Two Editors - No Server - One Project. Is Team Projects the only solution?
on Dec 5, 2018 at 12:56:06 am

Anyone have an updated assessment of Team Projects? Last posts were a few months ago, curious if anyone knows of success/failure status at this time.

We are a small team of two editors in two locations with no network, each has a RAID system with media that started out cloned so exact same drives with same names etc. We start with one Premiere project (for a documentary feature, so it has lots of sequences and lots of bins), and each editor makes various changes throughout the day. Then the goal is to end up with one master project at the end of the day.

Importing a sequence from one project to the other is working great, no duplicate clips are coming in because our media drive paths are identical as is every other Premiere setting we could think to set up identically.

However, if one editor reorganizes clips or other assets in bins, or adds assets such as music, graphics, etc., we're only able to update the other project manually, lots of painstaking back and forth. Obviously this is a key aspect to what Team Projects is supposed to do, but I've read lots about bugs.

To complicate matters, we're both having a problem just having a second project open alongside our main project, even if that second project is empty. Premiere is giving us the rainbow wheel of death when we click on anything at all in either project when both are open. The only solution is to not have a second project open when the main project is also open. That's a gremlin glitch already, so I'm concerned that moving to Team Projects might just add more gremlins.

What are other teams doing out there? Thanks!
