I am in a bad situation. I created some movies of personal memories with premierePro and the medium they were on died. All i have left is the cache/preview (is there a difference between them?)files. Is there any way that i can use them to retrieve the videos..or is there even a player for them???
The preview files can be imported into a new premiere project, but they are video only. And, of course, they are only what needed to be rendered and include the effects you were using at the time. It seems like there ought to be a way to use the files that Premiere generates for audio, but I don't see it; are they even any kind of audio?
If you can spin up your dead HDD, maybe a recovery program, like Stellar-Phoenix, can recover your data. I've used it a few times, and it has been a real life-saver (or file-saver, as the case may be).
