Postflux – project management for
Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects

Postflux logo

Postflux is an Adobe Premiere, After Effects (and shortly DaVinci Resolve) production and management tool. It’s suited to organisations with many creative operators, who need to easily manage their creative environment, production lifecycle and associated distributed workflows. Importantly, Postflux also provides automated protection for work-in-progress and finished content. 

Key features

  • Ensures Premiere and After Effects project-based workflows are reliable and consistent.

  • Makes moving, archiving, versioning or sharing of Premiere and After Effects projects quick and easy.

  • In-built scheduling to automate backups, for sharing work-in-progress, disaster recovery, etc.

  • Messaging service reports status and errors to admins/users.

Organise your Adobe workflows

Postflux scans and analyses disorganised source project files and resolves all associated media. It then moves the project and media to a specified location, creating a new fully self-contained and organised Premiere Pro or After Effects project. This makes exchanging projects simple and easy, plus allows the user to write to the most appropriate storage locations.

Greater production efficiency

Postflux simplifies and transforms the reliability of extended Premiere Pro and After Effects project-based workflows. Postflux not only checks for missing media but also ensures project integrity from the point of origination through to archiving, helping transform production efficiency.

Locate missing media

During the source project scanning and analysis process, Postflux identifies any missing or offline media and automatically notifies the user of the missing media and the last location in which it was seen, allowing users to rectify missing media at source before an incomplete project enters an extended workflow.

Postflux identifies missing or offline media

Postflux ensures project integrity from the point of origination through to archiving, allowing the user to write to the most appropriate storage locations, whether on high-performance storage, removable storage or cloud.

Full status notification

Based on a client server architecture, individual editors have their own Postflux user logins. Postflux contains an automated notification service so users can track processing and transfer status of key tasks, with all system activity logged at user and system level for diagnostics.

Cloud workflows

The concept of the Postflux versionable archive set becomes particularly valuable when combined with cloud workflows. With AWS S3, security and encryption keys can be used such that workflows can easily use the cloud as a secure integrated workflow step. This ensures an effective, efficient production process.

Work with local or cloud storage

Postflux understands the system’s storage locations, which could be on local storage for an individual user or on pre-determined shared or workgroup-specific network locations. The platform also includes a substantial storage plug-in library, including cloud storage. Permissions for these are set by the Postflux system admin, which also enables specific source and delivery workflows to be enforced. The system supports manual operations, task chaining and automated scheduling. Automated scheduling is ideal for automated overnight backups of all work-in-progress for operational protection and disaster recovery.

Exchange projects with full
versioning history

Postflux has two additional and important modes of exchanging projects. This can be as a single project archive – which also contains the complete, project version history and media – or as an archive set. An archive set contains multiple projects, complete with individual version histories and common media associated with all of these versions. This enables users to non-destructively collaborate on projects, sharing and versioning complex productions without duplicating any media. This is ideal for distributed collaborative production or perhaps for archiving a TV series with all its versions.
