It’s no secret that today’s consumers watch more video on more platforms than ever before. To meet this exploding demand, production teams need collaborative workflows that turn out engaging content with incredible speed. That’s why we created Avid NEXIS | PRO. Software-enabled storage that helps production teams work faster together—regardless of what media-editing software they use.

Welcome back to our series: “Collaborate with Avid NEXIS | PRO and Third-Party Software.” Here, we show you how to use third-party editing software with Avid NEXIS | PRO shared storage. In part one of the series, we explored how to create a collaborative workflow with Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid NEXIS | PRO. Now, we’ll take a look at Apple Final Cut Pro X (FCP-X).

Editors groan about the fact that only one user can access a given Apple FCP-X library at a time. This makes collaboration a challenge. But in our second episode, you’ll learn how to integrate Final Cut Pro into an efficient team workflow with Avid NEXIS | PRO in just a few steps. Watch the video clip below to learn more.

    Haha! I don’t feel like a geek anymore. I’ve bee using Sync folders pro for a long time to sync the Avid media folders between 2 standalone systems (Can’t afford a Nexis pro for now). Truly a nice little piece of software. I keep the folders in sync and create exceptions for the database files. I keep 2 isolated projects with the same name on each machine and share the bins via Dropbox. It does work pretty well. I have to wait for some indexing once in a while of course. Far from being as efficient as shared storage with Avid project sharing, it’s a nice workaround for more intensive projects. I also invested in Axle software. A true life saver. Nexis Pro? Maybe next year…
