Default Delete unused tracks in PTF

Cloud space says it's filling up... but doesn't seem to delete tracks I'm not using.

And not able to delete takes.

Any ideas?

Default Re: Delete unused tracks in PTF

Deleting Tracks
When you delete tracks, your audio or MIDI clip data remains in the project, but your arrangement of the clips on the deleted track will be lost.

The Delete Track command cannot be undone.
To delete a track:

1 Click the name of the track in its track channel strip to select it.
To select multiple tracks, Command-click (Mac) or Control-click (Windows) additional Track Names.
To select a range of tracks, Shift-click additional Track Names.

2 Do one of the following:

Choose Track > Delete.

In the Track List, or Mix or Edit window, Right-click the track name and select Delete.

3 Click OK to remove the selected tracks from the project.


You should also remove any unused clips to save space in your project.

Thanks for the reply.

How do you remove unused clips?

Also, when I delete a track, I still see it in the Clout to be downloaded in the Tracks. They never disappear - and keep taking up space.

Thanks

How do you delete clips? It seems like it's not possible, or am I missing something?

Deleting Underlying Clip Data
When removing a clip or selection, you can choose to remove or keep the underlying clip data.

To delete a clip or selection along with the underlying clip data:
Choose Edit > Cut.

To delete a clip or selection without removing the underlying clip data:
Choose Edit > Clear.

So what if I have a bunch of takes that recorded over the same track.. the clips and waves are still part of the project.

Or.. if a clip has been cleared.. how do you delete it.

And how do you get to a list of everything in the project that is taking up space in the cloud to remove files to free up space?

I don't think you can - I think the project just grows until it's too big.

But maybe I just don't know how to do it. In Pro Tools SE, you would just delete clips from the clip list. There is no clip list in Pro Tools First that I can see.

I don’t know why they removed the clip list from PTF, but see this article for a workaround.

The sentiment of the author of the work around is right... why remove the feature? I think it's because it's designed to fill up your cloud space with no way to remove files.. so it eventually forces you to upgrade your cloud.

And the work around lets you remove the files from your computer - which is no different than navigating to them in File Explorer. But either way, the cloud space doesn't shrink..
