Adobe Team Projects (Beta) is a hosted collaboration service that lets your video editing team work simultaneously on shared sequences and comps across Adobe Creative Cloud video applications. Editors and motion graphics artists can share a project without fear of overwriting each other’s efforts. (Team Projects is available only for Creative Cloud for enterprise and Creative Cloud for teams.)
After you sign in to your Creative Cloud for enterprise or Creative Cloud for teams account, launch Adobe Premiere Pro. Click New Team Project on the Start screen. Give your team project a name and invite collaborators to work on it by clicking Edit, adding their email addresses to the queue, and clicking Invite. Click OK to close the dialog box.
All collaborators will receive a notification in their Creative Cloud desktop application, where they can either accept or reject the invitation.
Note: If you are already on a team project and would like to share it with others, choose File > Team Project Settings and add their names. The project creator can add or remove collaborators as necessary.
To receive the latest changes made to the project, click the Get Latest Changes button at the bottom of the Team Project panel.
Note: You can also receive the latest changes by choosing Edit > Team Project > Get Latest Changes.
After making edits to your team project, click the Share My Changes button at the bottom of the Team Project panel. In the dialog box that appears, you can also add a comment describing what you changed. Click Share.
Note: You can also share your changes by choosing Edit > Team Project > Share My Changes.
In cases where one user makes a change that conflicts with changes another collaborator makes, click the Resolve Conflicts button. In the Resolve Conflicts dialog box, you can address the problem in one of three ways:
- Keep your version
- Take the shared version
- Copy and rename your version, and then take the shared version
You can resolve conflicts individually or in bulk by selecting all assets. Click Resolve to apply your change.
Media used in your team project remain on your local machine. Share assets with your team using Creative Cloud assets, network shared storage, or an alternate cloud storage option. If you ever experience any missing media, choose Edit > Team Project > Media Management from the main menu to access the media management tool. Here you can find missing assets or correct other media issues. Select one of the missing assets and then click New Media Mapping. Navigate to the location where the assets are stored.
Note: All collaborators on a team project need access to the project’s assets — unless they have their own copies. Otherwise the media will appear offline for them.
While you’re in a team project, you can use the History Slider to view previously shared versions of the project. Simply click the History Slider button in the Media Browser panel. Below the button is a timeline of the shared versions, along with comments that collaborators may have made. Double-clicking any clip or sequence in a previous version will open a read-only copy of that asset in the Source panel. If you like a previous version of a sequence and want to bring it into the current version, you can always copy and paste that asset into the current version of your team project.
Team Projects supports Adobe Dynamic Link between Premiere Pro and After Effects, so you can work on a project in either application without rendering and exporting sequences or compositions.
Export media across your team projects using Adobe Media Encoder. After you make your choices in the Export Settings dialog box, click the Queue button to send your project to Media Encoder, where you can make further refinements and encode your video.
