canon XF300, Premiere CS5 use a huge memory with mxf files !


I have created a new project for the Canon XF300 (1080 50i).

When importing around 200 medias clips (native mxf files from the canon)  on the project, Premiere takes 8 Go of RAM ! it’s like all the media are loaded in memory.

My system has only 8Go so the system disk starts to swap a lot and is not usable.


Does someone can do a test to confirm ?

i need to import more than 1000 media clips for a docmentary, so will it take 32 Go of RAM ?


i hope there is something special like a “magic option” that i need to check or enable/disable.


thanks a lot for your feedback.
