I am working on/with a shared environment for the first time and I need to know some ground rules. We will have a story editor watching all of our footage on Avid while we are still ingesting. If she opens a bin, can I still add footage to it or is it locked? Is there some sheet out there that sets the ground rules? Any other advice about what happens when two people are working on the same project? Before you ask - yes - we are using Unity.
Whomever opens the bin first has read and write capabilities. Anyone else opening a bin that is already opened will only have read capabilities. No changes can be made. But they can load, play, and edit. But cannot add comments, locators and such to the clips in the bin. If they do, they will be prompted with a "save bin as" and now you are managing multiple bins.
