The new panel is available on the Adobe Exchange site. It lets Premiere Pro users interact with files in your Ci Workspaces, all from within Premiere Pro.

Camera to Post, Even Faster

With the new Ci panel, users can simply log in to Ci to access all the files in your Workspaces without ever leaving the Premiere environment. Whether you use Premiere Pro on a desktop or smaller screens like tablets, we’ve redesigned the interface to maximize your experience.

Finding the right files to import is a breeze with Ci’s powerful search capabilities – allowing you to find files across multiple Workspaces using filenames and metadata.

Direct Import to Premiere Pro Project Bins

And what good does access to cloud-stored files do without being able to import them into your favorite editing suite?

With the new Ci panel, you can seamlessly import files to Premiere project bins. Simply right-click on the file you want to import and select “Import to Premiere” from the drop-down menu. You can get files into your project bin in just two clicks!


Import Proxies to Start Editing Sooner

Why wait to download a massive video file when you can start editing even faster by importing a smaller file to your project bin? Ci automatically transcodes smaller preview proxies when files are uploaded so you can shave off that non-creative time spent transferring files. Simply right-click the file you want to edit and select “Elements” from the drop-down menu to see the proxies available for import.


Upload from Premiere Pro to Ci

Once edits are done, you can render completed sequences in the format you need – use a preset or custom encoding profile in Adobe Media Encoder. To upload sequences, bins or projects files, simply click “Add Item” in the Ci panel.
