Edit Bridge enables the seamless integration of Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects in an Avid Interplay environment. In this way, Edit Bridge makes it possible to edit Interplay content directly in Adobe Premiere Pro or After Effects. Users can search Avid Interplay from within the Premiere Pro or After Effects interface, view thumbnails, find media and select for editing. Content in the correct codec is streamed direct to Premiere Pro or After Effects for immediate editing, while other content is copied and re-wrapped. Delivery of the completed story back to Avid ISIS is achieved with Interplay “Check In.” Edit Bridge contains two Custom Panels, which have been developed specifically for Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, allowing the control of the workflow directly from the Premiere Pro user interface. Panels are add-on extension components that run inside the Premiere Pro application and enable users to source content from Interplay by browsing and searching the Interplay system within the panel that trigger an import into Premiere Pro. Users can then use a second panel to export their content and metadata from Premiere Pro back into the Avid Interplay Production Asset Management system.
Users who will benefit from accessing this new functionality, include Adobe Premiere Pro and Media Composer editors wishing to collaborate on a project; those using Adobe Prelude® CC as an ingest tool or for quality assurance for Avid Interplay/ISIS; those using Adobe After Effects to complete motion graphics for projects edited on Avid Media Composer, plus facilities who wish to continue to use Avid Interplay/ISIS for their tier one edit storage and MAM but wish to switch to Adobe Premiere Pro for editing.
