Unable to batch attach proxies in Premiere 22.2 - have to go one by one

Hi All--

 

I'm importing 4K Sony A7SIII footage into Premiere 22.2 (and previous 22 versions). I'm able to import the 4K files, but then when I attach proxies I've made in Media Encoder (as I've done for a year now in Premiere/Encoder 2021), the proxies only attach one by one. I have to go file by file to attach proxies, which is just not an option with the number of files I'm working with.

 

Does anyone else have a similar issue and/or a workaround for attaching proxies quickly to 4K files?

I believe I've figured out the issue with auto-linking the proxies, which is that the in the latest version of Premiere (22.2) the 'Match File Properties' for linking seemed to be causing the trip up. The default is for all the properties for linking to be checked (at least that was my experience). I believe the issue is that the 'file extension' box was checked, and the proxy files I'm working with are not the same file extension as my original 4K files. I unchecked several of the boxes (see image below), leaving file name. The proxies have been automatically attaching consistently in my tests. I hope this helps others who update Premiere and who may have a similar issue.
