Preproduction (Proof) Orders

Preproduction (proof) orders are helpful for studios that shoot film and for those that wish to track proofs that are due to go out or be returned.

Please note: Because we are continually updating our library of training videos as new versions of our software are released, this video will likely show an older or newer version of StudioPlus Spectra/myStratus than you have installed. Don't worry! The video will still give you a great overview of this feature.
