How to make the program opens the file from a network (readonly) drive, and index files are stored in the local temp folder?

Most likely not! Copy video from network drive to local drive. Process local. All data has to come over anyway.

Program can keep the index files in the temporary folder, different from the folder with the original file?

no: index files are required in the same folder as the video sits.
It's not recommended to process videos over network

Avidemux is a simple tool for simple video processing tasks. The keyword here is simple: it does not offer tools like a timeline, multitrack editing, you cannot freely move or splice audio and video clips from various sources. However, Avidemux allows you to do elementary things in a very straightforward way.

- Network video editing is not considered a simple video processing task. In my opinion.
- You can make a request to the leading developer. Keep in mind: developing has a huge time deficit.

Thanks for answers.
The problem is this: video is written to a network drive and cut off every hour. from these files need to cut any part. The task is very simple and avidemux fits very well with the exception of the problem described above.
