Delete a Movie
Movie files are generally quite large, so space on your hard drive must be managed and organized especially if you do not have any external storage.
- Drag the movie package to the trash can in the dock.
- Make sure Finder is the active by clicking on the desktop.
- Select Finder from the main menu bar and choose Empty Trash.
- The Finder shortcut to trash a file is COMMAND+DELETE. To empty the trash, the shortcut is SHIFT+COMMAND+DELETE.
When you delete a movie file, we recommend saving the timeline file, so you can link it back to the movie. Timelines are very small data files, often no more than 20KB. It is a common practice to export the video to a dvd or tape for archiving purposes, then recapture the video and match the coded information back to movie. To do this, create a folder, call it Timelines, then open a movie, click on the timeline window and select File > Save as. Save the file in the Timelines folder. Now, you have your timeline data saved and it can be matched back up to the video at a later date.
