The extension will save the task you had selected in ftrack as long as it is running. To change which task you are working on, you will need to relaunch Adobe Premiere.
Check the Sequence checkbox to encode and add the currently active sequence as a component to when publishing. The sequence is encoded using Adobe Media Encoder. When Adobe Media Encoder has started, you can do any additional configuration before kicking of the encoding using the Start Queue-button. Once the encoding has finished, the publish process will continue.
If you choose to include the sequence, you will be presented with a few additional Export Settings.
The export preset to use for encoding the sequence. By default, the selector will list any presets found in the
MediaIO/systempresetsin the Adobe Premiere installation directory. The environment variable
FTRACK_PREMIERE_PRESET_PATHcan be set to specify where to look for presets. The variable should be set to an absolute path of a single directory containing EPR files, possibly organized into subdirectories. For example:FTRACK_PREMIERE_PRESET_PATH=/path/to/custom/presets
When publishing, the preset used will be saved and set as default next time the extension is opened.

- Entire Sequence - Uses the entire duration of the sequence.
- Sequence In/Out - Trims to the In and Out marks set on the sequence.
- Work Area - Trims to the work area specified.
Check the Thumbnail checkbox to capture and set the current frame as the version’s thumbnail.
You can display additional information useful for troubleshooting by clicking Toggle debug information in the bottom right of the extension panel. Doing so will display the current ftrack context, the event server connection information and the last published event.
When you publish, the extension will first save a temporary copy and use the temporary files when publishing. Make sure you use an ftrack location which manages the data to persist the files.
