Can TWO Editors Work On The SAME Project Separately ??

Have Premier CS3 on XP
We have a heavy edit this week for a film festival.
Can one editor work on part 1 on one PC machine...and another editor work on part 2 on a mac...and then somehow... be able to transfer the mac timeline over to the PC machine for final work.
What special gottcha tricks do I need to know???
We can get both editors to use the same clip names. They will be on different drives...but the same structure...the same directories and filenames exactly on each drive. The Mac version would copy the master clips folder im thinking. Both machines...same raw materials.
Im just concerned that we may forget to do an important step... and not be able to successfully bring all the edit timeline pieces over so they point correctly.
Thanks for your critical tips and tricks

Should work OK, as long as you're using the same media source for both platforms/projects. In other words, you need to be working with something like DV AVIs or QT DV MOVs with both. One platform will suffer because it's not as tuned to work with the other platform's media, but it's doable. You could capture the same media to each platforms native media (DV AVI on PC, QT DV MOV on Mac), but relinking once you transfer from Mac to PC will be a nightmare. If you're working with something like P2 MXF, though, this will be a breeze--just point to the proper directory and everything will be fine. This is a major benefit of PPro's native handling of such media, IMO.
You could also copy the media over, wholesale, from Mac to PC--I think this is what you're saying now that I'm reading your post again. I'm guessing that in this case, both machines would NOT be working with the same material originally, correct? Just note that you may have file system incompatibilities going from Mac to PC. Mac uses the HFS file system, whereas your PC is probably using NTFS. FAT32 is common to both systems (can be read/written on each) but you're limited in supported file sizes to less than 4GB. If you've got an HFS-formatted external drive you'd be moving to the PC, I recommend
HFS Explorer. It will allow you to mount and extract data from your HFS-formatted disc on the PC. There is also MacDrive, which is more tightly integrated with PC (disks show up as native filesystems in Explorer) but it's not free. Time might be an issue, though, and MacDrive might be the better option. There is a free limited trial, I believe.
Beyond that, just import the Mac-generated project into the PC-generated project, and relink your files. BE SURE TO DO THIS ON A COPY OF YOUR PC PROJECT, just in case the unthinkable happens. From there, the projects should be successfully merged, and you can proceed with final assembly. I would suggest keeping your additional timeline items to a minimum in the Mac project (ie. audio, graphics, titles, etc) just to eliminate possible transfer headaches. I really don't think you'll face an issue, but it could wreck your day if something goes haywire.
Finally, and most importantly, test this out if you value your sanity. This is not something you want to simply "hope" works without any sort of field trial. This should work perfectly well, but I assume to responsibility if it does not!
Good luck...

  • Can multiple people work on the same project at the same time with Creative Cloud for Teams?

    We have a project we are working on, and since it needs to be done in record time, multiple people need to be able to access the most current version. Is there a way to work on one project concurrently, like on Google docs?

  • How to work on the same project on two machines at the same time and also exchange progress seamlessly using Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014?

    We are working on a film project on Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2014. Two editors are working on the same film project (same pproj file ) on two machines. As a result the bin structure and the file structure is exactly the same. We even bought two licenses for the respective machines to make matters simple (at least we thought it would).
    Now when we share a sequence between the two machines, every time we have to import and re-link media. Also each sequence import comes with its own set of files, which are actually already present in the project. Basically the new sequences are looking to re-link the media to the original/ source files only and are completely ignoring the file structure present in the project.
    In all editing softwares, timeline/ sequence sharing is a very common practise when working on multiple machines. Why is it so tedious in CC 2014? Every time we share a sequence between the two machines the media gets doubled and tripled in the project. As a result the project file size is increasing perpetually. Already Premiere CC 2014 is extremely laggy and slow, and this stupid bug is making it more difficult for us to finish our work on time.
    Has anybody ever faced this issue? How do we solve it? We are willing to try out any workflow that you can suggest.

    Concurrently working on the same project it requires a specific implementation in all editing programs like Avid's Unity/ ISIS shared storage. That's what you are simply not considering. none of your issues would be any problem if your projects resided on a commonly accessed server or something like that. Check respective hardware solutions.

  • Can an editor and I work on the same project, at the same time in PPCC?

    I'm trying to figure out if two people can edit a project in live time... I'm currently struggling with the 20gb cloud limit for my projects and I think I'm just going to bring an in house editor into the mix. 
    Can he and I edit the same project from a NAS drive?

    As far as I know, "regular" Premiere Pro does not have any provision for the kind of file locking/unlocking required for 2 people to edit the same project... so if YOU save an edit and your other person saves after you, your edit is going to be overwritten and lost

  • Can two different account work on the same project?

    I work for a non-profit organization and we are think about switching platform for our website, we are looking in to Muse, our graphic designer already have a Adobe Muse account and we would like to get an other account for the organization, will it be possible for both our account to work on the same project? With an account we can only have two computer with Muse and there will be 3 working on the website.

    Hi Alexandre,
    At any given point not more than one person can work on a .muse file. Muse is not yet designed for a workflow like this. You can update the .muse file using three different accounts as long as the file is not opened at more than one end at the same time and the file needs to be shared manually in between the accounts once one person is done working on it.

