Is Shared Storage Workflow Missing from your Media Production Curriculum?

There’s no shortage of demand for the skills necessary to professionally package and present content, which is why more and more educators are embracing media production in their mass communications & journalism curriculums. Today, hundreds of universities and even high schools now offer film/video production courses and degrees.

It’s not just for film schools anymore.

FCPX and Transitioning to Deconsolidated Libraries for Shared Storage

With the introduction of shared storage into a Final Cut Pro X team, workflows tend to open up and become more sophisticated.

Smaller workgroups usually begin by keeping FCPX libraries and their corresponding media in the localized, self-contained bundles FCPX uses by default. This is a logical way to work for very small teams, especially when there’s no shared storage. But, while this works acceptably for smaller, condensed environments, this workflow shows itself to be less efficient with the addition of network storage and increased users/collaboration. As your team grows and more users need more assets, it can be better to have media stored separately from libraries.

Combating Ransomware in Post Production Operations

Ransomware was a hot topic this last weekend. In a developing story, Britain’s National Health Service was hit by a major attack, with other targets worldwide including FedEx, Deutsche Bahn, Telefonica, Nissan, and Renault. And while not quite the same flavor of ransomware, even Netflix and Disney were recently targeted in high profile attacks.

Extortion attempts like these bring to light the fact that no person or company with important data can blissfully ignore the threat. In fact, post production may be a ripe target.

Adobe Team Projects and Premiere Pro with EVO Shared Storage (video)


Collaboration is a necessity for creative teams — projects require contributions from many people and disciplines. You have your assistant editors, VFX artists, animators, audio post-team, and colorists. Until now, the norm has been to have everyone take their turn with project files — or use project locking features with EVO. But now, everyone can work on the same project, even across multiple Adobe applications.

Adobe CC Enterprise and Teams subscribers with Premiere Pro CC 2017 can now natively share, manage, and collaborate within a single team project file from anywhere in the world — a huge step forward for collaborative post production workflows with Premiere.
