If you delete projects daily and can do it with your eyes shut then this tutorial will be of little or no interest to you.But, believe you me, if you are doing this for the first time, and you are ready to press the "OK" button, your whole life flashes before you!This tutorial is a record of my very first complete deletion of a project.Regards,Douglas
Great stuff, Andrew!A goldmine of tips!Anyone else want to add their words of wisdom?
(Larry Rubin sent mr a long list of Media management ideas about 6 months ago.But I never got round to doing anything - see the reasons below)I will let the dust settle on this one, then do a couple of follow Tutorials to cover what you all add.
I have steered clear of Media Managament in my tutorials for 2 main reasons:
1. I have not had to use it in any big way myself, as my editing is very low level and basic.and
2. There is so much it can do and in so many ways that I hadn't a clue where to start.Now things are looking up!
Good job, Douglas!
One additional tip - always set up an "offline" view for the timeline display, so that any media that is offline will show up as bright red clips in the timeline. This makes it much easier to see at a glance whether or not you have media offline in any given sequence. For more complex and longer sequences, you may need to expand the timeline a bit to make sure that extremely short clips that may be offline are visible.

It scans your system for Avid projects.
Highlight the project you want to delete and hit delete and it will remove the project, media, attic, etc. Well, once you get past the confirm delete screen.
