A team project is a multiuser, multi-application alternative to an application-specific project file like a .prproj or .aep file. Multiple users can work in a team project simultaneously. When a collaborator opens a team project, the team projects service automatically makes a 'clone' of the current state of the team project for the user. It is opened in a private session.
To create a team project:
To invite collaborators now, click Edit. In the pop-up screen, enter the name or email address of the people with whom you want to collaborate. If you invited people in the past, you a drop-down list appears with a list of the most recently invited people, to speed up the invite process. As you type, the dialog provides matching search results to make finding the desired collaborators easier.
You can remove the selection by clicking 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.
Your collaborators receive an invitation to collaborate that appears in the Creative Cloud desktop application and in Premiere Pro, Prelude or After Effects. In the applications, select File > Open Team Project to access the Manage Team Projects dialogue. The Invites tab in the Manage Team Projects dialogue accepts or declines 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.
In the Manage Team Projects dialog window, select the existing team project that you want to link and click Link. At this stage, you can also create a team project by clicking 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 I open the Linked-TP-feature team project, a link appears indicating the connection that was established between these two team projects.
You can create linked team projects in Premiere Pro. After Effects and Prelude do not support linked team projects.
Select File > Open Team Project. In the Manage Team Projects dialog, projects are categorized under three tabs:
- Team Projects: Displays the list of the available team projects.
- Archive: Displays the list of archived team projects.
- Invites: Displays the list of team projects you have recieved invites for collaboration.
Select from the list of team projects, and click Open.
If you have multiple team projects and .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 is feature is useful when you have multiple team projects and you need to scan through the entire list 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.
