Is there a way to set up an effect preset (or chain of effects presests) in Premiere Pro & then apply that to an external folder of clips and then batch output them as individual files?

There are some things you can do via the Watch folders for AME ... anything you can put in an export preset, such as Looks/LUTS, video overlays, audio limiting & minor controls, that sort of thing ... using the Effects tab in the Export Preset dialog.

If that would cover your needs, create the encoding preset with the things checked you need, then create a watch-folder with that encoding/export preset as the action.

There's only a few things you can do, but ... it might cover your needs.

Hello!

I don't believe there is a way to affect an external folder with presets from Premiere Pro. You would need to do this all within Premiere Pro itself and then export out.

Is it possible to batch export out as separate clips?

Sure. In your project panel select all the clips and sequences you want to export then do Command+M to Export Media (or right click and choose from menu). You'll get an export menu setting that you will need to choose what export settings you want. After that click the "Queue" button and it sends everything to Adobe Media Encoder. Media Encoder will open up with all your clips ready to export. Click the green triangle to start exporting all your queued up files.

Thanks very much! I had to brush up on creating effects presets with multiple effects & then apply to all clips in the bin by selecting all then dragging and dropping the preset onto the bin, but from there exactly as you described.

Cheers.

Hey Neil,

What if you need another effect to be applied to all of your clips (each with its own in/out points), such as denoising, before any color correction?

See also: How to export multiple clips quickly?

Thanks,

Elio

Depending on tons of things ... right?

For some heavy things like video noise removal you either want to do it first and render to an intermediate codec to actually use in your sequence or apply it last just before exporting.

I've learned from others to at times do a rough cut sequence with everything I might use from each clip, apply denoise effects and queue that to Media Encoder to run when I'm not at the computer. While I'm in an appointment or overnight, something like that.

Import that back into the project then go back to basic editing, trimming, color & audio.

The same with clips that will get Warp Stabilizer. As nearly every clip I touch will get color work (it's the most fun part, right?) any other intensive effect may result in intermediate processing for me. Some clips or sequences rendering overnight can make the rest of editing and exporting a whole lot sweeter.

I know color is typically done last, but with my projects that involve typically two cameras and maybe 30 minutes of video from each camera in straight clips that I'll chop and blend, sometimes I grade one camera's file, match the other to it, then run the export to DI codec.

Finish editing the project from the already color corrected intermediate files.

I also use the PrPro proxy process for a lot of projects. So even with some stuff applied playback is ok.
