Adding Assets to Productions

Besides associating assets with productions during upload, you can manually add assets to productions by simply dragging them from a search results window and dropping them into the Assets pane of a specific production info window.

To make dragging and dropping easier, you can create a separate window by selecting New Workspace from the Window pull-down menu in the upper-left corner of the main application window.

With two windows open, you can set one to the asset pane and the other to production pane. Using this method, you can drag a series of assets directly onto the icon for a production. The icon becomes highlighted in blue to indicate that the assets will be added to that production.

If you wish to upload, catalog, and associate new files directly into a production, you can do so by simply dragging and dropping the files directly from the Finder, the desktop, or from a connected volume onto a production’s icon or into its asset pane in the info window.

You can also Control-click an asset and choose New Production from Selection from the asset shortcut menu.

Finally, you can select a series of assets and click the New Production from Selection button in the Toolbar.

In these last two examples, you will be taken to a New Production window, where you can create the production to which these assets will be associated.
