P2P File Transfer/Syncing without Cloud Storage
When using Team Projects in Premiere Pro it is often a pain in the butt to keep files synchronized on both editors machines.
For instance, say both editors start with the same basic footage and begin to collaborate on a team project and then one of them decides to make a Title using a font the other editor doesn't have. Or perhaps they photoshop an image that now the other editor doesn't have. Or they pull from a stock library and add that footage to the project, stock footage the other person now doesn't have.
Even just getting started on a Team Project often means remapping files due to the differences between file systems. So it would be great if you guys included or added a new program that allowed Peer to Peer file transfers and syncing.
This way one person could set up a team project, and then once the other person has accepted the request to collaborate the two editors could sync their files and everyone would be working with the same media with all the mapping already in place.
Then if someone adds a new piece of media they could just drop it into the projects folder on their own machine, click sync media and the new file will transfer to the other editor's machine (with permission of course)
I realize you can technically do this with Creative Cloud storage, but sometimes we work with editors who have no creative cloud storage and there really is no point of uploading files to Dropbox or Google Drive or ANY cloud storage system if they're not going to be needed long term.
For the moment me and my teammate have been using dewdrop and sharedrop to directly transfer files back and forth to each other without the need for cloud storage, but it would be nice if this sort of transfer feature was built into Premiere or at least as a separate app in the creative cloud suite.
If you could also make it super secure that would be amazing. But just the feature alone would be nice.

Wow, that looks hard. What's wrong with sharing a google drive / dropbox ? They are not there for long term storage I don't get your argument
