxy Media, Optimised Media, Cache and Gallery Stills with trash, copy and move options for each.
