Use Previews in Export Media doesn’t do anything?
my idea was to create total ProRes workflow in Premiere CS6. All my material is ProRes, my sequence+previews are ProRes and I export as ProRes. What I understand reading from manuals is that if I check Use Previews in Export Media Settings it’d use rendered previews instead of rendering from scratch when creating final output file. So in my case it’d use rendered ProRes previews and encode it once more to final output ProRes file.
I have lot of dynamic links in my sequence which takes quite long time to render. So I had already rendered those parts of my sequence as ProRes previews and thought it wouldn’t take that long to export my final output ProRes when I had Use Previews checked. But what I found out there wasn’t noticeable difference between when I had Use Previews checked and when I hadn’t.
I also read some other people have similar experiences that Use Previews doesn’t do anything. This makes Premiere Pro quite unusable if you have some render intensive parts in your sequence (such as noise reduction, dynamic links) and you have to always render everything from scratch when you export.
So am I missing something or is it that Use Previews just doesn’t work?
