Improve media storage stability in Rush for iOS
On an iPhone 12 with 60gb of free space, Premiere Rush often loses media and has to re-download it from Creative Cloud. It does this automatically, but it shouldn’t have lost/offloaded the media in the first place when there is plenty of device storage available. This only seems to happen with projects that are syncing with Creative Cloud. It is particularly frustrating when working with projects when not connected to wifi. Eg a project can be fully downloaded, then when out on the train with no wifi you can be working on it perfectly fine. You might switch out to check emails and then when you come back, the project is missing some or all of the media files and needs to redownload them. The only way to continue working is to allow cellular data for syncing which defeats the whole purpose of pre-downloading it on wifi. The workaround I’ve been using is to pre-download on wifi, then delete it from Creative Cloud and set it to this device only. That way it doesn’t offload the media files. Then when I am finished the project and back on wifi, I tell it to sync with Creative Cloud again. It’s very tedious and slow, especially given that Creative Cloud sync with iOS is also much slower than it is with macOS. It’s also very frustrating when I forgot to delete it from Creative Cloud before I leave wifi and the first time I go to do anything on the project it is missing media files and needs to redownload them. I lose a lot of editing time to this issue and I feel there is a lot of wasted bandwidth. I once used over 30gb of cellular data in 3 days when I had that option turned on and discovered that Rush was constantly re-downloading media files from Creative Cloud that I had already pre-downloaded on wifi.
