Saving Trimmed Clips

Hi - I've been trying to save the trimmed clips in Vegas 8.0 and it tells me that there are new "trimmed" clips being saved - but in reality - they are exactly the same as the original clips. In fact they ARE the original clips - but with a different name.

Is there a trick that I'm missing? The clips are edited in the time line. I click - save as - and check the create trimmed media button, and then go - but and it goes through what appears to be a saving process, but when I open explorer - the clips are precisely the same as before.

Suggestions?

Did you render them to a new folder?

If the trimmed clips exist in your Project Media, right-click one of them and select "Explore Containing Folder". This will take you to their current location... Vegas might be saving them somewhere different.

I thought when you trimmed clips on the time line it just saved meta data for those clips, it didnt resave them individually?

Some types of media can't be trimmed. In that case, the source footage is copied. What's your source files?

OK thanks for the replies! I was out this afternoon.

So I was actually looking at them in Windows explorer - and they were being saved in the same folder as the original clips.

But it could be that it was because the source files were h.264 files. I'll give it a shot with AVI files and see what happens.

Thanks folks,
Milt
