    Working with Synced Projects and Avid ISIS


    is it possible to create and use Interplay Synced Projects on an shared Avid ISIS drive?

    A synced project consists of an Avid editing project on your local machine and an Interplay synced project, which consists of a folder hierarchy matching folders and bins in your local project. By default, you create a local project in a folder on your local machine called Avid Synced Projects, which is the same folder as your Avid Shared Projects. Interplay synced projects are created in a root-lever folder called Synced Projects. As you create local projects, folders and bins, you also create corresponding Interplay Folders.

    I was warned that working with synced projects loses the 'locked bin' functionality. But as you can only make Synced rojects on a local machine (in the Public-folder), that makes this remark irrelevant, isn't it? 

    Thank you,

    Re: Working with Synced Projects and Avid ISIS

    A synced project is very different from a project stored on ISIS. A backup of the project is saved locally, but you should not think of this as the actual project.

    The Project is a folder in Interplay and the bins are folders in that folder. The bins in the project act the same as an Interplay Folder in that any user with sufficient privileges can read/write to it. This allows non-Media Composer and MC clients to add/delete metadata and clips directly to what an editor sees as a bin.

    It lifts the locked bin restriction.

    For example, Media Central | UX can log footage and play a sequence in a "bin" while the editor is working. [view my complete system specs]
