If you are looking for working solutions to deal with remote collaboration in these times, Kyno may be the solution you need. Due to the growing demand for remote collaboration, Lesspain Software has published the first part of a video series that demonstrates how Kyno can help with that. The 6 minutes video demonstrates an editorial collaboration workflow using Dropbox, Kyno and Adobe Premiere Pro, one of many options to collaborate using Kyno.
Working from home with Kyno
What’s interesting in this first part of a video series on Collaboration is that it represents a real-world example that is true to many of us: the director and editor are both working from home and don’t have a great Internet connection so they need to be careful with the bandwidth. They use a Dropbox account and a shared folder for their project and… well, you’ll have to watch the video to know how they manage. If you want to see the next videos, subscribe to the YouTube channel or visit Kyno’s website.
If the video published made you want to know more, download Kyno and give it a try. If you need more information, or if there’s anything else that the company can assist with, write and send an email to [email protected] and Lesspain Sofware will get back to you as soon as possible.
