We have 2 suites and we sometimes work together on a common project utilising the same media.
If I want to use a sequence from the other suite I can easily import it.
The problem: it creates another folder with clips that only belong to the imported sequence.
The end result after a few imported sequences is that my final timeline has instances in it that
are from clips belonging to several different folders or bins even though the media is the same.
In summary... is there a way you can avoid having multiple clips of the same media in a project.
Makes for a very messy project when you have finished.
You've got multiple clips with the same name scattered everywhere.
I'm kind of hoping this type of media management will be vastly improved in CS6, whose main new 'feature' reeeeeally needs to be outstanding network collaboration with other editors working on the same project.
ahh... the cold harsh reality of the 2 words "Not yet".
Makes you really think hard about workflows.
