still, video files for editing are huge, and in each project you will have
several. taking upwards of 4GB for media files alone in git is kind of a
dumb thing to do when there are other much lighter ways to convey the same
data and also video hosts which will hold raw footage (also other means of
transfering large files peer-to-peer, such as soulseek or btsync). there
isn't a need to upload and update raw footage or rendered edited footage --
anybody with access to the same sources for the starting footage can
retrieve said footage (or a proxy) and load an EDL to have the project live
on their own system -- this carries the added benefit that each person
spends less time rendering updated versions of a project, saving hours of
precious time and allowing for a quicker update. there is no benefit to
including binary video files into a versioning system.
