Post Production - Adobe

Key Code Media Knows Adobe

Adobe’s Creative Cloud is one of the most powerful suites of creative software available.  From logging in Prelude to editing and grading in Premiere Pro to graphics in Photoshop to visual effects in After Effects, to audio sweetening and repair in Audition, and all compressed by Adobe Media Encoder, there is no other one-stop shop for media creation than Adobe.  Due to this wide spectrum of software abilities, we’ve created best practices and efficiencies to get your systems and workflows optimized to their fullest extent.

This includes computer systems outfitted with the tools that Adobe needs to run as fast as possible.  Solid State drives and flash memory, faster RAM, screaming GPUs, and the ability to connect to shared storage solutions.

With the newer shared project functionality introduced by Adobe in Premiere Pro, your creatives can now edit, share, and collaborate without losing time due to media movement and lengthy imports and relinking.  This is where Key Code Media has pioneered the Adobe collaborative landscape, deploying local and remote collaboration solutions both facility-wide and outside of your facility, and across the country.

“The proxy workflow is one of the best features ever implemented inside Premiere Pro.  The ease in which you can create offline proxy media for your high res masters is dead simple, and makes the painful relinking process obsolete.”

Have you thought about…?

Are your systems fast enough to handle the formats you’re getting?  Are they optimized for best performance?

Team Projects or shared projects in Premiere Pro, both within your facility as well as remotely

Can your storage support the amount of video you need retain while at the same time giving your editors the throughput they need with newer codecs and formats?

Is your media backed-up? Offsite or in the cloud? Do you have a system to track the data?

Offloading intensive rendering can speed up your workflow.  Our experts can design a render solution for your needs.
