ELEMENTS systems natively support Avid Bin Locking, Premiere Pro project locking and can also host a DaVinci Resolve database, allowing for shared projects with bin and timeline locking in the world’s most popular colour grading software. Use Premiere Pro to continue editing projects started in the Media Library Roughcut Editor.
The files on your ELEMENTS system are stored in workspaces, and workspaces are grouped into productions. This structure helps to organise your content and increase efficiency in relation to permission management and archiving.
After logging in into the ELEMENTS Client using user credentials, only the workspaces that a user has permissions to view will be displayed. These can be mounted with a single click. For an additional level of security, two-factor authentication can be activated.
Add users or whole groups to workspace’s access permission list. If required, productions can have a default access group enabled, which will automatically be applied to every new workspace. A single mouse click can change access permissions to read-only.
Mounting parameters such as network protocols and Windows drive letter can be set for every workspace individually. Using the Workspace Template function allows you to populate new workspaces with pre-set files and folders, helping to keep your content organised. Optionally, soft and hard quotas help control the size of workspaces.
With ELEMENTS, Project Management becomes a lot easier, primarily because you can share media files natively, embracing virtually all non-linear editing and VFX applications, on Windows, macOS and Linux. Native support for Avid Bin Locking, Premiere Pro project locking and the ability to host a DaVinci Resolve database improve the efficiency of your workflows through project sharing.
No data shuffling anymore: Avid becomes part of the whole team
Until now projects involving both Avid and other NLE applications had to be managed in two separate file systems: Unity or NEXIS for the Avid projects and usually StorNext-based systems for all other applications. ELEMENTS offers a single, powerful platform for all your media workflows, no matter your NLE or VFX application choice.
With ELEMENTS, Project Management becomes a lot easier, as you can share media files natively, embracing virtually all non-linear editing and VFX applications, on Windows, macOS or Linux. Intuitive user interface makes managing and using the system easy, while at the same time providing all advanced settings that a power-user may require.
ELEMENTS helps Avid users avoid depending on single-purpose storage and puts a stop to those inefficient data shuffling processes to conform with the needs of your preferred NLE. Simply put: Avid becomes a part of the whole team.
Of course, ELEMENTS also allows users to work on the same project at the same time. The lock mechanism indicates who is working in which bin, enabling a user to edit a bin while other editors can still access the same files. You can grant access to groups or users while protecting the visibility of your shared storage.
ELEMENTS systems natively support Avid Bin Locking, Premiere Pro project locking and can also host a DaVinci Resolve database. No matter which of these industry-leading NLEs you decide to implement in your workflows next, you will always be able to enjoy all benefits of project sharing without needing to do any changes to your system.
