check out Project>Project Manager.
Once you both have the same media / source files , it's as simple as sending the project file (preferably with a version number ;-) )
...you could also use an EDL (Edit Decision List) workflow to share jsut the edits you made, but you'd still need to have the same source files in that case.
AND, in the not-too-distant future...
But will this be available for CS6 or only with an upcoming upgrade?
N/A for CS6.
I do not often actually share my Projects, but I do migrate them often, between my laptop and my workstation.
In my case, I start each Project on a FW-800 external HDD (the unique drive letter has been set to the same, in the OS of each computer - watch out for this "gottcha"), and just move the external back and forth. I have Copies of all of my Assets in the Project folder structure, and also have my Scratch Disks located there too. To date, I have never had any issues.
Thanks guys!. This was really helpful.
....something to look forward to in 2013!!
In the meantime it's good that Passport Drives are really small
That's actually a relink scenario which you've kept problem-free by just keeping the drive referenceconsistent for both systems, which is what I do too. (actually, I keep two duplicate hard drives and copy the main to the secondary once or twice a week)
A lot of users are running into prblems when they move media and project around in a more organic way and try to relink stuff. There are an endless number of relink scenarios, but if you keep everything as encapsutlated (for lack of a better term) as possible, you should be able to move things around pretty easily. Project manager helps a lot, but it doesnt work too well for trimming with most of the newer HD media types.
How do you share work in progress in CS6 with oither editors?
N/A for CS6.
it's a nice prospect _but for the specific question it's useful to go with EDL or Project files.
And yeah, Bill, matching drive letters is crucial for smooth, worry-free migration and collaboration!
