Introduction

In this guide, I will show you a quick and straightforward method to export your entire Adobe Premiere Pro project along with all the associated media files, AutoCut Captions, AutoZoom, etc. This technique is essential when you need to transfer your project to another editor or deliver it to a client while ensuring no files and AutoCut edit are missing.

How to Export Your Project

  1. Review the disk space required for the export and ensure you have enough space at the chosen destination.

  2. You have the option to Exclude Unused Clips, which will reduce the size of the copied project by omitting any clips that are not used in the current sequence(s).

  3. Decide whether to include other files such as Audio Conform Files and Preview Files. It's usually safe to exclude preview files unless needed for specific purposes.

  4. If you have customized clip names in the project, you can check Rename Media Files to Match Clip Names, but if not, you can leave this unchecked.

  5. Once satisfied with the configurations, click OK to proceed.
