What does PlumePack do?

PlumePack is a Premiere Pro panel intended for helping you consolidate your project, keeping all your media and dependencies into the same folder. It can also transform your projects to be lighter: taking less space on disk and removing useless stuff not used in your project.
The product comes with 2 different versions: Free and Premium.
PlumePack Free is an improvement of the Premiere Pro "Project Manager" Collect & Copy feature.
PlumePack Premium can also Lossless Trim your media files without re-encoding!
Trimming removes the extra frames in each footage (more or less depending of the handle option), based on their use in your current project. The shorten media will keep their own codec and quality: you keep the exact pixels values from your original media.
You can find the list of the supported codecs for this Trimming feature below.
All PlumePack options are explained in this dedicated article

Why should I use PlumePack?

PlumePack Premium is suited for RAW Footage use!

Keeping the codecs of your media can be really useful for RAW kind of footages! They are associated with parameters called Source Settings to decode the image in a different way, which gives to the colorist a powerful tool with more potential than re-encoding this file with another Codec.
So if you are working with R3D, BRAW or ProRes RAW footages in your project, you will be able to have project much liter in terms of disk usage, without losing their Source Settings power!

Get rid over the current native Project Manager bugs!

Some of you are already using the Project Manager and already know all its problems:
  • Nested sequence are not taken into account if you want to consolidate from a main sequence
  • After Effects Dynamic Linked Compositions are not copied with their dependencies
  • Final Folder Project organization is a mess: everything is put into the same folder
  • Collect & Copy: RAW footages like R3D or BRAW footages are not copies with their sidecar file.
  • A lot of projects are failing for different reasons ...

Fast Transfer projects for team work

Transferring huge projects with every media is tricky and can take a lot of time. PlumePack reduces your Project size and makes those transfers way quicker!

Lighter Backups

Archive the project without useless stuff and lighter media!

Clean your project

You can use PlumePack whenever to :
  • Remove unused project items, isolate one sequence, reduce disk space used.
  • Gather everything used in your project at the same location on your computer.
