new proxy feature inside premiere.
When interpret footage from 30fps to 25fps the data isn't propagating through to the proxy, so
Proxy and full resolution footage do not match.
Very unhappy as this cost me a lot of time and my client was not too impressed. Lucky it was not a new client.
Not sure if there is an easy work around?
Proxy does not currently fully support Interpret Footage. There is a note of this towards the bottom of this help page: Adobe Premiere Pro Help | Ingest and Proxy Workflow in Premiere Pro CC 2015.3
Please feel free to submit a request for this support. Feature Request/Bug Report Form
I do not know if it will meet your needs, but you could try leaving your Full Res and Proxy clips at 30fps and placing your clips in a 25fps Sequence.
Yes. Interpret Footage is still not supported for Proxy with the latest Premiere Pro 11.1.1.
Is this still an issue / unsupported in August 2020?
Quick answer: yes. As in, yes meaning no, it's not supported yet.
Neither Interpreted time remapping nor allowance for audio channel changes/over-rides have made it into the proxy process yet. Both needed, really.
Has this issue been addressed? I'm running into the same problem 5 years later. Please tell me that Adobe has worked on this feature.
Best thing is not to use the "wrong tool". Modify/Interpret is what most people use for setting slo-mo settings, and yea it's got problems.
But as the YouTube vid I'll link here shows, the same number of clicks gets you perfect functionality using Speed/Duration. Which can be applied to groups of clips in a timeline or bin. And doesn't have any issues with time ramps, proxies, anything.
Still a problem for me. Putting mixed framerate in the timeline as suggested isn't a fix as it will not playback smooth. Hopefully a fix will come soon.
After struggling with this on several projects, I figured out a way I could get proxies and original footage to be synced after interpreting the footage. I haven't run extensive tests, so I can't pinpoint which steps are exactly necessary, but this is what I did.
After creating a new project and importing all the footage (without automatic ingestion for proxies), I manually created the proxies. After all the proxies were finished transcoding, I reinterpreted all the clips I wanted to- basically changed anything that had a higher framerate than my 23.976 fps timeline, because you can speed individual clips back up in the timeline later if slow motion isn't desired. This is all done before creating your first sequence. Then, when you drag all your clips into the sequence and toggle the proxies of reinterpreted clips, they should be synced up with the correct time of the original files. This works for me, at least.
Having only messed with this a bit, I feel like the key is to do all this before a single sequence exists. If I've done all these steps and create the sequence and then import new footage with new proxies and interpretation, those will not be synced. To clarify, the older clips will remain synced, but after creating a sequence, new proxies with time interpretation won't sync. I hope this helps someone, and I hope this "feature" will be added soon. I call it a"feature" and not a "bug" since they specifically state that time interpretation isn't supported with proxies.
My biggest issue right now with creating the proxies manually in AME is getting a whole folder to automatically relink to the proxies when I try to attach them. When I have thousands of clips, I cannot attach one clip at a time.
I've futzed with this a lot. In some cases, it seems that the extension has to be capitalized me. And the suffix "_Proxy" is case sensitive. But even then, it doesn't work 99% of the time.
Has anyone had any luck with this?
Creating proxies from Premiere as I described automatically links them back to the original footage. There shouldn't be any relinking.
I'm talking about making proxies manually, either with AME or another app.
Moving this to a new post.
