We have recently made the jump from FCP7 to PP CS6 and have a SAN based workflow. Today we were told that PP does not support SAN based workflow. Is this true? It just doesn't seem right that Adobe wouldn't support it because SAN is becoming the norm with post production these days.
Adobe's supported network environment is called Adobe Anywhere, and requires specific hardware. Outside of that, there could be issues and the general recommendation is to keep everything local.
