When working within a Production in Premiere Pro, you can lock a project when editing to prevent unwanted conflicts. 

Cross project referencing

Cross-project referencing

A clip in one project can be reused throughout every other project in the production. This reduces the need for duplicate master clips.

Shared project settings

Project settings include important settings such as scratch disk, GPU renderer, and capture settings. A benefit of having project settings synchronized is shared preview render files.

Productions provides a flexible, scalable framework for organizing multi-project workflows. With Productions, complex workflows can be divided into manageable projects, for overall efficiency and collaboration using shared local storage. Assets can be shared between projects within a Production, without creating duplicate files. 

Individual editors can group related projects in a Production for improved organization and efficiency. Large projects (documentaries, films, TV) can be broken into reels or episodes where multiple editors collaborate according to their preferred workflow using shared storage network.

Productions includes the following capabilities:

  • Project locking - Prevent other users from overwriting your edits while your working on an individual project.
  • Cross project referencing - The ability to bring in sequences and clips from other projects in your production (without creating duplicate files).
  • Shared project settings - The ability to specify the same project settings across all projects in a production.

For more information, see Using Productions in Premiere Pro.

Project locking

A Productions feature

When working within a Production in Premiere Pro, you can lock a project when editing to prevent unwanted conflicts. Locked projects are available for use in a read-only state for other users, allowing editors to review each other's work and even copy pieces out of locked projects without needing to request the project owner to release the project. 

For more information, see Change project lock status.

Cross-project referencing

A Productions feature

A clip in one project can be reused throughout every other project in the production. This reduces the need for duplicate master clips. Avoiding duplicate master clips has multiple benefits:

  • You only need to manage master clip properties once.
  • Individual project file sizes remain small, which helps keep project load and save times fast.

Shared project settings

A Productions feature

Project settings include important settings such as scratch disk, GPU renderer, and capture settings. A benefit of having project settings synchronized is shared preview render files. When a sequence is rendered by any editor on the team it automatically shows as rendered for all other editors who open that project ensuring smooth playback for everyone and time savings for the team.
