I am consolidating media on my internal HD to make my upgrade from CS4 to CS6 and a new edit system as clean as possible. I came across folders called “Preview files” for a few projects and was wondering if I could delete the files within these folders and still be able to easily rebuild these projects in the future. I assume that the preview files are renders etc . File extentions on these files are either .cfa - .pek – or MXF with the word “rendered” as part of the file name. Please advise.
I also have projects and media related to on-going work that I intend to move onto the new system. Assuming I place the media on D drive (as before) and keep the same file structure and names, is there anything else I need to be concerned about?
Rendered Preivew files are OK to delee. If you reedit this project in the future you can regenerate them by rendering them again.
If anything changes with the media used in a project, PP will ask you for it's location when you reopen that project. Often times you show it to one file and it finds the rest, but not always.
