How to use Proxy Files to Edit SUPER FAST in Premiere Pro!

❗ Download my FREE Proxy Preset: https://go.whoismatt.com/proxypreset/
Is your computer too slow to edit 4K video? Or do you have a fast computer that still lags when you are editing 4K, 6K, or even 8K footage? This video will show you how to create proxy files to MASSIVELY speed up your video editing speed, regardless of the specs of your computer.

This is my entire workflow for creating video proxies, including my exact preset settings for both Mac and PC. You can also download my proxy preset (linked above) to save you the time of creating your own.

Lastly, I cover how to create proxies even if you interpret your footage! If you’ve tried doing this before, you’ve probably noticed that the frame rates of your proxy files don’t match up with your native video files. My workaround fixes this issue. 🙂

😃 I recommend watching my “Frame Rates Explained Video”, which will go in detail about how I shoot and edit video that is multiple frame rates: https://youtu.be/gf1od2xCaFY
