How it works

This extension turns your Reduct highlight reels into Premiere Pro sequences for polish and further editing. These sequences are created from your high quality source media files, including multi-camera source sequences.

NOTE: Please update to Premiere Pro 15.4.0 or higher before using the extension and write to if you experience any issues.

1 - Installing the extension

For macOS

For Mac systems, please download our DMG file and double click to open it. Then, instead of dragging the “Reduct Extension” over “Adobe Extensions”, double click on the Adobe extensions folder and manually drag the Reduct Extension into it.

To uninstall the plugin, visit the /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions/ folder in Finder and remove the folder called “Reduct.Video panel.”

For Windows

For Windows systems, please download our installer EXE file and double click it. If Windows warns you that it is from an unknown publisher, please click More info or Run anyway to proceed.  Note that the Adobe Premiere Pro extension itself is signed by Reduct, Inc. Click Next to proceed through the installation wizard, then restart Adobe Premiere Pro.

To uninstall the extension, visit the Add/Remove Software section of the Windows Control Panel and choose Uninstall Reduct.Video panel.

2 - Importing your highlight reels

Next, open up a Premiere Project, and load in your media. When you are trying to re-link reel source files to Premiere Source Media, Reduct will look through all of the media files and sequences located within the currently open project.

Within Premiere, select Window→Extensions→Reduct.

Option A

Publish your reel, and paste the share link from Reduct to import your reel.

Option B

Instead of pasting your reel link, you can log in to Reduct within the extension window to add the Reduct website as a resizable window within your Premiere workspace. Reduct’s Google and SAML login features are not yet supported in the Premiere extension. If you need these features in the Premiere panel, please let us know.

Once you have logged in, navigate to your reel and click 'Import'

And then...

Once you've pasted your reel share link or logged in and imported your reel, the following steps will be the same.

The Reduct extension will locate the high-quality source footage associated with your Reduct reel. Verify the source files are the correct ones, then click Import Reel With Media Links'. You may have to scroll down to see it.

NOTE: You have the option to change each file your Reduct reel will link to. Always link your reels to source files and never link reels to sequences. If you're creating a Multi-camera sequence, link to the Multi-camera source sequence.

Choose your sequence settings.

These files will import as a nest. For multicam: lasso all clips and select Multi-camera enable.

Please take a look at the following article for more information on working with multi-camera sequences in Reduct and Premiere.

Data storage

The Premiere extension does not download audio or video assets to your computer. It links to assets already in the Premiere project of your choosing.

It does download Reduct captions, and Reduct title slides, to your computer. It uses the ~/Reduct/Imported Captions folder to contain caption files as SRT. It also uses the ~/Reduct/Titles folder to store title slide information. Title slides will appear as comment markers on your timeline and spaces relevant to the timing of your slides set in Reduct.

If you want to link to the original footage you have stored in Reduct, open the panel at the very top of the recording (directly above the transcript), and download the media file from there. This will be the same file that was originally uploaded. Set this file up in Premiere, and then use the plugin to bring your reels into your timeline, correctly linked.
