  • Deleting RAW P2 files

    Ok…lets say you have an entire disk of P2 files that you copied over, and it is all useless footage, so you throw it away. But you can’t empty the trash because they are all locked. Now say you have FIFTY such folders with all the Audio, Video, Clip, Icon…etc…and you need to throw them away but they are all locked. (Like you backed them up to their permanent home, and now need to get them off your capture drive).

    Do I have to manually unlock all the clips by getting info and clicking the LOCK box? This is painful.

    Use the Option Key with the Delete Key. 😉 On the last file you may have one left over and you will have to do it the hard way, but try putting them all in the rash and doing an Option Delete.

    Hope that helps,

    Oh you just ROCK!

    I hope we get permission to do that write up for you. I have been DYING to post my workflow.

    Thanks Jan.

    You know what Jan…I believe I met you. At DVExpo west. Jim and I were there looking at the HVX and Varicam footage. Just briefly though…Cathy was helping us and you were doing 500 things at once.

    So, you claim that Jan was only doing 500 things at once? She must have been on a break.

    Thanks Jan, for always being there. Other unnamed manufacturers need to take a lesson from you.

    And this is from a Sony F-900 guy looking for HD throwaway cameras for action films.
