What does Trimming mean ?

Trimming is like copying a part of your footage. It will remove the images before an InPoint and after an OutPoint set for the footage, while keeping all the file metadata and Source Settings.

PlumePack: a powerful tool in your workflow !

PlumePack does more than just trimming your files, it works like a Project Manager.
It can be used in different kind of situations :

Start editing with a lighter project

After importing your files inside Premiere Pro, and before starting to edit your project, add your files to a timeline and then crop your files to select only the parts you want to use.
Then run PlumePack and your Project Items will be automatically replaced with the trimmed files.
That's really handy especially if you are working on SSD where space can be short.

Transfer lighter projects between team members

PlumePack can save you a LOT of space used by your project, without altering quality (which will stay exactly the same) and by keeping your codecs. You can also only trim a part of your project easily. So it is perfectly suited for speed up your project transfer.

Save Lighter Backups

When it's time to backup your project, use PlumePack to be sure to collect everything needed in your project, and get the lighter project as possible while keeping footage codecs and quality.
