    What  areaudio extracted files?

    Level 1
      Does any know what audio extracted files are? I found a bunch in my project bin; that under properties I discovered were located in my Captured Files folder (where I directed captured video and audio to go). I deleted them thinking that they were extraneous and taking up too much space, but I later ran into problems rendering as mpegs, so (though Im not sure it is related) I restored them.

      Could they come when I render and replace audio clips? I tried to render and replace several times when the audio dropped out periodically on some clips.

          That's exactly when they are created.

            So I suppose the question should be: what exactly does render and replace do? Why use it?

            I tried render and replace out when weird little inexplicable drop-outs in sound appeared in my audio. It seemed to work. (...Then the question might be: why would drop outs in the audio clips appear seemingly out of nowhere?)

            At any rate, once I restored the extracted files, the mpeg media encoder rendered without a problem. I guess Ill keep them (but they are adding many extra megabytes to my hard drive.)

              It creates new audio files (render), and replaces the ones on the timeline with the new ones.

              Don't know, never have. (At least not manually. The same process occurs automatically when you do an Edit in Audition or Edit in Soundbooth.)

              Well, an editor should really have hard drives with triple digit GIGAbytes of space, so a few Megabytes won't mean much.
