Use these storage best practices when setting up Productions in Premiere Pro.
Productions can be saved anywhere just like if you were working with a single project file. However, a networked shared storage system is required for a team of editors to collaborate in a production.
Productions in Premiere Pro can work on a wide range of available storage solutions. Because productions can work on many systems, Adobe does not validate compatibility for specific storage systems. Before purchasing or renting a shared storage solution ask if it has been tested to work with productions in Premiere Pro.
Core parts of collaborating with productions rely on the timestamps of files as reported by the file system. With shared storage systems there is usually a configurable date and time setting. Always check that your editing system time matches the storage server’s time.
The easiest way to ensure this is to set the server to communicate with an NTP time server. If this is not an option, manually set the time as close as possible. Check the server time often to make sure it has not drifted. More than a few minutes time difference can lead to unexpected behavior in Premiere Pro.
