Creating proxies is a great way to allow any computer to edit 4k footage. With a proxy, instead of using the really large original footage to edit with, we use a substitute low-res version. This low-res version allows our computer to edit at normal speeds. Then, when it’s time to render out the final product, Premiere Pro automatically switches the footage back to high-res for the render. I have already gone over how to create a proxies when importing footage, so today I am going to go over how to create proxies on already imported footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

How to Create Proxies on Imported Footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CC

  1. Go to your project tab in Premiere Pro.
  2. Highlight all of the footage you want to turn in to proxies.
  3. Right click, then go to Proxy->Create Proxies…
  4. In the dialogue that opens up, choose h.264 for for your Format. Then choose a Preset for the size. I typically go with 720p or 1280×720.
  5. We can also choose a destination. If we have a specific place to store proxies, here is where we can choose that.
  6. Click OK, media encoder will pop up, and then create the proxies for you.

Now you have proxies of your high-res footage, and are ready to do some quick editing. You don’t have to do anything else. Once you are done, just start a render like normal and Premiere Pro will swap in the high-res footage.
