I am a contributing author over at MixingLight.com, a colorist's subscription website. Where remote work and moving tons of files is a daioy discussion on their Slack.

 

There's all sorts of ways, different software and software/hardware options, so many I can't keep track of all the ones they talk about. A comon one for editing that I've heard of for similar situations is distributing low-res proxies of the b-roll. When the editiors actually use it, and it's accepted ... then they get the original full-res file from the central supply. That way only a small amount of media is sent to everyone.

A lot of useful info over at MixingLight.

 

I'm sure I am oversimplifying it but so far it looks like the best bet is:

  • Get a decent NAS/RAID and plug it into our [1G/10G] office network.
  • Offload all footage to the NAS//RAID.
  • Use Bridge to add keywords to our footage.
  • Use Media Encoder to create proxies of our footage.
  • Search footage via Bridge.
  • Remotely download proxies and edit.
  • Relink to full-res for export.

 

Thoughts? Real-World experiences?

That looks to be a very solid workflow. Bridge was ignored by Adobe for years and they finally started adding some of the capabilities that so many in both stills and video post needed.
