Elements 10 - Location of temp video files

Hi all,

 

I imported a video into Elements 10 for Mac, and then it crashed while manipulating the video. When I restarted the project, the video clips don't appear anymore. However, my HDD still has lost space from the project. Can someone tell me where those files are stored so I can delete them to regain the 2GB of space lost?

 

Thanks

    Welcome to the forum.

     

    All Imported media files are stored where they were, when Imported. They are NOT in the PREL (Project) file, and PrE does not move them. See this article for more detail: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3397716#3397716

     

    Where were they, when Imported?

     

    Good luck,

    Well, when one Imports Video files, with Audio, there ARE some extra files, that are created. See this article for more background: http://forums.adobe.com/message/3892177#3892177

     

    That might fill in a few of the blanks.

     

    If not, do not hesitate to ask for clarification.

     

    Good luck,
