Adobe Premiere Pro CC v7.0.1

A month after its release, Adobe has updated Premiere Pro CC with version 7.0.1. In addition to bug fixes, the main novelty of this version 7.0.1 is to facilitate collaboration by allowing users to Premiere Pro and Prelude. Adobe Anywhere tool is to organize and streamline the capture and adding videos with a subscription of 24 60 € / month. To work together by exchanging data via Adobe Anywhere for video service. Later, at the end of the year, After Effects users should also be able to use this service. Adobe's video applications can be used by the project, with only one user at a time. But Now Adobe Anywhere allows multiple users to share the same resources like file, audio and video files, and edited sequences, metadata files to clarify the information and make quick searches placed in a database. The data are not placed locally in the computer hard drives of the creative team working on the video project: they are stored in a server that can be found in by the company which may in another city or another continent.

 The platform allows Adobe to share access to files and avoid conflicts when two users want to make changes had the same time on the same file and keep a history of changes. Adobe Anywhere platform is based on the Hub Anywhere Collaboration and the nodes using the Streaming Mercury Engine. This is supposed to allow the use of video files via internet in native resolution without loss of frames. It is no longer necessary to use low-resolution proxy. And we add the nodes, the more you can increase the workload and the number of users working together on a project. Mercury streaming algorithms should allow the transmission of real-time video streaming in, but it will require a decent connection to function properly. Specifically, Adobe Anywhere allows you to work on content placed on both local servers located at the other end of the planet with a computer that does not need to be a top model. When editing in Premiere Pro, the operations performed on movies such as positions, durations, blending mode etc are not calculated and performed locally in the user's computer.

 Instead, Adobe Anywhere will do perform all editing operations and reports directly from the remote server project. Premiere Pro does therefore need to send the actions that the user has done on movies streamed he received from the server, and display the result of assembly operations and made it comes from provided in the form of a streamed video. In other words, the editing software Premiere Pro 7.0.1 CC is confident to perform all tasks requiring high working power to the server, a user can simply turn on a MacBook Air as simple as a machine. For cons, the server side as data storage, it will take a minimum of professional equipment that can be a hindrance for very small structures. Bandwidth usage and servers have to predict the risk of a bottleneck and it will take a few months to see if the choices of technology Adobe are effective. One may well ask whether the lack of After Effects at the moment in Adobe Anywhere solution is not much difficult to manage due to the time calculations made which are much more numerous and complex than After Effects Premiere Pro, as soon as a project has a large number of layers and effects in power hungry as those requested by plug-ins, for example, Trapcode Particular and 3D Element. Adobe does not specify how Adobe Anywhere manages a group of users which one would make from time to time of installation work offline on a project: a weekend spent in the countryside, without an internet connection, for example. When the user reconnects to the Adobe platform Anywhere with a different version of the timeline compared to that found on the server, which has been changed in the meantime by other users, what will happen? If there are conflicts between two versions of a project, because it has been modified off line, what happens? What "cut" will be a priority? Adobe will require there to be online constantly to be able to use Premiere Pro with Anywhere? Similarly, the complete dependence on remote servers, and the risks of illegal intrusions could also be considered as an Achilles heel for large structures that reliability and safety are the essential bases. A remote server accessible online makes the connection reliability and redundancy solutions backups backup server that houses the media and the Adobe Anywhere platform even more essential.

 In a user working on a video project "old", each on his computer, in case of problems with one of them, only the data of the latter group are lost. But with Adobe collaborative solution, if the server and the Adobe platform Anywhere who are victims of an incident, all users in the group do not they may find themselves deprived of the project and media? It remains to be seen how promising the Adobe Anywhere platform keep its promises. If it does, this way of working much more collaborative would revolutionize the way many production companies and studios work. As Adobe said it would give less importance to the geographical proximity of members of the video project and the power of their computers and the artistic qualities of the team members, even if they live at the other end world.
