Job Start AdobePremiere Pro Action

The Job Start Adobe Premiere Pro Action allows you to initiate a specific version of Premiere Pro by specifying the path to the .exe file (Windows) or .app file (macOS).

The purpose of this action is to launch Premiere Pro and wait until the invisible Helmut4 panel is accessible.

By default, the action will fail if the hidden panel cannot be accessed within 55 seconds (as a synchronous stream will time out after 60 seconds).

If dealing with a slow client computer, consider using two instances of this action consecutively in an asynchronous stream tree.

If the hidden panel is unreachable (due to being missing or broken) or if the action times out, an error will be reported to the job dashboard and as a node result. You can access the node result using wildcards like {stream.last_result} or {node.result.?}.

This action is useful for the following tasks:

  • Ensuring that Premiere Pro has launched before initiating a 'Job Render AAF in Premiere Action'.

  • Opening the correct version of Premiere Pro (especially when multiple versions are installed on a user's computer) and loading the project via ExtendScript in the designated version.
