    I think the problem here is the just because YOU know that a sequence is shared, it doesn't mean the computer knows it is. There should be an explicit option to "link to existing source media" when importing any sequence. This however is fraught with potential pitfalls. Importing media with the sequence is the safest thing because it is linked to media that is know to be working. There are unfortunately too many instances I have encountered where supposedly duplicated media isn't a byte for byte duplicate, resulting crashing etc.
    The other thing to be reminded of is that Premiere doesn't play anything in real time, and the media cache info for an imported sequence may need to be rebuilt dynamically for the new system, unless one is using shared storage where everything is in one central location.

    If you use existing renders it's the same thing

    Hi Florian,

    while this is a rather critical and large change to the way the application works and will take some time to be implemented, we’ll definitely put this under consideration.

    There’s more than one solution to this problem, though.

    A good short term opportunity is to use the parallel install feature in the creative cloud application. It should help to at least take away some of the issues working with people on a different version of the application.

    Another thing worth keeping in mind is that you can install CC on two different machines (if you’re on an individual subscription). That gives you additional opportunity to keep different versions around for compatibility reasons.

    I’ll update the status of this request as we move along.

    If you have further thoughts on this matter, please keep them coming.

    Thanks
    Patrick

    If that is the case then is something wrong with the way your application works. The basic elements of a sequence, cuts, tracks basic transitions, should gracefully move from product version to product version. I wonder if you are tying properties of the clips to the sequence rather than applying them to the clips.

    Adobe is full of it! here is absolutely NO programmatic reason that Adobe projects must be locked to specific versions except for Adobe wanting to keep people locked into cloud subscriptions. An Adobe Project file is little more than an XML file. There is no functional reason that the XML data could not be parseable by any version of the AdobeCC apps while ignoring the upgraded or deprecated features. Media Composer has done this for years with graceful feature elimination between different versions. No one said it would be easy, but it would be considerably easier to program than the marginally useful bells and whistles that Adobe keeps foisting upon users to rationalize the continued subscription model.
