    Premiere Pro Panel SDK: Function to exchange assets (Offline/Online)

    mirkomaniac

      Hello,

       

      I'm trying to find out if the Premiere API is capable of exchanging project/sequence assets for an offline/online workflow.

       

      Consider we have an asset management system available which manages all derivates (source, mezzanine and proxy) of a video asset (file name, path and additional metadata). Consider that the file name of an asset will be the same for all derivates.

       

      As an editor I'll import video assets in a single derivate (e.g. mezzanine or proxy) into my Premiere project and sequence.

      As a last step I like to online the source derivate to export my sequence timeline with the highest available video source quality.

       

      Can I create a panel process to exchange the derivate type of all assets used in my Premiere project?

      Can I create a panel process to exchange the derivate type of assets used in my current Premiere sequence?

       

      E.g.

      -> get a list of all clips in project/sequence with file paths

      -> verify if clip is a managed asset and if so, which type of derivate

      -> if higher quality is available: exchange clip derivate (replace file/filepath or delete&add/relink file)

       

      Thanks,

      Mirko
