Creating Proxies for Clips Given List of Clip Names
I’m doing assistant editing/prep work on an archival documentary, which is being edited in a premiere pro production. Currently all the archival media (hundreds of unique clips) live in its own projects organized by subject.
I was able to create a list of filenames that only consists of video files inside the working cut, kind of like an EDL (but trimmed down to only the clip names and all duplicate clip names are removed).
Now my question is: is there is any way using scripting or premiere/media encoder tools to create proxies within the project using a certain preset for clips from this list? For example, I give the list as data and premiere can create and attach prores proxies within the archival media project automagically? That would be a great way to save time. I’m sure it would be pretty simple to do this for the transcoding, but I would also like to automate/optimize the process of attaching the proxies so I don’t have to go in and attach them one-by-one inside the premiere project. There are over 500 of them and I’d be worried about missing some.
ALSO, I understand that there are ways to avoid with ingest settings and the like, but this project has been in post-production since before the pandemic, switched from 2020->2021->2022->2023 and I’m only just now getting my hands on it, so I’m having to do a lot of band-aid fixes like this to prep it for a new editor who’s coming in.
Any suggestions appreciated! Let me know if I can clarify anything!
