Cloud services are firmly gaining traction in virtually all business spheres, and the film production industry is no exception. The new offer of Adobe is a cloud-based Productions panel meant to complement the line of Adobe products called Premiere Pro. The latter package for filmmaking has been highly popular among creative producers and editors, and the addition of Productions promises to make the collaborative editing work simpler. In line with the modern demands of distributed collaborative work on the projects, Adobe has developed Productions to deliver a Google Drive-like experience to all participants of a filmmaking project. With Productions, they will obtain a unique overview thereof. The project’s heads can distribute portions of work to various team members, giving different access rights, and managing the workflow seamlessly.
Benefits of Productions
One of the unique opportunities that the Productions panel brings to life is remote work on large, complex projects spanning from small clips to feature films and TV shows. Access to the project’s materials via cloud solutions without any compromise on quality is a distinct feature that no Adobe products previously had. Besides, the Productions panel makes team projects and collaborations hassle-free, with a whole arsenal of features and functions streamlining project work and bringing order to the remote team’s workflows.
What Else Does Adobe Have in Store?
Among collaborative Adobe products, the Team Projects feature is worth mentioning. It unifies editors and motion graphics artists to work on the project across several Adobe products, including Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Media Encoder. As a result of Productions integration into the distributed work package, projects from Team Projects can be converted to Productions as standalone files without lengthy re-rendering.
What impact is the Productions panel expected to have on the digital industry?
Overall, it is expected to bring sizeable improvements to the organization of collaborative work in distributed teams using Adobe products. Simon Mosheshvili, Senior Vice President of Latin American Operations at Digital Edge, evaluated all Adobe products highly, pointing out their practical value for any digital business producing visual content. He also spoke of the Productions panel as an eagerly expected innovation from Adobe. In his opinion, such solutions simplify the creative workflow and gain strategic significance amid the current global coronavirus pandemic, enabling harmonious and productive remote work for filmmaking teams.
