If you're working with tons of files and different types of files and you have to keep them sorted out and be able to tell the differences within the files...this is the best option for you. It will make your life so much easier being able to preview everything quickly while seeing the small details. I do know that some photographers are really happy with how Lightroom catalogs their images, but I think for anyone doing major compositing or video work, Bridge is hands down the way to go. It just saves you so much time and headaches.

The Avid eco-system is extremely reliable. There are multiple pieces working together to transcode, index, and archive media. Needing minimal maintenance and upgrades. Avid support is extensive and can be reached 24/7 at any time of the year. I recommend this product to any production team that wants a long term, reliable asset manager

  • The same media can be imported more than once by multiple users, creating duplicates. A way for the user to be prompted that this media already exists before the import.

Final Cut Server was a mess and wasn't really supported by Apple anymore when we were last using it. Avid has good support and we know they're going to be around and support their products. It's also just a better fit for our workflow in terms of producing content, as well as archival and storage solutions.

Return on Investment
Adobe
  • It's saved me probably thousands of hours at this point. I used to spend so much time looking for different files and now I can find them all quickly.
  • I can now decide which are the 15 images I will deliver from a portrait session within 10 minutes. It used to take me around an hour to open them each up and start deciding.
  • I quit negatively speaking to myself for misnaming files and then never being able to find them.
  • I only complain about Adobe Bridge when it doesn't work with a firewall and I have to turn it off or restart my computer.
