Dynamic Link on Multiple Machines.

Tags: #dynamic_link #multi_machines

Hi Community,

 

i would like to have the possibilty to send a clip from premiere to after effects (CS6), to edit it.

If i dynamic link it on one machine, it works perfectly.

Now we have several macpros in our company and while the editor is cutting a scene, i would like to work on a shot on a different machine.

I couldnt really get it working properly, sometimes it updates, sometimes not.

 

Is there a way to make it work?

 

 

We are running the Production Premium CS6 on several MacPros currently with MacOSX 10.6.8. The machines are linked via glasfibre to a RAID where my testfiles are located.

    I don't think Dynamic Link will be the best option in this case.  Open the clip in AE independently, work on it, then export out an Intermediate for loading into PP.

    This is for Premiere Pro, but I think the idea is also true for After Effects

     

    No current version of Premiere works properly, if at all, over a network

    -you may NOT "map" your My Documents folder to a network drive

    -you MUST give all users administrator accounts to use Premiere

    -you MAY also need to... http://forums.adobe.com/thread/969395

    -a work around, of sorts http://forums.adobe.com/thread/957523

    -and not on a "domain" http://forums.adobe.com/thread/858977

     

    Adobe Anywhere http://forums.adobe.com/message/4682127 is the fix... someday

    Those are all some pretty serious issues to working with this tool in a workgroup. We hope that Adobe is seeing these as issues that larger teams need to address.

     

    Apparently the "my docs" folder is storing some key issues. I moved my docs to another larger drive and now I get an error message whenever I start Adobe, and all my customized lists seem to be gone. I can work around it but it's frustrating. There is nothing in the program that points to C:\My Documents that I can even find.

     

    My guess is that the latency over a network is not what the underlying protocol of dynamic linking is able to handle. Only a guess though. If true, it's sort of a shame in this age of 100 GB ethernet.

     

    And it's hard to understand why Adobe needs to have admin privs on the box. I mean, UNIX had solved this stuff over a decade ago, and Windows certainly is now at a place where you should be able to operate in Adobe without giving the user full access to screw up the box. I mean, what is the issue that admin is fixing for them?

    I disagree.  It's almost certainly the current Windows security model which 'forces' the use of an Admin account (or at least, often helps things run smoother.)

    Can you help me understand why you say that? Specifically what in the Windows security model is forcing users of applications to have to be logged in as an admin account? That was true in the days of XP but that has not been true (that I'm aware of) since at least Vista, on the desktop. Am I missing something that Adobe requires that other apps don't?

    There are certain file and folders that can only be used with elevated privileges.  This is part of what UAC does, prevent programs from gaining access without user permission.  The fewer permissions your user account has, the more files and folders become 'off limits' to programs.
