Scratch disk selection
on Dec 14, 2010 at 10:44:09 am

Hi there,
I just finished encoding a 20 minute piece down to a WMV 9 file.
I only have 24gB left on my main disk and despite the fact that I have numerous mostly vacant HDs and 14Gb of RAM, during the process of encoding the entire 24Gb of free disk space left on my home disk was swallowed up to the point of throwing messages at me and showing me i had 100Mb of free space left!!

Is there some way of selecting another scratch disk to operate from. There seems to be nothing in the preference pane and a search in help yeilded no results.

Mac 10.5.8
Episode 5.3.2 (not pro)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please look at Preferences again. General, "Scratch location" defaults to "/tmp." Change to a drive with more free space.
