Being fairly new to CS5, things are coming up that I simply do not understand and hope someone can enlighten me.
What I want to know if what I am experiencing everytime I open the project is normal.
In my project I have P2 footage - 5 cards with about 30 clips per card. Whenever I import a card (folder), it leaves in the project panel the following: BMP files, MXF files and then the clips combining audio and video. Why does it do this or am I doing something wrong on import. All I need is the clip, but the BMP and MXF files appear as well.
Now, if I close the project and reopen at any time, in the bottom left corner, it loads all the files starting over 5000. It takes forever to load everything - why does it need to load the files everytime I open the project?
Drives me nuts.
am I doing something wrong on import.
Yes. Use the Media Browser feature for solid state media. That will show you only the clips, with audio 'attached'. Import from there.
