Proper workflow when using large files?

I have dropbox linked. I have a number of 1-2gig video files I need to edit. What is the best way to access these files? I tried opening one directly but the app went to not responding for a 10 minutes or so (I assumed it was loading the file.) I tried to copy a file to the temporary storage but the file browser froze when I right clicked the file. I looked at the network performance during these operations but there was no significant traffic. So either the dropbox connection is not using the nic or it wasn't really doing anything.

  • Even after restarting the session and just launching the file explorer, when I simply click on a 1.8g file in dropbox the file explorer freezes. I realize these are large files but there must be a way to work with these files without spending dozens of credits just accessing the files.
