By using LucidLink it is possible to access, edit and collaborate on Adobe Premiere projects while storing data on cloud object storage. LucidLink is a distributed file system that splits the data and metadata layers, with advanced features such as streaming, prefetching and simultaneous user access. When accessing a video asset stored in a LucidLink Filespace only the data that is needed is downloaded, and if assets are altered only changed blocks are uploaded.


To take advantage of the streaming capabilities built into LucidLink, it may be necessary to disable 'Automatic audio waveform generation' in Adobe Premiere. If enabled, Adobe will pre-read all video assets to draw audio wave forms on the screen. This negates the utility of streaming on-demand. Note that when disabled, audio wave forms will still be drawn upon specific video segment playback. 



A more detailed example of using Adobe Premiere with LucidLink and Wasabi is available, which discusses LucidLink installation, config and joint use cases, whilst using Wasabi Hot Storage.
