Storing file paths or unique id?


#1

Was looking through the Tracktion .trkedit file and noticed that the “clips” don’t store the path to the file, but an unique id.
Was wondering what the advantage of doing this is over storing the path?

Can’t really remember, but probably to avoid problems with paths becoming invalid when you move the project around.
