Editors are always looking for tools that will help them manage multiple projects, regardless of whether they work on their own or as a part of some team.
The most pressing need is for software that will manage and organize projects, and visualize workflow of media that flows through the system.
This will also enable the editors to access the material from an archive, if needed at future date.
Helpful software packages are available for both Windows and Mac operating systems.
- A successful project is dependent upon having a solid organizational plan that includes a media movement workflow.
- Post Haste is a great program for creating silos or folders for each of your projects.
- Once you have all of your projects organized, back up all of your work to your hard drive using Seagate or an enterprise-grade HGST.
“Whether you work as a solo editor or part of a team, having a plan for organizing your projects – along with a workflow for moving media though your system – will lead to success in being able to find and restore material when needed at a future date.”
