Working with High Frame Rate Proxies in Adobe Premiere Pro

Working with proxy files in Adobe Premiere Pro is easy, but high frame rate footage requires a few extra steps. Here’s what you need to know.

With droves of mirrorless cameras like the GH5 and Fuji X-T3 hitting the market at affordable prices, filmmakers and videographers can shoot 4K at 60fps, and beyond. For these shooters, proxy workflows are a mainstay in post-production.

Adobe Premiere makes it easy to create, attach, and edit with proxy files. For example, when working with non-high-frame-rate footage, the proxy workflow is relatively straightforward:

  1. Import your footage into Premiere.

  2. Interpret your footage (or use Premiere’s proxy ingest settings).

However, when working with high-frame-rate footage you’ll need to follow some additional steps.

Use this as a guide for organizing, ingesting, and creating high-frame-rate proxies for editing in Premiere.
