Project size increased drastically for no reason

  • Updated 2 years ago
  1. I Exported my project file as a zip and it was 46.7 MB.
  2. Someone Imported the zipped project and worked on it and did some minor edits and changes.

  3. They then exported the project file to a zip. This file was now 1.76 GB. What happened? Is there anything that might have happened to balloon the project so much?

  4. I removed unused media and it only went down to 1.73 GB.

Any help here? I'm at a loss.

we need much more detail

can you load the original project [from your original zip], and post a screenshot of the entire project on the timeline at max zoom out [ctl-shift-7]

also load the new zip and do the same

please make sure that the media bin is in the view

that way, we can do a visual compare
