That's what I need a stupid computer for: after I finished an edit with many tracks I would like to reduce this timeline to have just the clips which play a role into the final video - of course by creating a copy of the sequence. This would reduce the size of the consolidated project a lot. It's a huge difference to archive all the clips exissting in a sequence (standard consolidation) or if you save all the clips which are really "visible" in the final video. That would save a lot of time and disk-space. Especially editing of concerts produces a lot of material, during editing I have several tracks (I don't like multi-cam-editing) but I wish I could clean up by clicking a button 🙂

Might be useful for you to spend some time working with the multicamera workflow.  It's not exactly intuitive but it's very powerful once you've figured it out..     There is a command in the sequence menu called "simplify sequence."  Frankly, I have no idea what it does, but might be worthwhile to do some googling or maybe just duplicate your sequence and try it...

You're looking for the "simplify sequence" function.

Of course I know this function and as it was published I thought YESSSS, but it doesn' work this way I wish. If I have to deactivate umwanted clips first I also can delete them.

I'M doing this for a long time and sometimes I'm using Resolve in multicam-mode to re-edit live-edited stuff, but for my other work, multcam is not an option. The requested feature would be good for any project and the simplify-thing does not this job. They have to add an "delete unused/invisible clips" - option.

Not sure how simple this would be to implement from a programming point of view...  but suggest you make a feature request and then link to it in this thread so people can upvote it.

You say you'd expect to save disc space with this.

 

So are you expected it would mod the original video/asset files? So ... that it would cut away all the parts of the file you don't use, deleting those from disc?

 

If that's what you mean, that's  ... rather a terrifying suggestion to me.

Yes, it's possible to save disc space. After this requested feature the project manager could do the rest and create a new folder with a new slim project (with all used media, but now just the really used).

Thought, this is a feature request. Do I have to modify this somehow?
