As you know, Final Cut Express needs six folders for a project- Austosave Vault, Thumbnail Chache Files, Waveform Cache Files, Render Files, Capture Scratch, and Audio Render Files All these are [usually] in a folder called 'Final Cut Express Documents' Until recently I kept all this in the Documents folder, but when I was reorganizing my files, I decided that I should keep all my Final Cut stuff in the Movies folder. So I moved the 'FCE Docs' folder and it's contents to Movies, and then went to the 'system settings' in the Final Cut Express menu (picture 1) so FCE would recognize the change of location. This part is fine, all the media stayed online, and the new render files are saved in Movies. BUT when I open Final Cut, it will create a new folder called Final Cut Express Documents where the old one was (Documents). It will not create another one if one is already there. The unwanted folder is left empty, because all the things that were kept in it are now in Movies. But I don't want it to make this folder in the first place. The only things I can think of is if there is still some setting in FCE that I have missed. And I know I should be using an external hdd, but I'm not, and if somebody can come up with a compelling enough argument (along with a good answer), I might choose to make the switch. Edit: So there is no confusion, I am having no trouble using FCE itself, but I am just annoyed at the unneeded folder.
