|0000624||Cinelerra-GG||[All Projects] Bug||public||2022-11-25 14:13||2022-11-28 16:45|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000624: xml file keeps the past|
|Description||After rendering my project, I decided to start a new one without restarting CinGG.|
So I deleted all the tracks, clips, media and then created 3 new tracks.
So I have a project with only 3 tracks, one video and two audio.
So far, so good.
I save the project under another name and notice that its file is 203kb.
I open it in a text editor and notice that it contains 3528 lines.
So cinGG doesn't clean up the old project, it keeps the history and adds as it goes along.
Under these conditions, it is difficult to find your way around the xml file.
I have never noticed this before.
Is this normal?
|Steps To Reproduce||see description|
|Additional Information||see xml file|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Glad this is resolved. Will close in a couple of days.|
@Andrew-R @IgorBeg @PhyllisSmith
Many thanks to all three of you for your quick response.
I thought I had cleaned up my project completely but, as @IgorBeg discovered, I forgot to delete the clips.
I apologise for this.
So I just deleted those clips and I can confirm that I am left with a basic xml file.
I am very surprised that these clips took up so much space.
I thank you again and apologise for the inconvenience.
It is not a bug, @fary54.
I downloaded your project file (xml). In Cinelerra-GG, in Resource window -> Clips, there are a lot of stuff: Title plugins. They take up space in the project file.
If you delete them and save your project, using another name, you can see that the file will be smaller.
I have been trying to duplicate this a few times today but have not been successful. I might have seen it the first time I tried but got interrupted and now I can not reproduce what you see. Will keep looking to see what the problem might be. To me, it seems reasonable that it should keep the history so you can use "undo" to get back to where you should be.
I forgot to mention that my version of cinGG is the last image:
