Working with Adobe Premiere Pro

Step-by-step guide to using Zoom 7.0 with Adobe Premiere



Launch the Zoom Panel

Since Adobe Premiere Pro, unlike other Adobe apps, does not allow third-party plugins to be opened without a project, click on any recent project or create a default project in Premiere. 

Open the Zoom panel using Windows > Extensions > Evolphin Zoom option in Premiere.

Install Adobe Extension

If you do not see an Evolphin Zoom panel under Window > Extensions > Evolphin Zoom, install the plugin manually using Installing Creative App Plugin.

Starting a New Project

Please review the article here on a new project workflow in Premiere. Once a project is opened and appropriate subfolders for collaboration checked out, you are ready to start editing.

Browse for Footage or Graphics

Click on BROWSE tab then ALL to browse through the Zoom repository similar to how you would browse a file system.


Switch to various views using the button 

Search for Footage or Graphics


Depending upon the defaults set up by your administrators, Search via configured Filters such as File Type, Brand etc may show up in the default search view. 

Search via Filters

Click on Search tab on the panel, find footage to edit using the drop down filters or by typing in part of a file or folder name and then applying a filter. The filters are customizable by your administrators.

Search via Filename

Type part of the file or folder name in the search box to start the search


The footages that are linkable will show up without a cloud icon  in the search results. These can be drag-n-dropped into Premiere bin or the sequence timeline for editing. If the cloud icon does appear, the element needs to be first checked-out in your working copy using the checkout/download cloud button: 

Switching Proxies

Use the Linked Files tab to browse assets that have been linked to the project. 

If mid-res or low-res proxies have been generated by the transcoding layer, you can switch between proxies.

If a specific proxy doesn’t exist, switching from the links panel will not have any effect. The project will continue to stay linked to the initial resolution.


Switching specific links

Use the Resolution button to change:


To switch a specific link to a low-res proxy make sure you checkout/download the low-res proxy first by clicking on the cloud button on the toolbar.



Switching all links

From the right fly-out menu control -> Select All

Then choose the resolution from the buttons below. Please note the specific resolution must be available in order to switch the resolution of selected files. If that resolution is not available, the link for that file will stay the same resolution.

Confirm the resolution of each individual file by switching to list view and checking the resolution column:


Links in Premiere Pro

In Premiere Pro, assets can be placed into the project. The assets that are added to compositions are checked into Zoom as linked assets. A parent-child relationship can be viewed in the Asset Browser Links Panel.

While checking in an asset, check on the Check-in linked assets checkbox (if not selected by default) to check in the linked files along with the PPRO project.



The links will get checked in along with the Premiere Pro project. The links will appear in the Links panel in the Asset Browser.
