Hi

I'm new to Adobe CC, I have used Adobe products over the years but i'm still confused on how the cloud really works.

I have a Desktop PC at home and a Macbook. I'm working on a project using PP on the Desktop but I would like to continue to work on it when I'm out with the Macbook.

I've been currently doing it the old fashioned way, downloading all files on a hard drive and moving it between both computers, but is there a way do just do this with using an internet connection and if so how do I do it?

Set the hard drive that you’re using for all of your files as the location for your Premiere Pro project file and you’re good to go.  Mostly.

I’ve found it helpful to create a folder on the drive for the entire project (meaning everything for this edit, not just the PR project file) and then create at least three sub-folders: Source Footage, Project Files, Exports.

You probably already have the drive formatted as ExFAT for cros–platform use, but you could also go with NTFS is you have Paragon NTFS for Mac installed on your MacBook Pro or HFS+ if you have MacDrive for Windows on your Windows desktop.

Make sure that you have the same version of Premiere Pro on any computer that you‘re using (two can be logged into your Adobe ID at a time regardless of OS).

As far as the cloud part goes, you can set your Auto-Save location to your Creative Cloud storage, your Premiere Pro settings can sync to it, and you can access files stored in your Creative Cloud storage (if you’re using it) via the Libraries tab in Premiere Pro.  These are all optional.

Hi,

I've tried doing that via a team project, but... one of my files is over 1GB and have been unable to save it into a Library in Creative Cloud storage. Same for an audio file, apparently not yet supported.
Am I doing something wrong?

I'd seriously recommend you test your workflow BEFORE going too deep down the rabbit hole.  Haven't tried this with Premiere, but I once brought a davinci resolve project from the mac into a windows house and reconnecting the media was a nightmare...  that said, premiere has a much more robust relink process than resolve so maybe it won't be a serious probelm.

Thanks for posting this y'all - my mind is kinda blown right now.  A Premiere project I'd work on with a PC (disks in EXFAT) just opened, seemingly seemlessly in Premiere on a MAC.

 

Like, no blips no nothing...  Is this real life?  Or just fantasy?

 

Wow.

it's reality.  I work on both a windows machine and a couple of macs and only have minor issues moving projects between them.   I have the Paragon program installed on the windows machine so it can read macosextended drives.  Generally, I have to relink at least some of the files when moving between platforms, but usually if I relink one file, the rest reconnect automatically.  There do seem to be consistent issues with font compatibility but I can live with that.
