Is there a temporary file type that is created by Premiere Pro CS5 when a video is captured from a camcorder? I created a new project and captured the video, but apparently (and accidentially) closed CS5 without saving the video file. When I re-opened the project, the video file was not there. Unfortunately I do not have the original tape. I was hoping that my file recovery software might be able to recover the file if I could identify it by file type. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
The media will still be on your hard drive, you just need to find it. Check your current Scratch disk settings for Video. Chances are the actual files are there, and you can just reimport them into the project.
Found it! Thanks.
