Remote Editing: How To Optimise Your Cloud Editing Workflow

Overcast MAX #7: Max Editor

Remote editing is now a reality for most film and video editors.

The good news is that pro film/video editing software operates on domestic computers. In fact, there are so many choices of professional edit suites available to editors that it can be difficult to choose between them.

But the craft of editing is the same: view, assemble, cut, pace, review, re-cut, trim, grade, output.

An editor’s remit can be to create a unique style for an audio-visual project, but more often than not their job is to make the footage flow seamlessly so that viewers don’t notice the picture cuts. In the latter case, their brilliance can go unnoticed but it is invaluable to the final film or video.

Work processes have changed, though, due to the coronavirus pandemic. It’s no longer advisable for the director, producer or funders to visit the cutting room to give feedback on edits. So, a remote editing solution is needed.

Max Editor — a tool for remote editing

A cloud-based video management platform is the secret ingredient to effortless, efficient film/video collaboration.

Through Overcast, your team members can quickly locate clips through AI (artificial intelligence) search. Stakeholders can efficiently review and approve edits, leaving time-stamped comments on videos. Editors (or even non-technical peeps) can easily output their work in multiple formats at the touch of a button. 

Max Editor is one of our next-generation cloud applications for production, collaboration, storage and distribution of film and video content.

The best thing is that it integrates with an editor’s preferred editing software while also allowing them to benefit from the collaboration and management of cloud workflows.

Benefits of Max Editor

Whether you edit with Adobe Premiere Pro or Avid, you can manage the integration of your home/office editing workflows with the cloud through a single panel.

You can use simple tools to clip content from rushes, choose the best thumbnail, or use templates for resizing images for social, posters, etc.

Secure Collaboration

It’s easy to collaborate with colleagues, clients, stakeholders and others: just use secure links directly from our Adobe Panel or Avid Collaboration without having to download any content.

Speed to market is a concern for creators, but you can ease the pressure on editors, designers and engineers by allowing less-technical personnel to create video clips and reformat images with automated templates.

Enterprise Video Strategy: Scaling and Expanding

Live streaming became one of the most popular uses of video during the pandemic as enterprises needed to communicate with external stakeholders and also employees who were working from home.

In 2022 the popularity of this form of mass communication is not waning at all.

Video podcasting is also on the increase. Use cases include communicating with customers, marketing, sales, and training.

Video Now Main Form of Content For Enterprises

“Video is now poised to become the main form of content that’s digested in the enterprise. The huge surge in video meetings was the first wave in the shift to the visual enterprise. The second wave that is arriving now and in 2022 is about the need to organise, optimise, and deliver visual content to users.” — Aragon Research Globe for Enterprise Video, 2022.

This demonstrates the need for providers to step forward with innovative technology that enables enterprises to create, manage and distribute video content. The key focus for enterprises is on customer experience and employee engagement.

The Role of Video in Digital Transformation

In 2020 workplaces as we knew them experienced massive unexpected disruption.

Enterprises found themselves faces with a need for rapid digital transformation when the pandemic necessitated employees to work remotely. Suddenly, colleagues and managers were not in the same room to share information or collaborate on team projects.

This led to much upheaval among workforces. However, a magic pill to cure those ills was close at hand: video!

Influencers With A Cause

Social media activism creates opportunities for grassroots movements to evolve and expand. Some of the best-known examples are the Ice Bucket Challenge, #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, which have all involved successful social media movements.

So, how do creators and influencers with a cause go about making a difference?

James Dean was a rebel without a cause, but nowadays social causes are top of mind for creators, according to a study by Adobe.

Does Being A Creator Make You Happy?

The words ‘social media’ and ‘mental health’ are not always happy bedfellows, so it’s a legitimate question to ask, “Does being a creator make you happy?”

It takes time and effort to be create content, distribute it, and build a community, so what impact does all of that effort have on a creator’s mental health?

Adobe’s ‘Creators In The Creator Economy’ global study shows that creative people are happy people!
