Creative Collaboration using Adobe Creative Suite

    Summary: Using our Adobe plugin, video and art creators can upload a new asset or version without logging into Ziflow. Content creators can push assets to Ziflow using the plugin below without opening another tool or browser.

    Ziflow plugins let you create new proofs and versions using the following Adobe products:

    Available for: every Ziflow user on all editions

    How does it work?

    First, download and install the plugin into your Creative Cloud App. Find our plugin on the Adobe Exchange website or directly in Creative Cloud.

    Once the plugin has been installed, you may start submitting proofs directly from Adobe apps as outlined below:

     

    Premiere Pro CC

    Once you are finished creating a project in Premiere Pro CC, click on a Window tab, select Extensions, and then choose Ziflow from the list. This will open a window that will redirect you to Ziflow. Please authenticate using your Ziflow credentials within your default browser.

    After you've authenticated, click on a Create proof button. This will pop up a window where some basic details (proof folder location in Ziflow, proof name, video quality and render location ) need to be filled in. Once the video is encoded and rendered the asset will be pushed to Ziflow.
