How to Clear Media Cache Files in Premiere Pro

Media Cache Files in Premiere Pro can have a significant impact on performance during the editing.  Do you struggle with smooth playback in Premiere Pro from time to time? 

It’s easy to assume that a better computer would solve the problem. But this isn’t necessarily the truth. While obviously having a decent machine will do no harm, Cache Files management can be the real answer. Something that makes a significant difference. 

Let’s dive in.

Media Cache Files are temporary files Premiere Pro uses for better performance. Each time you import a new video or audio file into a project, media cache files are being created which is indicated by a progress bar in the bottom right corner. Sounds familiar, right?  

If they’re managed correctly, they can ensure proper performance during the editing process. On the other hand, sometimes these files get corrupted and in such a case they can cause a lot of problems. Should you delete them in this case? In the following video, we take a closer look at the topic.
