Hi All...

Anyone know about Adobe Bridge only subscriptions?

Probably for TEAMS....

but we have Acct execs who would like to search our collateral library, so this would be very helpful.


Lemme know...

thanks!

Alex -

It looks as if this is at least a possibility now, since it's a separate install, but I don't know whether you can license it separately:

One thought, if you have multiple licenses, is to use one of the two installs you are allowed to put Bridge on an Account Rep's computer. Seems a waste of the other apps, but if it works for your setup...

I've forwarded a link to this thread to one of the folks in charge of Bridge.

Here's what someone on the Bridge team just sent to me when I pointed him to this thread:
"[Y]ou should be able to download and install Bridge as a trial that never expires. You won't be able to open files in the Camera Raw dialog box or play video, but it will render all raw files for review purposes and everything else should work as normal."

Alex -

I just installed the CC version of Bridge on my desktop machine (as opposed to my workstation, which I use for graphics work), and, while I'm not able to play back video files within the Bridge interface, by double clicking the video file, it plays back fine within whatever player you've set on your system to play back video files. So it must might work for your account reps...

The plot thickens - I just noticed that my install of Bridge plays back .flv videos just fine, but not .mp4. I'll test some other formats as well...

How about...

What single seat subscription of Adobe software would also give me access to Bridge?

do I have to sign up for PPro CC so I can have access to say Bridge and Prelude? I could probably make that case to mgmt if I could sell it as a CC for teams subscription.

I think what's more than a little frustrating is for Adobe to promote a workflow pipeline, but not be clear on methods of implementing it.

I suspect that part of the problem is that for Bridge to have all the capabilities implemented, (audio, video, and print) it actually ties into pieces of all the other main suite products. That's why they don't seem offer it as a stand alone without other apps.

we'll get there....it's only a mater of time....

hmmmm...

as bridge is, or has been, greatly extensible by flash....
and adobe controls FLV....this would explain native FLV support.

This would be acceptable for generating proxies in FLV via AME for the Acct exec teams to browse...
but it worries me for the future.

FLV doesn't feel like a future proof format, particularly considering the moves away from flash in the mobile space.

MP4 seems like a safer overall bet.

I'd hate to build a proxy library in FLV only have to build it again MP4....

Ahhh...

but mp4 does not appear to allow embedded metadata.

read some articles on f4v by adobe which would hold an mpeg4 stream...but I'm betting would allow for metadata embedding...


hmmm

Alex -

I have no problem at all embedding Metadata in .mp4 files. I'm able to look up the AE project my clip was created in, add keywords, as well as add my copyright metadata from a template created in Bridge. Have you tried adding Metadata to a .mp4 file? If it hasn't worked for you, try right-clicking the clip in Bridge, and choosing "Purge Cache for Selection" - this usually brings back the capability. You can also do this for multiple selected files. Maybe it depends on the flavor of .mp4, and the fact that the MP4 is a container, and can have a number of audio, video, or subtitle streams inside. Just guessing...
