How does it work?

First, download and install the plugin into your Creative Cloud App. Find our plugin on the Adobe Exchange website or directly in Creative Cloud.

Once the plugin has been installed, you may start submitting proofs directly from Adobe apps as outlined below:


Premiere Pro CC

Once you are finished creating a project in Premiere Pro CC, click on a Window tab, select Extensions, and then choose Ziflow from the list. This will open a window that will redirect you to Ziflow. Please authenticate using your Ziflow credentials within your default browser.

After you've authenticated, click on a Create proof button. This will pop up a window where some basic details (proof folder location in Ziflow, proof name, video quality and render location ) need to be filled in. Once the video is encoded and rendered the asset will be pushed to Ziflow.


Illustrator CC

Once you've created a project in Illustrator CC, click on a Window tab, select Extensions, and then choose Ziflow from the list. This will open a window that will redirect you to Ziflow. Please authenticate using your Ziflow credentials within your default browser.

After you've authenticated, click on a Create proof button. This will pop up a window where some basic details (proof folder location in Ziflow & proof name) need to be filled in. Once you click on a Create proof button the asset will be pushed to Ziflow.

Please note that all elements within your project must be embedded within the file so Ziflow can process it successfully.


New version upload from Adobe plugin

If you want to submit a new proof version, search for a proof that requires the revised asset inside the Ziflow adobe plugin. Then you can upload a new version either by choosing the Create new version button under the three-dot menu

or by selecting the same button (New version) inside the Proof Viewer when you open the proof:
