Sharing Assets: Adobe CS Production Premium’s Unique Workflow

Editing & Post on PVC by Jeff Sengstack

A case where the whole is indeed greater than the sum of its parts. When you look at Adobe CS Production Premium’s video production tools - Premiere Pro, After Effects, Encore, Audition, and Photoshop - many if not all could be considered industry leaders in their own right. But it’s how they share assets that makes the suite such a powerful performer.

Applications in Adobe CS Production Premium share assets in several ways. The goal? To save you time, reduce your work load, and ensure your assets retain their original quality throughout the video production process.Advertisement

Linking assets and projects dynamically

Adobe Dynamic Link is a feature of Adobe Production Premium and Master Collection (it is not available in applications purchased separately). You use it to create links between projects, sequences and assets in Premiere Pro, After Effects and Encore. Creating dynamic links means you don’t have to render and import when moving assets between applications.

For example, instead of rendering an After Effects comp and then importing it into Premiere Pro, you can link to the After Effects comp from within Premiere Pro by choosing File > Adobe Dynamic Link > Import After Effects Composition (above). The linked comp shows up as an asset in the Project panel (right). You can add it to a sequence, trim it and apply effects to it. If you scrub through it or play it, it will play just as it would in After Effects. read more...
