What is PRPROJ file?

PRPROJ file extension is used by video editing tool Adobe Premiere Pro. PRPROJ is a video project file that contains timeline comprised of video and audio elements, visual effects, transitions, and applied edits. PRPROJ files also store project settings, including display formats, transition settings, rendering, and capture format.
