I am using Premiere Pro CS4 with latest updates.
For the first time with CS4 I am using the Program Manager to archive my project.
When creating a new trimmed project it copies the full clip for every used clip-part in the project instead of a trimmed clip.
When several parts of a long clip are used in the project it results in a archived project that uses more storage capacity than the original project.
Has anyone experienced the same issue?
What's the format of your footage? Trimming doesn't work with formats like P2, XDCAM, and I think HDV. It'll only work with codecs that can be stored in an AVI or MOV container.
The clips are in .mpeg (HDV) and captured with PPro.
It think you're right that it has something to do with the format.
I've done a test after converting the .mpeg files to .avi with Cineform Intermediate plug-in and now PPro doesn't trim or copy any clip file.
This sounds as PPro doesn't recognise some formats.
Still strange I cannot find anything on suported formats in help or internet on this topic.
