Adobe Media Encoder – File Ingest Slowness Workaround

I’ve experienced a big problem importing pictures into my Adobe Premiere Pro v13.1.x projects. It can take 11 to 15 seconds per JPG picture file to import / ingest each JPG file into the media folder storage location.

In my YouTube video I demonstrate the problem and a somewhat crude workaround to the issue. The workaround reduces the 11 to 15 seconds per JPG file to less than 1 second per JPG file.
