Adobe CC 2017 and the Magic of Collaboration By Ric Getter Fall is the time for families to get together and one of the more interesting gatherings is when the extended family of ten-thousand or so Adobe customers meet up at Adobe MAX to share stories, swap tips and find out what the Creative Cloud has in store for the coming year. Teaming up on video One of the things they discovered when they arrived in San Diego this fall is that it will be a lot easier for creative teams to work together and with their clients. It’s been true for a long time. It can take a village to create a video. (If you include client input and approval chains, that can become a small city.) Yet unlike traditional publishing, developing useful collaboration tools have proven to be an immense challenge. If you had a large enough organization and the budget, Adobe Anywhere, a sophisticated hardware/software solution, offered some effective group workflows. Now, Adobe Team Projects, to be available as a feature-rich beta, puts similar power and, apparently, even more control in the hands of Creative Cloud subscribers. Coming to Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Prelude, and available early next year, Team Projects will let you share and collaborate wherever you are and however you connect, via either duplicated and synced local files, a network drive or low-resolution proxy files. Team Projects will manage accessibility and version control. Members of the creative team can say when to share their work, with whom and when. When conflicts arise (at least those that are media-related) a screen will display those differences and allow then to be resolved. More and more enterprises are creating their video content specifically for social media. In many cases, it’s become the source of their largest audience, it can offer the most precise metrics. Premiere will soon offer a new social media panel in beta, for direct access to some of Adobe’s powerful analytics tools. Other improvements are mostly of the under-the-hood
