    after effects in the cloud: working directly from the cloud desktop folder?

    jamskof74 Level 1

      hi guys, just wondered if anyone had any experience in working directly from the cloud desktop folder?

      any pros or cons?

      thought it would be good to have an extra backup system and be able to work from another computer like my laptop instead of copying files around etc..

       

      any thoughts?

       

      thanks

          Why would anyone? Adobe's cloud storage is complete garbage and even if you were to use alternate systems like Dropbox you still have to wait until the files actually sync, which means that during that time you cannot safely load and save them without risking the files getting damaged. Conversely, once they are damaged and you turn on your other computer and they sync you end up with nothing useful at all because previous, potentially intact file versions get overwritten. Sorry, none of this makes any sense. I'd never entrust any critical work to any of these workflows beyond manually uploading a zipped collected version of the project at the end of the day, but strictly separate from the actual working files/ folders.
