    Import sequence takes forever through media browser/dynamic link

    ohmypro Level 1

      I'm working on a project with a colleague: we have identically cloned media living on external drives, all the file structures are identical.  When they send me a sequence (export selection as premiere pro project) and I attempt to bring it into my project via the media browser, it takes minutes to bring in a three minute sequence. If the originating project contains a lot of info, I might watch the blue (Connecting to Dynamic Link Server) bar for up to five minute.  This is a severe drag on our process.  I've got 64GB Ram, so that shouldn't be an issue.

       

      When I did this in FCP7, it took seconds.  When I do it in Media Composer, its even faster.  Why does it take so long to bring in a simple sequence?  Is there any way to make this go faster?
