Video: Collaborating with others using CS Review

In Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 we were introduced to CS Review, a powerful collaboration tool. CS5.5 takes it a step further, we have new export settings to quickly encode sequences or clips, and now we can make editing choices right in the Timeline. So as you can see down in my sequence, I have a sequence called CS Review, I've got three clips; we'll just play a couple of seconds. (video playing) And we'll scroll ahead; I need to send this sequence over to my producer for review.

Collaborating with others using CS Review

In Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 we were introduced to CS Review, a powerful collaboration tool. CS5.5 takes it a step further, we have new export settings to quickly encode sequences or clips, and now we can make editing choices right in the Timeline. So as you can see down in my sequence, I have a sequence called CS Review, I've got three clips; we'll just play a couple of seconds. (video playing) And we'll scroll ahead; I need to send this sequence over to my producer for review.

I go up to the right-hand corner, choose CS Live, I'll open up the CS Live dialog box, it says, Hello David, but if you are not signed in you're going to need to Sign In right here. You'll need a free account, so will the person that is doing the reviewing, but that's not a big deal. Go down to the CS Review tab and we're going to click on Create New Review. This opens up the new CS Review dialog box, and I'm going to create a new review, I'm going to call this CS Review_001.

It's going to save up to my workspace which is on the Adobe cloud, and I want to definitely add my active sequence to the review, I'm going to click OK. Now this opens the CS Review Export Settings dialog box, where I have the choice to change from Source Range of Work Area, I can go into Entire Sequence, or I can make a Custom range, we're going to stick with the Work Area. We also want to export the audio. In the Preset Area we have choices from Low to High, 1 megabits/second up to 2 Megabits/second, we're going to stick with 1 and keep the file size low, and we'll click Export.

And it's going to Encode and then send our review up to the Adobe cloud. Now this is complete right here, I can see I have a link that I can click on and see my review. So I'll click on that, which will open up a Browser at Acrobat.com, and here is my project. So right-away I can play, I can forward, but I need to have my producer to take a look at that.

So I'm going to go down here, click on Share File>Share it with individuals, I'll type-in his email, I am going to ask him, Please take a look at this, and I'm going to click Share. Before I do that I also have an opportunity to make them a co-author or a reviewer. Co-author has more editing features, we're going to keep him as a Reviewer, and we'll click Share. As you can see I sent him a file and it's telling me that he's now viewing the review, so let's wait for his comments.

Additionally, I can go right here and add my own comments. So let's say right here I might write Cool sunglasses, and click Save. I now have a comment called Cool sunglasses at 11:17 in the time-code, here's one for my producer about some noise in the audio. If I click the Jump To button right here I see that it takes me to the exact spot of where the audio problem is.

I can also reply back to him, 'We will fix this', and click Save. And here's another nice dissolve down here, if I click Jump To, it takes me to the dissolve. So with all the reviews done, I'm ready to do my fixes. I can export this as a PDF file. Now I don't want to go to my Workspace right now on the Adobe cloud, I just want to save it onto my Desktop, so I'm going to click My computer and we're just going to export it.

I am going this same file name, save it to my Desktop and click OK. The PDF is now exported, I'm going to click OK, and I'm going to minimize my Browser and the Premier Pro. Here on the Desktop is my review, let me double-click on the PDF, as you can see I've got a screenshot of the clip, I scroll down, it tells me the date and time, the first comment for my producer about the noise, it tells me exactly where the time-code is, it shows my reply.

I scroll down a little bit further, here is my other comment I made on his Cool sunglasses with a screenshot and the time-code, I'll scroll down a little bit more, here's my producer's comment about the dissolve with the time-code, pretty cool stuff but not as cool as this, let's go back into Premiere. In my CS Review dialog box, I'm going to click on this panel to open my review. Here are all my comments and let's take a look at where there was noise, and let me just move my Playhead a little bit.

Let me click on this brings up a screenshot of where there was noise. Now if I go to Go to Comment, it's going to take me to the exact time-code of where my producer had a comment. I can make fixes right there on the spot. If I go down to the other comment he made, shows me the dissolve, and when I click on Go to Comment I'm back at the dissolve. So he could have said, I don't like this dissolve or let's make it more opaque, et cetera, and I'm right there to change it. So as you can see CS Review is a powerful collaboration tool, you need to make fixes, send notes to producers, or your clients, you're able to do that on-the-fly and it's free.
