Graft? :)

There's no question, at least in my mind, that FCPX has some sort of cloud functionality in the works. It might take the form of iCloud integration, it might not.

But it seems the seed has been planted.

What I find interesting about this little preview (and of course we will need more details) is that it seems Adobe is going to let you host your own server.

For those that have a "server", this sounds very promising.

This looks and sounds totally awesome. My partners and I have been wondering how we would collaborate when we finally leave FCP7 and lose iChat Theater Preview. We have our own servers and reasonable bandwidth so if this works as promised we should be happy campers. Looking forward!

Agreed. It could potentially make collaboration with offsite AE artists a bit easier as well.

Very curious about the hardware requirements!

Hopefully not. Apple so far has proven that they just can't get the "cloud" right. It works for syncing your device and your computer - sort of. Try to access something simple, like your iCloud e-mail via a browser, and the iCloud experience is one of the most consistently unreliable on the web.

[Jeremy Garchow] "What I find interesting about this little preview (and of course we will need more details) is that it seems Adobe is going to let you host your own server."

Watch the video. They talk about being connected to an Omneon MediaGrid. This is not something most editors can implement. They is something for CNN and similar operations, as their press release discusses. The beauty, though, is if a place has deployed the infrastructure, then you as an editor, can tap into it long distance (or across the hall) with the code built into Premiere.

All the big VFX houses already follow the sun. Transcontinental workflows are still very difficult, though, due to bandwidth and latency issues.

I lost my first bid to an Indian firm earlier this year. However, to Jeremy and Joe's point, I have also won bids in Chicago, San Francisco, and Paris this year -- and I'm in the NY metro area.

Re: Adobe Anywhere

This would be perfect for my current situation. Production Company in Virginia...production in Virginia. Post Supervisor, assistant editor and one editor in Virginia. Three editors and one VFX guy in Los Angeles. Currently using Avid because I can send back a bin with a cut and it relinks...but they don't get the media that I brought in on my end, like SFX and some music. If we had this, and I brought the music into the project onto the cloud server...then they can just open up and watch my cut. Or do all of the needed OMF and VFX prep (the assistant back in Virgina) leaving us editors to move onto the next show.

We didn't use Premiere on this because of the relinking issues (media management) that happen when you send projects or cuts to another person who has the same media. Relinking is required 80% of the time, and is one file at a time.

THis peaks my interest. Because it looks like the editors share the same project file. As they don't close or open projects to see the cut the other person was working. They did some sort of sharing thing though. Still...it's like an Avid Unity in the ether.

Mercury Streaming Engine...interesting.

[Shane Ross] "Mercury Streaming Engine"

rather. I'm holding off now, for the umpteenth time, on an imac purchase in the hopes that the next one has nvidia. I've had the cash for a full bang imac for a while, but given I personally think its going to be premiere in a range of scenarios over the next year, I'm horribly dis-inclined to lump with an ati card. Given that so many of us have this as a concern, and apple being an iron sales company - I find it hard to believe that the next imac will not be nvidia powered? In at least the 27" fully loaded sales scenario, we have to be a realistic factor?

This looks really interesting to me. I have recently made the decision to go CS6/ Resolve and build a grunty WIN box to run it for post finishing. I am also hoping that by the end of next year I will have fibre internet (even though I am in rural Tasmania at the bottom of the world) so I can have the grunt server on fast internet and collaborate with editors and AE artists locally, interstate or anywhere.

This is why I don't think it's terrible exciting now, but if U.S. internet connections get a overhaul for upload speed to where its feasible to upload footage to the cloud, it could be a great boon if merged with Adobe Creative Cloud using some fast hardware on their end to stream it back.

Yes. Bandwidth is the "only" limitation of cloud technology, in my opinion.

Otherwise we'd all be editing footage in the cloud on 26" iPads and no I'm not joking.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

They've already got:

Mercury Playback Engine - for playback
Mercury Transit Engine - for I/O

They've just announced the Mercury Streaming Engine for Adobe Anywhere.

So that leaves the one big gaping hole in the Mercury line-up...

How about:

Mercury Render Engine - for output

Wouldn't that be sweet?

