Managing Your Render Files

Rendering produces render files that are actual media files stored on your hard disk,
the same as your captured media. Video and audio render files are saved to the disks
you specify in the Scratch Disks tab of the System Settings window. For more
information, see Volume IV, Chapter 23, “Choosing Settings and Preferences.”

When you’re working on multiple projects or a highly complex project, render files can
accumulate very quickly. It’s important to manage your render files to maximize your
disk space.

Note: If you run out of disk space during the rendering process, a dialog appears giving
you the option to delete old render files and free up disk space.
