Learn about Sequence Locking, visual cues, and offline editing for conflict-free video editing collaboration using Team Projects.
On this page:
While you perform edit operations (such as trim, move, delete, and more) on the locked sequence, other collaborators will have view-only access to earlier versions of the sequence until you publish your changes.
Sequence Locking also offers visual indicators to your collaborators in several panels that show who is editing the sequence and which changes have been published. Indications appear in the Timeline panel, Project panel, and Program Monitor.
Collaborators see your edits only once you publish. While you edit, the sequence is locked and view-only for your collaborators to avoid conflicts.
Editing your sequence locks the sequence just to you. Your collaborators now have view-only access and cannot do edit operations.
Publish changes and add a note to unlock the sequence.
The Up to date status shows that all changes are published, and no other edits are pending to sync. Another collaborator can start editing the sequence, initiating the Sequence Locking.
When you're editing a sequence, other collaborators can play / seek / scrub through the sequence, duplicate the sequence, and even copy clips from that sequence.
When you publish your changes to a sequence, the lock on it is released. The collaborators will then see your changes and get the option to update the changes in their projects.
While publishing, you can also add a comment for the collaborators.
When you are editing a sequence, the Project panel will indicate that editing is in progress, and the Publish button will be enabled.
Once done editing, select Publish.
You can add any comments to let the other collaborators know about your changes.
Select Publish to complete the publishing process.
Saving your project does not publish it to your collaborators. To share your changes, you must select the Publish button.
If you're an active collaborator and currently editing a sequence, your sequence will be locked so that only you can edit and make changes.
If another active collaborator is editing the sequence, you'll be prevented from making any changes to the sequence. Until you update to the latest version of the sequence, you'll only be able to view an older version and will not have access to any changes made by collaborators or the ability to edit the sequence.
Visual cues with options to Update and Publish the changes for an active collaborator.
The Show Asset Status icon shows a white pen indicating it's being edited.
If you're an active collaborator editing a sequence, the rest of the members will have view-only access and get different visual cues.
If another active collaborator is editing the sequence in the Team Projects, you'll be prevented from making any changes to the sequence. You'll also see multiple visual cues and sequence status notifications in the Project and Timeline panels.
View-only status in the Timeline and Project panels with the name of the active collaborator.
Update available notification indicating that the collaborator has published the sequence with changes.
The Show Asset Status icon shows a downward white arrow.
While collaborating on Team Projects, a cloud icon in the Premiere Pro header bar displays your online or offline status. It offers a quick visual representation of your internet connectivity status while working on a collaborative project. If you are disconnected and offline, your changes are locally saved to be synced once the internet connectivity is restored.
If you hover over the cloud icon, you can view a tooltip that displays the last time your locally saved changes were synced or if there are any sync pending.
The cloud icon status shows a green check icon indicating connected status with all local changes saved and synced.
The cloud icon shows a greyed-out cross icon and mouse over on the icon informs that your changes are being saved locally.
When you mouse over the cloud icon based on your connectivity to the Internet, you'll view details such as:
- Project saved. Locally saved [Time]. Sync Pending.
- Project saved and synced. Last synced [Time].
- Disconnected. We will save your work until you reconnect. Locally saved [Time].
Team Projects includes an offline editing capability so you may continue working even if your Internet connection is temporarily interrupted. During such interruptions, you cannot publish your changes or get the latest updates from other collaborators, but you can continue to work with your edits being saved locally. When you reconnect to the Internet, the Update and Publish buttons reappear.
Working on Team Projects for an extended period when disconnected from the Internet isn't recommended. The offline editing feature is meant to provide safety and security if there are intermittent Internet interruptions only.
When you lose Internet connectivity and go offline while editing a sequence in Team Projects, apart from the connectivity status visual cues, your project panel will also show the disconnected asset status. Sequence Locking also gets disabled, and another collaborator can lock the sequence and start editing the sequence.
You can still continue to work in disconnected status, but you cannot publish your changes, and all your edits are saved locally in a duplicate sequence. When the connection is restored, based on the possibility of a conflict, you'll be notified of further actions for the project.
When you reconnect to the internet after working offline, and no one else has edited the sequence, you'll have the option to update the changes you made while offline and continue editing the sequence.
When you were offline and editing a sequence that had no lock, if another collaborator also edits the same sequence simultaneously, upon reconnecting to the internet, you will receive a notification alerting you of a conflict. You can use the Duplicate option to duplicate the sequence to keep working on your unpublished changes.
In the event that multiple collaborators (two or more collaborators) edit the same sequence offline, when they come back online, only the first user to reconnect will have the option to publish their changes to the contentious sequence. Other collaborators will be warned of the conflict once they reconnect to the internet, and their work will be automatically saved to a new sequence.
