Press release is kinda vague. IIRC you could run the old FCP on ISIS too but it basically just functioned like any other shared storage. I wonder, other than compatibility, what you get by going ISIS over other shared storage for Adobe.

Being able to play Avid media and read AAFs from Avid certainly makes it easier to hop between the two programs than between Avid and the old FCP.

So Andrew, you don't think we should read too much into it, do you?

I don't see it as that big of a deal either. ISIS's strong point when it comes to Avid is that you can share the same project file. You can't do that with FCP 7, nor Adobe Premiere...because of how the apps are. Avid has separate folders for all the bins, Adobe projects are all in one file. So unless they figured out a way to share project files, it's nothing more than a shared server to store media.

Unless they figured out project sharing...

[Robert d'Alexis] "So Andrew, you don't think we should read too much into it, do you?"

Yeah, I would not read anything into it. I think it's basically just Avid trying to make ISIS a bit more versatile.

I doubt there is Avid style project sharing, but the press release said PPro can use Avid media so that's already a step up from FCP 7 on ISIS.

Well, of course it can use Avid media. The main drawback is that if you import the MXF files...you'll need to make sync clips. The audio and video come in separate. Unless the latest update addressed that.

The big difference here is that Avid and Adobe engineers have been working together directly to optimize the storage and Premiere to perform as well as with Media Composer.

History...
ISIS is obviously well optimized with MC, achieving the best server-to-client bandwidth and overall server bandwidth. With other editing systems the performance was/is not as great. Often you had to seperate your virtual drives ("workspace" in Avid lingo) in order to maximize performance.

One of the root issue was the way other editing systems request data. They are inconsistent in packet size.

Supposedly, Avid requested from Adobe engineers to modify Premiere so it can achieve the same performance as MC with ISIS.

There is no Unity/ISIS project sharing with Premiere. Adobe Anywhere is the only known solution for that.

Thanks for the clarification. That "suspicious" collaboration makes sense now, at least to me. :-)

FWIW, ISIS supports FCP X , Resolve, and Smoke as well... From the product site..

"it now supports 4K and Ultra HD collaborative workflows; more third-party applications, including Premiere Pro, Smoke, Final Cut Pro X, and DaVinci Resolve"

Thanks Charlie, that's good to know.
