I'm running into a brand new problem today. When I'm importing clips into my Premiere project bin, Media Encoder will suddenly launch and begin queuing this clip to copy it. This has never happened before. In fact, it copied SEVERAL clips in the background until I closed another window and noticed this.
Have I accidentally made a setting adjustment?
I am an Adobe CC subscriber to the full suite and All of my apps are up to date. My editing system OS is Win7 64bit.
Anyone have any suggestions, theories, or answers?
Thanks in advance.

How are you importing?
You can try resetting the preferences:
If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:
Reset a workspace
Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.
- Do one of the following:
- Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
- Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.
I am importing two ways. I right-click on the bin and select "import" and browse to the file I want to import, or I have a Windows Explorer open and drag the file into the bin or timeline.
Either approach results in the same action.
I took your advice and reset the preferences. That did not work. So I reset the workspace. That did not work either.
Still, whenever I import a video into the bin, Encoder activates and copies the file into the project folder on the hard drive.
I took the initiative to explore my Project Settings and saw the following on my Ingest settings, this is a panel I had never looked at before. I see that Ingest is ticked with Copy selected. I unchecked this box and the problem went away. Is there any way this could feature could have been mistakenly activated by me from within the project unknowingly?
For clarification, unchecking the box in the ingest settings fixed my issue.
Spot on. That worked for me. Was driving me nuts as to why my projects suddenly started duplicating clips.
