Hello, Creative Cow personnel.
I am Brazilian and I work with editing, and I'm with these doubts and I want you to help me solve.
I need to know a way to Premiere Pro CC not generate peak files when importing videos to the software as they take up much space when working with large projects that are heavy'm using also the final cut 7.3, but want to migrate to use only Premiere Pro CC. What should I do?
Is there a way or not to prevent them from being generated?
PPro is going to generate those PEK files. There is no way to stop it from doing so that I am aware of.
When it is time to archive your project, you can delete them. If you open the project again it will re-generate them as needed.
If the issue is they are devouring space on your system drive, change the location where Cache files are saved in the preferences menu. But the reality is you'll still need to do some periodic housecleaning on the system to deal with them.
