Adobe today unlocked the new project management and collaboration features for Premiere Pro announced at the Sundance Film Festival and launched another Corona special for Premiere Pro and After Effects users. The new "Productions" features are designed to help make the workflow of large professional productions such as TV or web series with many episodes or even feature films clearer and more efficient.
The new features are embedded in Premiere by means of the new Production Panel in the program interface. It allows you to define overarching production directories whose subordinate projects can all access common assets such as audio files or titles that are used repeatedly. If multiple editors are working on the production, they can access project files among themselves, but cannot change them while someone else is working on them (write protection). The production data is stored in a local, shared location.
Scaling of projects in Adobe Premiere Pro per Productions
All sub-projects of a production share the settings, including scratchdisk directories. If a preview has been calculated for a project, it is automatically available to other editors of the project file, so there is no need to render it again.
The new production environment is aimed at production houses and agencies and, according to Adobe, has been used for films such as "Terminator: Dark Fate", "Dolemite is My Name" and currently for David Fincher&s "Mank" (the last two for Netflix). It will soon be made available to Creative Cloud subscribers as a Premiere Pro update.
Adobe Premiere Pro with new production features
Team Projects for Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects free until August
Adobe has also announced another special promotion (in addition to the one already launched at www.slashcam.de/news/single/Adobe-und-Avid-stellen-befristete--freie-Softwarel-15699.html) to help professional users through the corona crisis: effective immediately, all Premiere Pro and After Effects users with single user Creative Cloud subscriptions will be unlocked for Adobe&s collaboration features Team Projects until August 17, 2020. This allows users to work on projects together in the cloud, including different versions, backups and asset sharing.
Adobe Team Subscriptions for all Adobe Creative Cloud applications normally cost around 83 euros per month - in contrast to the 59.49 euros per month for individual users (although there is currently a special promotion running until 23 April for 35.69 euros / month for all apps).
Productions is designed for collaborators working on shared local storage. Team Projects is built for remote collaboration: assets can be stored locally with individual users; project files are securely stored in Creative Cloud. The two toolsets are distinct and currently cannot be combined. Productions is part of Premiere Pro and is included with all licenses. Team Projects is part of Team and Enterprise licenses for Premiere Pro and After Effects.
