How to link 4k files to proxies in premiere cs6?
on Jan 22, 2015 at 5:44:12 pm

After my first 4k shoot with GH4, I began with my typical 1920x1080 premiere pro workflow but found that my computer was lagging and kept stalling. I figured this was due to the large resolution of the 4k MP4 files, so I created 1280x720 mov proxies and then proceeded to cut my edit on a 1080 timeline using those proxies.

I now want to replace the proxies with the 4k files so I can grade them, but when I do the typical offline then relink route, I'm told that the files don't match and it seems to automatically just link the proxies instead again.

As an alternative, I try to replace each proxy clip individually with the corresponding 4k clip, but when I do, it doesn't recognize the position of the cut--rather it just replaces the footage at the beginning of the clip. This is obviously useless.

My proxies are mov files while my 4k files are MP4.

What do I do? I've been at this for hours and Im really stuck. Help! :(

This is how offline editing is done.

Have not you tried it for a small project with a few clips if it will work?

Thx Ann. I will test that workflow with my next project. But at this point I need to solve the problem I'm having. Any solutions?

The only option I can think of is import the 4K clips and manually Replace With Clip for each clip.

I tried that but it doesn't recognize the cut point of the proxy clip, so when I replace it, it just starts the clip from the beginning.
