Storyline file size doubles after replacing media

Mar 29, 2017

Hi there

I'm working on a project with a lot of video files, and needed to replace all of the footage with lower res versions to reduce the file size.

Using: Edit video > Change video, I uploaded and replaced the old videos with new ones.

All is well except my Storyline file size has doubled as a result. i.e. The original video files are still contributing to the over all file size, even though they've been deleted.

Is there anyway I can see all the media resources in use within my project in some kind of library, and delete the older videos some how?

Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated :)

Hi Jon

I've noticed the 'save as' action is the one that causes the size blowout. I had a client who was building a module and doing save as over and over - the file size was 892MB despite it only having text and images in it. 

We created a brand new file and imported the slides in and saved it - 7.6MB - what a huge difference.
