Premiere Pro CS6 provides tools for editors working in diverse fields. For example, there are editors that need to handle video files that continuously grow in duration. Growing files are generated at live events, sports, broadcast, and others. These video files are referred to as “growing files.” Premiere Pro CS6 supports growing files for those needing that workflow.
Supported codecs for growing files include:
- RDD9-compliant XDCAM HD 50/35/25/18
- QuickTime wrapped reference files in these formats are supported in Premiere Pro CS6 (6.0.2), and later
Support for growing files to automatically refresh, and how often they should refresh, is available in Media Preferences. The updated duration can be viewed in the Source Monitor. See Media Preferences for details.
Ingesting or capturing media for growing files can only take place if Premiere Pro can read the volume (Premiere Pro can read footage from a unc path (“//somewhere/something”), but the drive must be mapped (“H:\somewhere\something”). The file can then be imported using the File > Import command. You can then edit with these clips as you normally would any other clip.
Note: growing files cannot be ingested through the Media Browser.
For growing files support for all current formats, update to Premiere Pro CS6 (6.0.2).
