Chapter 10. Rendering > Managing Render Files

Managing Render Files

Render files are valuable media elements. You can invest considerable time in a single complex rendering process. Rendering produces actual media files on your hard disk, like your original captured media files. Final Cut Pro names the render files according to its own internal naming protocols. You will not be able to identify individual render files by their file names, so planning your render file management strategy is a critical part of your post-production work.

Specifying storage locations for render files

You can specify multiple disk locations for storing render files. You can specify up to five disks for storing captured video, captured audio, or render files. As you create render files, Final Cut Pro will store them on the disk with the most available space. If you don't specify disk locations, Final Cut Pro saves video and audio render files in separate folders (called Render Files and Audio Render Files), which are located, along with your Capture Scratch folder, in the Final Cut Pro Documents folder (Figure 10.31). Render files are media files and should be stored on the same media drives as your captured media.
