Collect media keeps unnecessary files.

Post by Bassindaniel » Wed Jan 16, 2019 13:26

Hello.

After finishing working on a project in my studio i'm collecting the files using: Composition - Media Manager - collect media.

Today i noticed that even after deleting all unnecessary files - i can still see it (the files) in Media manager. (yes. I did deleted all unnecessary decks.......)
After collect - Its did collected all files :cry:

Recently updated GPU drivers but its not seems related.

Using:
Resolume arena 6.1.1
Windows 10
gtx 1080, 8700k, asus z370-g, 32 Ram

layer 4 - Mask layer (Mask mode - all below)
layer 3 - Video layer
layer 2 - Video layer with one NDI source
layer 1 - Video layer


Any ideas how to refresh Media manager info?

Daniel.

Did you close and re-open media manager after removing your content?
If so, looks like you still have a reference to your file somewhere.

When you say you deleted the decks you mean you Removed the decks instead of Closing them right?

Check your composition, I'm quite sure the file is used in one of the clips.
If you're really sure it is not, you could share your composition with us, and we could take a look.

Thanks for the composition!
The file is in a closed deck named "vjDXV".
You can open it up by browsing to the composition in the Compositions panel and dragging it to the deck buttons. After this, you can remove it if you'd like, and media manager shouldn't list the file any more.
