Video Inserts to XDCAM files on Premiere Pro CC 2018.5 (Oct 8th Release)cineXtools and cineXplugins are updating their libraries to accommodate changes made to the way Premiere encodes/exports XDCAM files in Premiere Pro CC 2018.5.
If you have already upgraded Premiere and can’t roll back to Pro CC 2017, then there is a workaround. Please contact us at email@example.com so we can walk you through the workaround.
A new build that accommodates the changes for XDCAM in Pro CC 2018.5 is expected to release on 11/19/2018.

A QuickStart guide for the plugins will be forthcoming shortly.
In the meantime, please follow these simple instructions to start using cineXplugins:
- For the Media Composer plugin, create a ‘dummy’ project that matches your insert target’s colorspace, framerate and timecode. **The original project and related bins aren’t necessary to use cineXplugins.
- For a video insert, create a second video layer. This layer will be the source for insert. **Just like cineXtools, the insert source can be anything (DPX sequence, DNxHD/HR OpAtom, etc…) as long as the colorspace and framerate match the target, even if the target’s codec is something like XDCAM, ProRes or XAVC.
- Select in and out points for your source material.
- cineXplugins inserts the source on the monitored video layer. If your insert source is on V2, make sure you have your V2 layer selected.
- Go to File>Export>AMA Export
- In the AMA Export tool, select “Cinedeck Insert” as the export profile.
- Make sure the following boxes are checked/unchecked:
- Then select “OK”, which will then open a window for you to select the target file to insert to.
- Once you’ve selected the target file, the insert edit will be triggered and you’ll see a progress bar showing you that the insert is happening.
- You can monitor your inserts with VLC (or any other player) while it’s overwriting the new frames in your flat file.
- You can insert Audio and Captions along with your video or separately. However, the tracks, whether empty or not, have to be present in the target file. Make sure to select the appropriate tracks for the input source when doing Audio or Captions inserts.
- If your source timecode doesn’t match the target’s timecode, you can always type it in. Under “In point type”, select “Custom Timecode” instead of “Match Timecode” and type in the timecode where you’d like the source to be inserted in your target file. You will still need to select in and out points in your timeline.
