  • Proxies Not Batch Attaching

    Posted by Todd Drezner on October 5, 2023 at 2:33 pm

    I’m working in Premiere 23.6 with proxies that were created in-camera on the C500. All proxy files have the same name as the originals with the addition of a “P” in the name. They are in the same folder on the drive as the high resolution footage.

    I have not been able to get the proxies to batch attach. I’ve tried several things: unclicking and reclicking the “Relink others automatically” box, having only the “File Name” box checked in “Match File Properties,” restarting Premiere and setting to app default. None of these have worked.

    Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

    Have you also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Adobe Premiere Pro to see if you are able to make this work like before? Also if you were to record a video to showcase the issue you are having, I should be able to help assist you better on this issue too. 🙂 Its always good to post questions showing clips of the issue to analyze it better. Just a tip and hope it helps 🙂

    Have you used the proxies successfully before or is the first time you’ve tried to do this?

    Are they Canon .mxf files?

    I have that same issue with canon .mxf files from C70 and C300. Premiere doesn’t seem to know how to read that timecode properly causing it to get confused looking for clips. The only workaround I’ve found is to make new proxies through premiere, though that’s a pain when you already have proxies from the camera.

    OR You may also notice playback in your timeline with those files is also stuttery and slow, in which case you should transcode them all to ProRes and edit with those files instead. That’s the only solution we’ve come up with until Adobe fixes it’s canon mxf support. (They know about the issue now, but haven’t said when it will be fixed).
