Read http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1015001?tstart=0 to learn WHY the files must be combined... either by the Canon software, or by PPro by importing from the complete folder that you copy from camera to hard drive
I don't understand "double the amount of raw video storage space"
Does that mean you have BOTH one large file AND the individual files?
If it was me, and the one large file contained everything in the individual files, I would simply delete the individual files
Yes John, I have been keeping both the large combined files AND the individual files.
When I export the video files off the camera using the Canon utility, it exports the invidual 2GB files first. Then after that it, combines the files locally on my PC system source drive, leaving me with double amount of raw video space consumed on my source drive.
Thanks for pointing me to that thread John.
I had been importing using the Canon utility for the purpose of getting the meta-data along with the video. I will try some of the import methods suggested in that thread.
Well... do be careful of breaking a process that works
As I said last time, it is MY opinion that you don't need to keep the individual files once they have been combined by the vendor's program into an all inclusive large file
But, I don't use that software, so I can't be 100% sure about the need for the individual files
