If there are existing sessions on any currently mounted drive(s), the icon ring on the Home Page will default to the Open icon (Figure 47).
Selecting Open causes the Sessions List to appear at right. This pane shows all sessions stored on currently mounted drives. The Session Name and video format for each is listed separately under a header named for the storage volume they are located on (Figure 48).
Note: Media configured as Read-only is not shown for the New or Open (session) features, since they cannot be used for sessions. However, Read-only media can be used for import purposes.
Right-click a session name to open a context menu with two items listed in it: Rename and Delete. The Delete function should be used thoughtfully, as it cannot be undone.
All content stored in the named session’s folders on currently mounted drives will be deleted. This will include clips, images and audio files associated with the session.
Note: Content that is not local to the session but which was used in it is not deleted. For example, you may have added still images to your PLAY LIST directly from a USB thumb-drive, doing so without actually importing the files into the session. Those external files will not be deleted.
OPENING A SESSION
Just as you were able to select an icon on the ring using the left and right arrow keys, you can highlight a name in the Session List using the keyboard Up and Down arrows – then press the Enter key to open the session (or simply click the session name with the mouse to open it immediately). Selecting a session takes you away from the Home page to the Session page.
Let’s look at the other Home page features briefly before we go on to open a session, though.