David, what would you envision a Mercury Render Engine doing?

I've been thinking a lot lately about the FCPX/Motion common renderer versus the distinct Ae/Pr renderers. I see major pros and cons with both approaches, so I'm at a bit of a loss about which one I want to write my rabid feature requests about!

I think Adobe is listening really well, and I think they might see value in not working natively all the time. It will also open up avenues between their own applications."

Basically, I'm hoping for something like what Jeremy's describing -- a high-end finishing codec and a smart, efficient render/transcode process integrated into the application and workflow. I'd like to have better control over the render process and be able to use my render files for final output, like how it works in FCP legacy (or if not like FCP, then as efficiently as in FCP).

I understand Adobe's difference in philosophy regarding rendering and output, but my experience is that the time saved up front doesn't really get added back at the end. We all know how clients love to call at the very end with just one more little tweak... Really a bummer having to re-render every time for even the smallest change. This is probably my biggest feature request at the moment and I'd guess it would be for many other FCP converts as well.

I mentioned it on Twitter and promptly got shot in the face with a negative bullet saying that the streaming codec could never be a part of a greater family of codecs like DNxHD or ProRes.

A super efficient streaming codec other than h264 that is fast to encode would be more important than a production codec, looking at the big picture. Imagine the implications for delivery.

At the end of post lots of time is spent converting from our production codec into mpeg files of various persuasions. H264 looks good with high compression but takes forever to render.

If Adobe have developed a high quality low data rate streaming codec that renders faster than real time so that you can view remote editing then that is really significant to reducing the bottle neck at the end of post in chugging out various mpeg based files for web and other presentation displays.

It is also encouraging to think that high quality from all our effort n production can be efficiently streamed to the home viewer.

Hmm. You are seeing the proprietary streaming codec as a delivery codec? Interesting.

It sounds like it's not a faster than real time codec, it's a real time codec that's encoded on an Nvidia GPU as soon as you hit the space bar. It needs to be efficient enough to stream to multiple users in different rooms and perhaps environments. Maybe it'll be good enough for a delivery codec, I don't know.

As it stands h264 can be a realtime codec with the proper hardware. Adobe Meda Encoder can crunch through programs pretty quickly and also offers parallel encoding in software.

I think a proper production codec for Adobe would be much better served than a highly compressed delivery only codec. I don't know how much you've worked with Pr, but the native aspect gets old very quickly depending on what formats you are working with. A solid and robust codec for the CS would offer all kinds of efficiencies from rendering/realtime effects/conform/archive/translation. It would allow the use of cheaper hardware and not tie every room to a multiple GPUd machine.

Everyone's workflow is different. If delivery is your bottle neck, then I could see you want a new delivery codec that encodes fast. What codecs do you typically deliver?

I have been familiarizing myself with Speedgrade as Color is truly dead. I rather like what can be achieved with it. It has some huge workflow gaps, but it's new to the suite and they are working on it. An intermediate codec that is common to CS along with Prelude being the CS transcode hub and Dynamic Link would open a bunch of efficiencies with this process.

Re: Adobe Anywhere
on Sep 7, 2012 at 3:47:28 am

I hear what is being said about the need for a good production codec and an incremental rendering in Pr. Perhaps I am jumping the gun in presuming that the streaming codec is something new and a potential delivery codec but typically when a job is done, I make a master ProRes quiicktime and then from that I need to make small H264s to ftp to clients, plus higher quality h264s for film festivals, blu ray, plus an m2v for DVDs (but this is something that is slowly dying thankfully).

Because I have many clients interstate there is often a delay in sharing the changes and adjustments to the final in a quality that is worthwhile. Typically a producer who is thousands of miles away sends an email of changes to a grade or online from a crappy small h264 which isn't accurately showing details like titles & graphics well. There is a delay in rendering a crunched down file that is small and efficient to stream. So I like the prospect of a client being able to interact directly with the final sequence via a cloud subscription whilst being able to quickly see at a proper resolution. I got excited to see that the demo stressed the picture quality and that there was not delay in making a change and then streaming the change.

