How to manage media cache files in Premiere Pro CS5.5?

Mar 9, 2012 7:56 AM

I hope my question is not too complicated but I still haven't figured this one out.

Here goes:

Whenever I open a project in Premiere Pro, the media cache files used are always the same ones from a prior project.

For example, if I open project ABC, the scratch disk used, the media cache and media cache files are from the ABC project file.

Then, if I open another document, XYZ, the scratch disk and the media cache files are again stored in the ABC project file.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE SETTINGS SO THE SCRATCH DISK AND MEDIA CACHE ARE THE ONES SPECIFIC TO THE PARTICULAR PROJECT I OPEN?

So I don't have to move all the cache files manually or change the settings in Premiere every time I open a project.

Sorry for the long description. Thanks for your help. Daniel Martel. Quebec. Canada.

    You can't (unless you want to store them next to the originals, a proposition I find untenable).  Some of the scratch disk settings are stored at the project level (things like video and audio previews), but the one's you're talking about are global - one setting for the whole program.

     

    I don't like that arrangement myself.  ALL scratch disks should be stored per project.
