Remote editing- cloud or otherwise
on Mar 12, 2020 at 12:00:17 am

The NAB and COVID-19 issues have brought up the idea of remote editing from the home or elsewhere via "the cloud." Here and in other forums, BeBop, Frame, Blackbird, and others have been mentioned as the wave of the future. But in reality, who here thinks that will work?

Long-distance off-line/proxy-res editing has been done for a long time, both in the cloud and other ways. Ultimately you have to deal with native master files. No one is realistically going to put 40TB (or more) of 4K ProRes4444 or HQ media in the cloud. So unless you simply want to work with a specific editor in another locale - or you have a team spread around different cities - how do you see that working?

On top of that, the idea of an offline/online workflow where someone else does your finishing is so far removed from the majority of the industry today. What are the thoughts here?
