How To Edit 4K Smoothly On ANY Computer in Premiere Pro 2017! (Proxy Workflow)

This proxy workflow will allow you to edit 4K media on slow computers in Premiere Pro 2017. While the feature isn’t entirely brand new (2015.3), it definitely makes the older methods obsolete and unnecessary. Long gone are the days of being limited by your computer specs.

In the past I’d have to first make proxies and bring them into a 4K timeline, which is already time consuming. Additionally, these proxies were HD so they didn’t match the 4K sequence so I’d have to scale them up which made things a bit annoying when relinking to the original 4K media.

I’m looking to post on my channel even more and in order to do that, I’ve decided to start doing tutorials and a vlog series that’s coming soon. With that being said, please comment down below, I truly take into consideration all of your suggestions and tips!
