There were a few times, I showed in the tutorial Red Giant Installs Itself on Your Hard Drive, how to recover some megabytes on your SSD. I grant you, even on an SSD, it may still not be the most important objective. But today I am speaking to computer users with an Nvidia © graphics card to tell you that I have recovered more than 5 gigabytes on my SSD ... Yes, you read that right: More than 5 Gigabytes! Want to know more?

I suggest we look only at the "Import" tab and limit ourselves to the media import from the workstation. This simple function alone merits a tutorial because it is so useful and certainly under-exploited. I mention this under-exploitation because several times I have seen users complain about not being able to perform certain operations while the software gives them every opportunity to do so.

In browsing the Studio forums, an issue comes up regularly: "I have no sound in Studio". It is true that it is a classic scenario using Studio. This problem usually happens after a severe Studio crash. But you should be aware that Studio is not the only link in the sound chain. So I suggest a more general method that is the subject of this tutorial.

Previous users of Studio did not think much of the audio plugin that came as a bonus with Studio 11. iZotope Music & Speech Cleaner, the bonus audio plugin that comes with Studio 17 Ultimate, in my opinion, deserves a little more attention. This software is not integrated as a plugin into Studio but is used as a standalone program only. It is fairly easy to implement and gives quite good results on the most common corrections. It can be used to record any audio coming into your sound card as a digital audio file. Once your audio has been recorded into a digital audio file, you can use your recordings in other applications.

After reading some comments here or on the forum of new Studio versions, it appears that the notion of library within Pinnacle Studio 16 or AVID Studio versions is handled with difficulties by some, especially in the early days of using the software.

The auxiliary files, sometimes called temporary, sometimes secondary files,  and now render files in new Studio versions are created by Studio, in different circumstances, when editing or exporting a project. These files are saved in a specific folder. The auxiliary files can grow quite large and cause various disturbances in exporting your projects. These auxiliary files can be deleted at any time during your editing for Studio will recreate them automatically when you work on the project.
