In this simple tutorial we show you how to trash Final Cut Pro X's renders. It's easy and you can choose between deleting a Project or a Library's Renders right in the app. No folders to navigate or original files deleted by mistake!
There are a few reasons why you might want to trash your Final Cut Pro X renders.
So how exactly do you trash the renders?
We would suggest you start by making sure that the Background Rendering option is turned off in the Preferences. Why? Well after you trash the Preferences, they will start rendering again!
Select the Project you want to delete the renders for.
Go: File/Delete Generated Project Files
You will then get a drop-down screen with options.
Select 'Delete Render Files' then hit OK and they should be deleted! They will be removed from the internal Library and external cache locations.
As you can see from the list, you also have the option to delete Optimised and Proxy media.
It's the same principle as trashing a Project's renders, but this time, you must have just the Library selected in the Browser.
Go: File/Delete Generated Library Files
This time you will get a drop-down screen similar to the previous but with the option to delete all or just unused renders.
Choose what you want to delete and then click OK.
One word of warning here. Depending on the size of Library and the speed of your storage, it can take a few seconds to tens of seconds to complete the task.
If you try to quit Final Cut Pro X before all the renders have deleted, you will get a message warning that you are interrupting the process.