  • OSB - many developers working on the same project?

    I was wondering if you can see any way multiple users could be working on and publishing to the same domain?
    Now if a couple of developers is working on the same project using Eclipse (OEPE), if one publishes, any other changes by other developers will not be visible on the osb server, as they will be covered by the publish.
    Do you have any ideas?

    You have to use version control on this situation.
    We had used version control with in our project and you can save work and time.
    1. You have to take a local copy of the project and make modification and compile and test it.
    2. If any user wants to leave for the day then, he has to comile the source code and push it in to source control. There may be some chances where you will pull out his code as well because of dependencies, when you compile it may fail. So compile and push in to the source control.
    3. There is an option where you can put a lock on the project folder where you are working.
    Note: If your team is working on common dev server, then you can think about having individual server still you should use source controlMuch more available.
    Use source control tools.

  • Users to work on the same project

    I'm like know how can I to allow all users to work on the same project, but this project was only read.
    Help please,

    Not sure what you mean, you should create separate usernames and register them. This is in the documentation (user guide).
    Then you can have these users work on the project.

    can two iTunes accounts share the same appleTV simultaneously ?

    This should help:
    iTunes: How to share music between different accounts on a single computer
    Note that when it says "publicly accessible location", it needs to be a place where everyone has read and write access. The most common such place is the Shared folder in the Users folder, but you can place the music elsewhere if you change the access permissions manually (don't start tinkering with permissions unless you're confident you know what you're doing and can reverse things if they get messed up). 

  • I would like to import two different cf cards from two different cameras into the same project/folder and have them be in order of the times they were taken, is there a trick?

    I would like to import two different cf cards from two different cameras into the same project/folder and have them be in the order of the times they were taken, any ideas on how to do this?

    Just import them normally and sort the project by date. They will fall into place. If you tried this and it isn;t happening then make sure the data and times on the two cameras are identical and make sure you are sorting by date and time and nothing else.

  • Can two Palm devices use the same Hot Sync ID?

    Can two Palm devices share the same Hot Sync ID using the same desktop? I presently owe a Treo 700p with a lot of purchased software. I'm considering buying a Palm TX handheld and would like to use both devices using the same Hot Sync ID. Is this possible and should there be any synchronization issues if they are syncing to the same desktop?

    You will be assured of unpredictable device behavior, random crashes, spontaneous resets, and other delights described in one of the boxes in the Read This First flyer if you sync two very different device models (phone vs. PDA, different screen sizes, etc.) to the same Hotsync ID on the same computer.
    This can be done but you will have to treat each sync as an Upgrade, rename the Backup folder, and reinstall third-party applications, reset your preferences, basically the entire process involving multiple syncs every time you sync. I don't think the headache involved is worth it.
    Suggest you decide which third-party apps you want on your second device and get an additional licence and registration from the developers.

  • Two airport devices wired to netgear router - can they both work on the same network?

    I have a Virgin Superhub 2 cable router. I would like to extend the wireless around the house using existing cables and have an Airport Express (v2) upstairs and an AirPort Extreme (v4) downstairs.
    Both would be connected individually to the netgear based router. When setting up the second airport device, can I asked it it extend the existing apple network I would have set up or must it be a different one. If it will extend, will it be wireless extend or wired as in both apple devices are wired to the same netgear router.
    Thanks in advance

    I had bought a ipod nano about a 6 mounths ago. Last week I bought the new ipod nano 2ed gen. I was wondering if I could plug both of them into the same computer (not both at the some time)but without screwing itunes up and loosing all my music? Also would i have to change the serial numbers of the ipods on the computer?

  • Two people working on the same IWeb-page and still keep our own work saved.

    Hi! I work together with a girlfriend buliding webpages in IWeb. Is it possible for us to exchange work when both of us is edithing the same webpage - and both of us have other pages one our own that we rader not share/update/change/edit/overwrite/delete,...?

    Yes. Are you referring to pages in the same site or separate sites?
    For separate sites the shared site would need to be it in its own domain.site2 file. Then follow the directions in this MacWorld online article: Managing an iWeb site from multiple Macs
    The important caveat to this is that both of you cannot work on the site at the same time and plenty of time must pass between one of you finishing their work and the other starting up. It's just the nature of the beast. Otherwise you would have to pass the domain.sites2 file/package back and forth between your two Macs.
    If your two Macs are connected together on the same LAN you could place the domain file on an external HD attached to one of the Macs so both would have access to the same file. Again, both of you could not work on the site at the same time.
    The other sites would then be in a separate domain file.
    If you're referring to pages in the same site it can be done by having the jointly managed pages in one site and your pages in a separate site and her pages in a separate site.
    Then in the joint site add blank pages representing your pages and her pages. In each blank page put the following code in an HTML snippet:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    parent.window.location = "URL TO PAGE ON SITE YOU WANT TO REDIRECT TO"; </script>
    Thanks to Cyclosaurus for this code
    On each of your sites you would add blank pages representing the joint page and each other pages with the same redirect code.
    Now you can edit and change your pages at any time, publish as she can also with her pages. For the joint pages you will have to use one of the methods I described above for separate site.
    See this demo page for more about the Redirect method: Redirect.
