Watch: Ci for Productions workflows
The Ci panel offers an integrated view for Adobe Premiere users to interact with their files in Sony’s cloud-based service, Ci Workspace. From within the Premiere interface, users can seamlessly import files (or proxies) from Ci Workspace to their Premiere project bin, render completed edits using a default or custom encoding profile and then upload to Ci Workspace for review, collaboration and share without ever leaving the Premiere environment. Finished projects can be uploaded directly to Ci where they can be safely archived for future use.
