Queuing Proxies onto Separate PC

Hi there,


I feel like this question is a bit unorthodox, so I'll try to explain what I'm after the best I can. In the same way that an Adobe Premiere project can be set up to automatically encode proxies using Media Encoder (on ingest, I mean), and similar to the way that you can have another PC encode proxies using a watch folder, I'm wondering if there is a way to have ONE pc's instance of Premiere Pro queue up the encoding on another machine - I have 10Gb links between these machines, so I am not concerned about network congestion - is there a way to have another computer (Computer B) automatically generate proxies for a project being worked on in Computer A? If this isn't possible, I suppose the next best thing would be to just use a watch folder - but that requires a bit of planning (and you cannot edit within premiere pro until this encode is complete, unlike with the proxies where you can edit while the encode happens in the background).


If I'm not being clear, please let me know.


TLDR: Computer A is editing, but generating proxies on ingest using Computer B's install of Media Encoder instead of using watch folders.

Export or render , Import , Watch folders
