here’s what should be archived
- Default Save
- the important step Saves (save as or save incremental)
- all the releveant 3d objects
- if space is an issue keep only the used ORIGINAL media files.
to clean up your project go in the used filter in the File Manager: and keep only those files.
notes about that filter: it will check all open sequences in your project. so in order to cleanup you’ll have to export (right click on the sequence > export) and delete all the sequences (right click on the sequence > delete) that are not your main show.
depending on your version here’s 3 things you need to be careful of:
used/unused don’t show the original files before Photon 9.3 so you’ll need to manualy find those file to archive them
used/unused don’t show the media files used in graphs (video nodes or particles sprites) before Photon 9.3 so you’ll need to manualy find those file to archive them
archiving Controler’s VCI files isn’t usefull since they are not full res. the only media that should be archived are the originals.
