Associating Assets with Productions During Upload
You can use productions to gather together assets that already exist in your catalog, especially as you begin work. This will help you and your collaborators to focus on just the assets that are needed to get the job done.
Associating the assets of uploaded files to productions has been mentioned in Lessons 2 and 3. Here we’ll look more closely at the functions of the specific buttons in the Upload window.
In the Upload window, click Choose, to the right of Associate with Production.
A separate Find and Select window will open, displaying your existing productions. Find the production with which you wish to associate the asset(s) and click Open. This will make sure the newly uploaded asset(s) will be associated with the production in the catalog.
If no production exists yet, you can click the Create button to make a new one, which we’ll explain in the next section, “Creating Productions.”
Click Open and your choice will appear back in the Upload window. If you made a mistake, there is a button provided to clear the field.
After upload, you will see all of your uploaded files’ assets within the production’s info window. (See the “Viewing Production Details” section, later in this lesson.)
