Set a Custom Focus Point in DAT

  • Updated

Sometimes the focus point that is set in the DAM may not be suitable for the transformation you want to create. Avoid uploading the same asset multiple times to set different focus points as DAT allows you to set up a custom focus point in the Asset Detail View. This won't override the main focus point set in the DAM

Who can create a focus point in DAT?
