[Andrew Kimery] "Would Adobe's DynamicLink and DirectLink be examples of what you are talking about? Or at least examples of things headed in the direction of what you are talking about?"

Dynamic Link is a purely uni-directional bridge from one application to another. It reduces the friction in a multi-app workflow by eliminating intermediate renders, which is nice, but it still requires two apps to have their own native and separate representations of the underlying edit.

Direct Link is conceptually much closer to what I'm suggesting, in that SpeedGrade is using Pr's timeline and feeding back into Premiere.

Sidebar: Adobe is selectively picking up bits of their other apps and putting them into Pr. Look at masks and Lumetri. Which is better? Duplicating functionality across related apps, or connecting the apps more cohesively?

[Andrew Kimery] "To a degree but if editing is still going full throttle then audio and grading will be doing a lot of needless work since the edit will be in constant flux. Even if editing is really close to locked you'll still have to have a conform process of some sort so that the editing changes can be non-destructively passed along to audio and grading."

I want to eliminate conform as we know it. Conform means "to make similar in form, nature, or character; to bring into agreement, correspondence, or harmony."

This is necessary when two different applications have two different representations of the same edit.

"Conform" could be changed to "update" if there were only one timeline that many applications viewed. Because the editorial timeline could track changes from version to version, the audio app can highlight the areas impacted since the last audio pass.

This gives you the option of getting a head start, letting a team work in parallel. It would certainly require some thought about where time would be spent most prudently.
