Avid MediaCentral

Avid MediaCentral is great for smaller projects that are one minute in length or less. This is why it has been used for digital ads, social media posts, and quick commercials that we put out on our TV network and YouTube channel.

pCloud

  • pCloud is quite suitable for most users. It does a lot well, such as file storage, being multi-platform, and decent user experience with folder organizing and moving files around.
  • Where it isn't at apt would be in workspaces to manage documents like Google Drive, and even dropbox would provide. The ability to manage google docs, sheets, etc. would be a significant plus.
  • The ability to use a workflow to store file shortcuts (don't like their star system quite as much)

  • I'm quite as impressed with it, although their faqs cover most current and pending issues. They take around 48 hours to respond to inquiries, while platforms like Gsuite have an instant agent and multiple contact options.
  • They do attend to you, and I do understand they're trying to keep a lean team and reduce operational costs. For a frequent user who uses cloud storage for multiple things such as website databases, etc. and has clients, it could be a tad frustrating.

Alternatives Considered

Avid MediaCentral

I’ve used Adobe Premiere Pro for longer videos, and while I like it almost as much, I have used and been trained on Avid since I was in college, so I am most comfortable with this software for editing purposes.

pCloud

  • pCloud makes the storage and retrieval process quite easy. With Google Drive, sure you can store lots of items, but the Linux functionality just wasn't there.
  • The same was the case with OneDrive, which I still use. However, it can be buggy and taxing on computer systems.
  • pClould is quite simple to use, flexible, and quite effective at what it does. And it's conveniently priced too.

pCloud

  • Less stress (since I can switch computers and not be limited by hard drive space yet having access to what I need.
  • Integrating Linux into our workflow (they take the cake there, and that makes life so much easier.
