Today, Adobe has announced a new Premiere Pro feature: Productions. The new feature aims to help you manage projects and work collaboratively.
Premiere Pro’s Productions brings in new tools for managing projects, sharing assets between them, and keeping things organized for both individuals and teams. “We’ve seen tremendous growth of Premiere Pro among filmmakers, which has created a demand for new features like Productions” says Adobe. “Through festivals like Sundance—where more films than ever this year used Premiere Pro—we’ve had the opportunity to meet many brilliant new storytellers and learn about how they use the Adobe creative tools.”
Productions manages larger projects
When working on larger or more complex projects, Productions essentially breaks up the huge projects into smaller pieces. Teams can organize a workflow around reels and scenes.
“Episodic shows can be grouped by season, so it’s easy to access other shows to retrieve things like title sequences or audio elements,” says Adobe. Additionally, agencies can issue a project to each client.
You can re-use assets within Productions without having to create duplicates. Also, there’s a new panel in Premiere Pro that serves as the central hub for managing multi-project workflows. Every single file in the Productions folder becomes part of the project. It doesn’t matter if you are working on macOS or Windows. Every change you make on disk is carried in Premiere Pro. The changes in Premiere Pro are applied on disk.
In Productions, using shared local storage, multiple editors can work on different projects in the same project. Also, Project Locking makes sure no one overwrites your work. However, others can still access your project and copy content from it.
When is Productions going to be out?
All we know right now about a release timeline is that Productions is coming soon to Premiere Pro. We will keep you up to date as new information comes out.
