Deleting Files from DepthKit Projects

What’s the best way to delete takes from a project in Depthkit? Thanks.

@JasonGray There are two ways to delete takes from a Depthkit.

  • Delete Media Files: In the Depthkit project bin, delete (or move to an external folder for safety) the folders for each recording you want to remove. This will result in a smaller project bin that’s faster to upload/download/transfer/etc., but when you open the project in Depthkit, it will result in Unlinked Media warnings (pink triangles) in the Depthkit Edit context’s Clip list.
  • Modify the Project JSON: MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE YOU DO THIS! Open the dkproject.json in an editor - I like Atom because you can collapse JSON objects to navigate easily. Locate the "recordings": {...} object. Within it is a list of take objects containing all of the data of each take - e.g. TAKE_05_11_11_20_00: {...} - Simply delete (or move to a separate document for safety) the entire take object, including the contents of the curly braces (and the following comma if it’s not the last object in the list), and save the JSON. This will remove any references to those media files in the Depthkit interface, and make your clip list shorter.
