Learn how to create a Team Project from scratch, convert a Premiere Pro project into a Team Project, and import an After Effects project into a Team Project.
On this page:
You can create a Team Project directly from the start screen of After Effects and Premiere Pro. Or, from within the application, select File > New > Team Project.
Enter a name for the Team Project (required) and a description (optional). You can invite collaborators to join the Team Project or invite them later once you have added content.
To invite collaborators now, select Edit. In the Edit Collaborators dialog, enter the name or email address of the users with whom you want to collaborate.
If you previously invited users to collaborate, a drop-down list would suggest a list of the most recently invited users. Also, as you type, the dialog suggests matching search results.
You can remove the selection by selecting the X in the name tag. A user can also type an email address.
Suggestions are provided based on collaborators that the user has invited before or from the user’s organizational address book if they are part of an enterprise that has synced their Active Directory with the Adobe Admin console.
When you have added all your collaborators, select Invite.
Your collaborators receive an invitation to collaborate that appears in the Creative Cloud desktop app and in Premiere Pro or After Effects.
In the applications, select File > Open Team Project to access the Manage Team Projects dialogue. Use the Invites tab in the Manage Team Projects dialogue to accept or decline pending invitations.
You can manage your projects more effectively by linking one Team Project to another Team Project. For example, instead of opening one large Team Project to edit, it is convenient to open a smaller linked Team Project, that contains the relevant assets for a specific segment.
Before you create a linked Team Project, ensure that you have already opened a Team Project or created a Team Project.
To create a linked Team Project, select File > New > Linked Team Project...
You can also create a linked Team Project by choosing the context menu in the project panel. Right-click the project panel and choose New item > Linked Team Project.
In the Manage Team Projects dialog, select the existing Team Project that you want to link and select Link. At this stage, you can also create a Team Project by selecting New Team Project and link it to another Team Project.
A linked Team Project appears in the project panel as shown in the screenshot. In this case, the Linked-TP-feature team project is linked to the online-presence-test Team Project. So, whenever you open the Linked-TP-feature Team Project, a link appears to indicate the connection that was established between these two Team Projects.
If you change the linked Team Project after linking it to the parent Team Project, you have to share these changes within the linked Team Project.
You can create linked Team Projects in Premiere Pro. After Effects does not support linked team projects.
To convert a Premiere Project to a Team Project, open the project and select Edit > Team Project > Convert Project to Team Project…
Enter the name of your Team Project and a text description. You can add collaborators at this point or wait until later. Select OK.
To open an existing Team Project in After Effects, use the following steps:
Select File > Open Team Project. In the Manage Team Projects dialog, projects are categorized under three tabs:
Select from the list of Team Projects, and select Open.
The components of the project start to load in the background and After Effects displays them immediately with the status of the loading process. You can start to work on them while the remaining components load in the background.
If you have multiple Team Projects, save time and improve efficiency with the search and filter Team Projects option in the Manage Team Projects dialog.
To open the dialog, select File > Open Team Projects. In the Manage Team Projects dialog, there is a search box where you can type the project name and get all the related projects in the list. This feature is useful when you have multiple Team Projects and don't want to scan through the entire list looking for a particular project.
You cannot convert an After Effects project directly to a Team Project. You can, however, import an After Effects project into a Team Project.
In After Effects, open the Team Project you want to import into.
To import into the current Team Project, select File > Import > File, choose the .aep file, and select Open.
