Just wondering if anyone is using Premiere to edit proxies from a remote location… while the full res files are on a server in a remote location?
If so, can you explain what equipment you’re using, how functional is it uploading/downloading?
Would setting up a edit computer at the location and editing on it remotely using VPN… would that be practical at all?
If anyone has experience working like this, please let me know, thanks!

I do it all the time. Normally I send proxies via dropbox to another editor along with audio files and have him do an assembly and then he sends it back to me and I do the online. I don’t really need Team Project for that.

So, you have access to the full-res and the proxy video files?
We’re wondering about if the full-res files were on a remote server if it’s at all possible to be able to tell an edit system in that location to switch out the proxy files and assemble the exported file (without an editor being at that location). The more I think about it, the crazier it sounds.

Last year I edited a whole feature film off of a 4TB SSD card using only proxies. The original footage was kept on over 30TB of external storage. I only touched the original footage at the end, when we were preparing for color. So yes, you can swap out the proxies for the original, it happens all the time. In fact, if you don’t have the originals in place, you will get an error message when you try to export telling you that the sequence contains offline material (which includes proxies). Just do a test first, keep your full-res material on one hard drive, and your proxies and project on another, than turn off the hard drive with the full-res. You will figure it out, and then you can create the same scenario putting the full-res on a server online someplace.
