So I'm a bit new to the Team Project workflow, but from what I've gathered it's pretty straight forward. The only thing that keeps tripping me up is, why is media being duplicated when importing into Premiere??
For reference, these are the steps I take:
1. Create Team Project (scratch disks and ingest settings file paths are set to the creative cloud folders)
2. Upload all media assets to the cloud
3. Organize them into subfolders
4. Import media into Team Project for editing
But after I import them into Premiere to start editing, it duplicates ALL of the media and eats up space on my local drive. Also, it just dumps it into the root folder and creates a big mess.
Is there a way to avoid the media being duplicated? If the files live on the cloud, why doesn't premiere recognize those and just link to them? Instead it creates duplicates?
Is there something I'm missing here??
Let's move this post to the Team Projects forum. Is that OK, Chris?
Thank you for moving it here. Can you advise on a solution?
It sounds like you manually moved the bins and clips into the 'Creative Cloud Files' folder and then imported them with the ingest Action 'Copy' enabled into your Team Project. So yes, in this case Premiere looks at the ingest settings and copies the media to the selected location. Clips should not get duplicated when you disable the Ingest Settings.
Yes I did have the ingest action "Copy" enabled, because we need the remote editors to be able to add clips to the shared project from their own local drives. What's the proper workflow for this to avoid duplicate media?
If you synch the media via a shared creative cloud folder and an editor wants to import media local to the editors machine. The editor should first copy the media into the shared 'Creative Cloud Files' folder and then import the media form there.
The media should now synch with all invited collaborators and be online after they get the latest Team Project changes.
I'm a bit confused because that's what I was trying to do in my original post. All of our media is stored on the cloud, but when we import it into the Team Project, it duplicates the media and copies to the local drive.
Is there a way to avoid it being copied to the local drive? Does Team Projects allow for the media to link to the cloud files, and not the local media?
Have you tried the steps from your original post, but with ingest setting disabled?
