    Automatic deletion of unused rendered media (effects)

    Is there any way to get MC to automatically delete render files related to clips with applied effects that have been deleted from a timeline - just to avoid having to weed them out manually afterwards?

    No, there's not. 

    Storage space is cheap, and I've never run into a situation where unused rendered media caused me a problem, so personally, I'd rather not have to worry about making sure my (hypothetical) automatic render deletion setting didn't conflict with my (actual) undo capability.

    Open bins with the sequences which have the render files you'd lke to keep

    Go to Media Tool

    Choose particular drives and projects

    Select 'Precompute Clips - Rendered Effects' then click Okay.

    Once the Media Tool lists the render files 'right click' and choose 'Select - Unreferenced Clips'

    Delete the clips
