Create Proxy media with Premiere Pro CC

Benefits of Proxy media for 4K editing in Premiere Pro CC

The process of creating Proxy files is making a copies of the 4k video files at a lower resolution. You then load these lower resolution files in to your Premiere Pro CC and editing using these. Before you export your finished edited video you replace the low-resolution, proxy, files with the full resolution 4K ones. Then all that is left is a final colour edit and to export the final 4K file. With this technique you can edit and export a 4K video even if you don’t have a computer or monitor that is suitable for editing 4K video.

How to create Proxy files with Premiere Pro CC?

You can create proxies directly from items in the project panel. Choose Create Proxis from the project panel context menu to open the Create Proxies dialog. The menu item is enabled when one or more items in the panel are selected that can be proxied. Premiere Pro can create proxies for master clip project items if they have video, have no captions, and are not growing files. The media must also be online.

Create Proxy dialog

In the Create Proxies dialog you can choose one of several built-in presets to use when transcoding high-resolution originals to create proxies. You can also add presets created in Adobe Media Encoder by clicking the Add Ingest Preset button. You can also choose to create proxies in a “Proxies” directory next to the original media, or in a custom location.

Proxy media creation process

If you allow the progress dialog box to complete, a proxy job is created in Adobe Media Encoder for each of the project items chosen that can be proxied, and an offline proxy is attached to each project item. You can monitor the progress of these jobs in the Premiere Pro Progress panel, or in Adobe Media Encoder.

While the jobs are processed, you can continue to work with the corresponding high-resolution project items in Premiere Pro. When the proxy jobs complete, Premiere Pro automatically switches to displaying the proxy video in the Timeline if Enable Proxies is enabled in the Media preferences panel.

Premiere Pro does not need to remain open while proxy jobs are processed in Adobe Media Encoder. If you quit Premiere Pro before all jobs are complete, any proxies created while Premiere Pro is not running are attached when Premiere Pro is launched and the document is reopened.
