  • Premiere Pro Location of Video Preview and Conformed Audio files (Drive)

    In the past I’ve placed the programme file on the OS drive, the video clips on another drive with the timeline and the video preview and conformed audio files on still another drive. Three drives involved in all.

    Thinking to put the video clips (in one folder of a primary folder) and video preview and conformed audio files (another folder of a primary folder) and timeline (in root of the primary folder) on one drive together to keep all the files together. Mainly to keep track of all files.

    Any suggestions appreciated….

    Cheers,
    Bill

    I keep the assets and the project on the video drive, and the preview files on another. So basically, I keep stuff that needs to be archived on one, and stuff I regularly delete on another. Then I back up old projects on external drives so it does not take so long to defrag, which I do regularly.

    Do you think that this approach of putting video preview and audio preview files on a separate drive will speed up the editing processing time?

    I doubt it will speed it up. But it will be less likely to have errors caused by a bottleneck. And it is easier to clean up the drive by deleting everything, defragging, and starting your preview files for the next project from scratch – when you have nothing but deletable files on the disk.
