Working with Adobe Premiere (Zoom 6.0 or below)

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



Launch the Zoom Panel

Since Adobe Premiere, 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.

Search for Footage or Graphics

Depending upon the defaults set up by your administrators, Search via Filters or Metadata 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 Metadata

Click on the  icon to switch to search everywhere mode. This allows you to do a global search that can match any metadata or file name automatically.


The footages that are linkable will show up with a link icon  in the search results. These can be drag-n-dropped into Premiere bin or the sequence timeline for editing. If the link icon does not appear the element needs to be checked-out in your working copy using the checkout button 

Switching Proxies

Use the Links 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 then switching from the links panel will not have any effect, the project will continue to stay linked to the initial resolution.


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

Switching specific links

Use the Resolution drop down to change:

Switching all links

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.

While checking in an asset, check on the Check-in linked assets checkbox 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.
