    Pre-rendered media naming

    joshtownsend Level 2
      Is there any logic in the prerender file names? Say I have an hour long show and I just want to find the AE comps I pre-rendered to save just those and erase everything else?

      BTW I'm getting sick perfomance from AME now. Going from 1080 dvcprohd files to one-pass dvd using prerendered video it takes a minute to render one minute. The comp takes a minute or two to load before the rendering starts, but wow this is fast for Vista 32 4 gig ram q9550 quad at 3.7 air cooled.

          I've not been able to deduce any sort of logical pattern. It's all gibberish, near as I can tell.

          I was kind of disappointed to see that in CS4, while there are some new options for rendering, there is still a giant black hole when dealing with unused renders. There is no "Delete Unused Renders" function. I used to do this all the time on Avid with the Media Tool. Select your sequence, tell the Media Tool to find all media relatives, invert the selection, and delete--wham. I personally think it would be useful to be able to purge old, unused renders without deleting ALL renders.

          Your question brings me to another point: why is there no "render and replace" function for DL'ed AE comps in PP? That would pretty swell...

            Now that would be a useful function, more so than speech to text (if only because it would likely work a lot better.)

              Yeah that kills me.........Having reopen each AE project and collect files then point Premiere to the new AE comp.

              I also that no AE project files are created when you reduce with Project Manager.

              And as far as the Delete unused renders. Man I had to open my comps then check the 'date accessed' in Windows Explorer to find out which ones where still be used in a project I been fiddling with for a month or so.
