> After saving a considerable amount of different versions of the same clip,
What does this mean? how are you saving multiple versions?
Consider a single clip that may contain 45 minutes of video. I wanted to use numerous segments from within that large clip in my video. So, I imported the same clip into the project window of Premiere for each segment that I wan't to use. Each time I imported the file I would set a different in/out point on it and drag that to my Timeline. After about the 10th import, Windows informed me that I had exceeded the storage capacity of the hard drive that my scratch disk was on. I have done numerous videos with both static and video images in the past and have never run into this problem. That was the nature of my inquiry.
Import the clip one time.
Then load it into the source monitor, set in and out points; drag this to the timeline, repeat as many times a.s needed. No need to import the clip multiple times.
Alternately, Set the In and Out points and make subclips from it if you need to have multple copies in the project panel.
Thanks for your response.