To extrapolate that to the ability to quickly create quality delivery streams for film festival etc and also potentially broadcasters is intriguing. Broadcasters are locked into mpeg2 delivery mostly and at one stage I did look at some good real time hardware encoders. Still they demand HDCam tape but that's another story.

Re: Adobe Anywhere

Speedgrade. Yes very interested and I understand the current need to transcode round trip and not have dynamic linking will get old very quickly as well. So again a common working codec for both sg & Pr is important. I often have the need to collaborate with DPs or director/camera people who are interstate. Most of my work is remotely so again having the ability to conduct a grade session with this level of speed and quality is important in my case.

All in all this really pushes the choice to Adobe for my workflows and I hope that the production codec & render issues are also well resolved so that sharing a dynamic linked Pr/Speedgrade session might also be a possibility.

Michael -

You may laugh at this, which I did at first, but I've been getting high quality approvals to my clients via my YouTube Channel. I got sick of sending a small approval copy via Dropbox to the agency I was working for, then finding out that the final client approval couldn't be made, because the "picture was too small", or "it looks out of focus", or "it's jumpy on my machine". Of course it looked bad, it was an approval copy...any higher quality wouldn't play back on the client's old gasping Pentium processor.

So...I put an approval copy up on a YouTube channel, set up so that it could only be viewed via a link which I sent out. This was important to the client, since there was proprietary information in the production. It worked like a charm! The quality was great, CGs were readable. Everyone was happy. A bit off topic, but good to know nonetheless.

Thanks Joseph. I have been using Vimeo for the same reason but it takes a while for the file to upload and be streamable. Youtube also has the annoying habit of muting audio if it finds non cleared music which some temp tracks have.

One advantage of Youtube though is that many of the new TVs can stream it directly so the client can view on a TV not a computer screen. But this Adobe anywhere idea means a level of direct colaboration and review rather tahn an encode upload download lag, even with Youtube. Also I am working on 52 minute docos so often the client wants the whole show to review.

[Michael Gissing] "I got excited to see that the demo stressed the picture quality and that there was not delay in making a change and then streaming the change."

According to the video, the "change" happens only after you share the sequence, so you'd have to share the sequence with your clients, they'd receive it, and they would play it back. They, of course, would have to know how to operate and run premiere.

The streaming part comes in where the media is on a fast server and encodes the native file formats to this streaming codec for playback on your local machine.

Back at the server, processing is happening to the native files. In the case of After Effects, compositions are streamed as one stream, not the separate composite streams. This seems to suggest that one might need more than one CPU and probably several GPUs. Unless, of course, there's a newer better efficiency codec at the helm of the CS Suite from which the streaming codec is derived. I would hope this would include an i-frame codec with multiple resolutions. The video also mentions starting in Prelude.

I'm sure we will be hearing more about this soon, and maybe my hopes are too high.

What I think would be cool is to use Prelude as the Creative Suite hub/traffic circle. This would allow you to send a sequence to Prelude, clients could mark up the timeline with comment markers, and then they fire back the sequence to you with the markers in place right in Pr. And of course, Prelude would handle any transcodes that need to happen.

Talk about an ecosystem.

This made me laugh harder than it should have.

I guess I see Adobe Anywhere the most useful within our own virtual walls. We are small, but we are busy which means all of us aren't in the studio all the time. Being able to create notes in a unified interface that we all understand without leaving the application is pretty sweet. The collaboration between us as a company, would be a very welcome addition. I just hope you don't have to have BBC/CNN money to do it.

Our clients will still watch web screeners if they can't come to the studio.

[Walter Soyka] "As demoed at NAB"

I'm assuming this is what I saw them demo at NAB. (for some reason my browser won't play the Adobe TV clip)

As I recall, I believe all the files (media and projects) are kept on a server. You run the apps on your computer. (PP, AE, etc) When running PP, the server streams the media to you. When hit stop, it downloads a single full frame image. So it's trying to keep the bandwidth requirements low.

In the demo, the created a PP project, in Vegas. Then had another guy modify the same project at a remote location and then they showed his changes "real-time" in the Vegas booth.
