====== StudioLine Digital Asset Management ====== Through the StudioLine add-on module, Digital Asset Management, you can manage almost any video or file format in your archive. If you purchase the [[:addon_digitalxpress:|add-on module DigitalXpress]], the Digital Asset Management is included. Similar to images, you can describe and assign values to your data formats through the StudioLine Asset Manager. The media are stored in the StudioLine database. Depending on your copy settings, copies or an alias of the original file is created. The files can be searched through the usual StudioLine 'search' function. The archived data can be easily retrieved from StudioLine through a double-click for use in an external program. The existing image Export- and Backup functions (for example of Backup on DVD) are also supported for the Asset Manager file types. Through the convenient 'StudioLine Asset Manager' window you can specify which file formats can be archived as digital assets. You identify the format through its extension. In the left-hand panel of the StudioLine Asset Manager window, is a list of the file formats you have specifically included. Standard file formats like jpeg and tiff don't need to added. StudioLine users who have purchased the DigitalXpress module can use the StudioLine Asset Manager to exchange a file of any format through DigitalXpress or other FTP-server. ===== Adding New Formats to your Archive ===== Go to 'Manage Asset Filetypes' under the Preferences menu Under 'New Filetype," enter in your desired format in the file extension format. (Be sure to use the **exact** lettering of the file extension) Click the arrow button to the left of the entry box. The new filetype will appear in the column on the left panel as one of the formats supported in your database. You can enter in as many formats as you like. If a format is already supported, a message will pop up indicating as such. ===== To remove File Formats ===== * Go to 'Manage Asset Filetypes' under the Preferences menu * Select the format in the left-hand pane * Click the bottom arrow button to place it in the "Not Selected" column * Click on 'ok' Should you change your mind, you can easily replace the file type back in the "Selected" section with the arrow buttons.
