As post-production workflows get further streamlined by advances in editing software, the demand for a more fluid process of finishing a video and uploading it to a platform is high. Vimeo has addressed this need with a new extension panel for Adobe Premiere Pro CC, allowing for a faster upload process and review pages for PRO and Business members.
Waiting for a sequence to encode, then uploading it to Vimeo and waiting for conversion is a pain, especially if you’ve got clients waiting to see previews of work or a deadline to meet. For Adobe users who enjoy the flexibility of Dynamic Link between apps, this new integration is a sigh of relief to further simplify the post production workflow.
For Vimeo free and Plus members, you get the functionality of uploading videos directly from within of Adobe Premiere Pro CC, with a choice of resolutions and codecs, and privacy options for the video to be made public immediately, or private for further reviewing.
PRO and Business members get an additional tool for reviewing videos within a video review page, which allows for timecode based comments from other users, similar to Wipster. This is very useful for the sometimes lengthy back and forth with clients wanting edits, so including this feature should speed up the reviewing and finishing time in post.
This is great news for Premiere Pro CC users who have missed out on Vimeo’s integration (and YouTube as well) that has been present in FCPX for a number of years. In the past, the desktop Vimeo app for Windows was not as useful as users wished it to be, and although there are export format choices built into Premiere Pro CC and Media Encoder CC, a direct link to Vimeo for Adobe apps never existed.
