New to Premiere. I Created proxies using a custom preset. i included a watermark to easily identify the proxy files when viewed.
I see the watermark in the monitor panel, but it remains there when i press the toggle proxies button. the button toggles white to blue and back, but the media always contain the watermark. I don't understand the function of the button.
Are your original media files still available? If they're not, Premiere defaults to using the proxy media. It's a way to make a project more portable - offload the high-res files to other storage while you're editing, and reconnect them when you need them for color grading, effects, etc.
