Coming soon to Premiere Pro, Productions is a collection of new tools for managing editing projects and sharing assets between the projects. In addition, the new tools allow editors/producers to keeping all assets and involved parties organized.
Productions can work for both solo editors, and those collaborating with a team of post-production professionals. Such as often the case on TV productions and feature films.
Battle-tested in Hollywood
Adobe’s Productions feature set for Premiere Pro has been designed from the ground up with input from top filmmakers and Hollywood editorial teams.
Some Hollywood editors have already “beta tested” Adobe’s Productions on major films such as “Terminator: Dark Fate” and David Fincher’s upcoming “MANK.”
Adobe Productions Key Features
Manage Larger Editing Projects
Editors working with large or complex editing projects face many challenges. Hence why Productions was developed to allow editors to divide these large projects into smaller chunks. This way, the project become more manageable.
For example, an editorial team working on a feature film can organize their workflow around reels and scenes. Episodic TV/Web shows can be grouped by season, so it’s easy to access other shows to retrieve things like title sequences or audio elements.
Creative Agencies, on the other hand, can allocate a Production to each client, so they can quickly reference and retrieve assets from existing projects.
Better Organization and Synchronization
Media referencing across projects allows editors to reuse assets within the production without creating duplicates. This helps editors keep individual projects light and fast.
The new Production panel in Premiere Pro provides a command centre for managing multi- project workflows. Editors can add any project to the Productions folder, which then becomes part of the production.
Productions will save any changed regardless of macOS or Windows. Changes in Premiere Pro are applied on disk. Productions keeps everything in sync.
Designed for collaboration
Multiple editors can work on different projects in the same production, while utilising shared storage. Project Locking ensures that no one overwrites your work. Editor colleagues can still access your project and copy content from it. However, they can’t make changes until you’ve completed your edit.
Designed to Streamline Collaborative Workflow
All projects in a Production share the same settings, including scratch disks. This means that preview files rendered by one editor can be available for all editors who use that project, ensuring smooth playback and time-saving for the whole team.
Likely Release Date?
Adobe has not yet disclosed a specific date for when Productions will come to Premiere Pro CC 2020.
However, the company stated release is coming soon. Our guess is that Adobe will release Productions sometime around end of March/early April.
NAB Show 2020 is scheduled for April, and in the past, Adobe has released major updates around that time. So, stay tuned.
