Does using a collaborative library in Bridge mean you must use Adobe Cloud storage?

If I want to create a Team/Collaborative Library in Bridge, does that mean all of the assets in that Library have to live on Creative Cloud storage? My company uses LucidLink for cloud storage – we have terabytes upon terabytes of media.

 

I was hoping to use the Team Library in Bridge as a metadata manager and organizer of these assets, so that the keywords/metadata/etc of our vast media library is the same for all of us. In the how-to Adobe implied that to do this the assets in the Team Library will live on their cloud storage. I only have 100GB of Creative Cloud storage – nowhere near enough, so was disheartened by this. 

 

Can anybody speak to this? Does a Team Library necessitate the files referenced by that Library to live on Creative Cloud storage?

Using Libraries means, yes, using Adobe storage. Bridge doesn't play well with cloud services in general, so you may not get good results using a third-party cloud storage provider.

Bridge was designed for the single user and adding the Adobe Cloud is rather a big achievement for Adobe. (Plus, it's linking you 

 

The good news is that you can download Bridge for free* and try it. Give it a good workout and if it works, great. If not, no money is lost.

 

When obtaining the free version, you do not have Adobe Camera Raw, nor do you have direct links to Adobe products (If you already have Adobe products, you already have access to Bridge.
