What are the BEST practice's for a mixed platform (MACs/PCs) workflow?
I may have an opportunity to work with a MAC based director and I am PC based. We both use CC 2015.
Are MOV files interchangeable across platforms and are aeg, prprog & PSD files interchangeable? I have spent 30+ years in a PC environment and have no experience with cross platform workflows.
Thank you.

My team is cross-platform. The only sticky point we have is that we can read, but not write, ProRes on PCs. Otherwise, we have no trouble collaborating with the same set of Adobe project files.

I second Walter.
My freelance work is done on both Mac and PC. PC's in my home studio, MacBooks for the road and I share files between the two OSs all the time. No issues.
