Quick question: My projects are all compilations of various videos from many sources within our organization. Very very rarely do I ever use native audio from the clips. By rarely I mean it's been several years. There's music and voice-over.
The problem is: my projects will have hours of source material (the one I've got now has 6 hours of HD source files), which load and I can use just fine in my timeline, but the peak files being generated are huge, and time consuming. Since I'm not using the audio, is there a way to disable the peak file generation?
On the other hand - if I delete the media cache files, will premiere simply rebuild them again?
Thanks so much in advance,
(BTW - CS4)
No. With tape based material, you can try to capture video only and maybe that will bypass the peak file generation. Try it and you will know.
If the .pek and .cfa files go missing, Premiere will rebuild them.
Great - thank you guys for the info!
