In the 11.1 release of Adobe Premiere Pro CC, the product team uncovered a bug in the Media Cache folder management feature, designed to clear the Media Cache folder automatically. In response, the 11.1.1 bug-fix update for Premiere Pro was released on May 17th and is available for download by all customers. This update addresses the issue and changes the behavior of media cache deletion and is recommended to all users.
Here’s a statement that Patrick Palmer, the product manager for Premiere Pro, posted on the Adobe forums. Thought it should be shared here as well.
We wanted to update you on the current status of the Media Cache workflow.
We have an update to Premiere Pro CC 2017.1 (11.1.x) in the pipeline that will be released very shortly. It will include additional measures to safeguard the Media Cache workflow beyond what’s already released with 11.1.1. It’s an update highly recommended by the Premiere Pro team.
The most important change is that only media cache files of a known file type (such as *.pek, *.ims and *.cfa) will be deleted according to the cache management preference. The folders they are in will remain on the system. Additionally, the Media Cache management will be off by default – a lot of users have requested to switch to an opt-in model, and that’s what it’s going to be moving forward.
This next update will also include a number of performance improvements and bug fixes in other areas, and it will include support for the 10 bit formats of the Panasonic GH-5.
