Hello,

i am currently developing my own Premiere Pro Plugin based on the PProPanel example.

Currently i have to lern a lot and try to understand those things step by step. My question ist, if there is a quicker way to update the Panel/Plugin instead of completely restarting Premiere Pro?

 

greetings

Panels and plug-ins are two very different things.  For plug-ins, Neil is right; there's no way to make PPro re-scan them during a given session. For panels... Notice that the PProPanel example has a 'refresh panel' button? If you've made any changes to the panel's JavaScript or ExtendScript code, refreshing the panel will load your changed code, for execution.

Unfortunately, no. Premiere only 'reads' available presets, LUTs and plugins on startup. Many of us have asked for a "refresh" option but they haven't made one.
