Collaborate with Avid NEXIS | PRO and Third-Party Software, Part 1: Adobe Premiere Pro

In our new series “Collaborate with Avid NEXIS | PRO and Third-Party Software,” we’ll answer your questions on how to use third-party editing software with Avid NEXIS | PRO — Avid’s software-enabled storage solution.

This first episode will show you how to integrate Adobe Premiere Pro into a collaborative workflow with Avid NEXIS | PRO and axle Starter asset management software. Together, these tools offer real-time collaboration to help you and your team work together better and faster.

We’ll start by launching the Avid NEXIS client manager and mounting a couple of work spaces. From there, we’ll create and log some clips with axle, which we’ll be able to access in Premiere Pro. Then, after creating a new Premiere Pro project, stored on an Avid NEXIS work space, we’ll learn how one user can open a file and lock it while enabling other users to open the same file on a read-only basis.  And we’ll learn how to import clips and subclips created in axle, as well as utilize media from other projects stored on Avid NEXIS | PRO.

Find out more in the video clip below. And stay tuned for the next episode to find out how you can integrate Avid NEXIS | PRO with your editing software of choice to streamline your collaborative workflow.
