I forgot to add my setup as I'm sure that will be questioned.
Mac Pro 5,1 12 x 2.93Ghz with 48GB Ram
Nvidia Quadro 4000 (Hardware ME enabled)
Latest OSX, Cuda and Nvidia drivers installed
Media Cache is stored on one internal SSD with the Media DB files stored on another internal SSD
Another interesting point is that when loading the project after deleting all of the media cache eveything works much faster including the loading of clip thumbnails etc. I would prefer to be able to not have Premier create a cache at all, if it works so well without the cache files then why bog the system down with them?
Have you updated Premiere Pro CS6 yet?
Hi Kevin. Yes, I have the latest version istalled.
There are some new preferences related to the media cache and XMP files under Media that might help your situation. Have a play there while I try to find out the specifics.
