Cached clips in Creative Finishing applications contain references to physical files residing in the media cache folder (a.k.a. "Autodesk Media Storage", "ManagedFolder" or "StorageMedia"). This article provides instructions on locating the frame files associated with a clip.
Perform the following tasks to obtain the filenames and paths of frames in a clip.
Save the required clip segment to an empty library (top-level folder).
Type the following command to get the frame IDs for both the hi-res and low-res media: /usr/discreet/io/bin/dlfsdump -fs stonefs7 -path <project name>/workspace/<library name> -frameids
For example, if your project is called MyProject and the library is called MyFolder: /usr/discreet/io/bin/dlfsdump -fs stonefs7 -path MyProject/workspace/MyFolder -frameids
Note: the example above assumes that the project has only one workspace. If you have more than one workspace, use the name of the workspace where the library is located, e.g. "workspace", "workspace1", "workspace2", etc.
The command displays a list of frame IDs associated with the library.
Type the following command to get the metadata associated with a frame: /usr/discreet/sw/tools/sw_view_image -f <frame ID> -n
where <frame ID> is a frame ID extracted with the dlfsdump tool. For example: /usr/discreet/sw/tools/sw_view_image -f 0x108000787000006b -n
This command displays the metadata associated with the frame, including the file path on the media storage.
