Upload Additional Files to Existing Assetes

  • Updated

You can upload supporting files that contain extra information as an Additional File to an existing asset. Additional files can be uploaded to an existing asset to give more detailed or supporting (background) information about the asset. For example, a waiver for the people who have participated in your video asset, a contract from an agency, a spreadsheet with detailed figures about your presentation, or a release form from a photographer.

 

Note

The maximum allowed file size for an additional file is 4GB.

Users with the following permissions can upload additional files:

Delete Additional Files

  1. Open the asset with the additional file you want to delete.

  3. Click thetrash.png button next to the additional file you want to delete.

Alternative Options to Additional Files:

If you would like to update the original file of an asset without having to tag the asset from scratch, you might want to upload your updated file as a new version instead.

If you want to add a new download option for users with specific customizations, such as crop or format, you might want to upload your modified file as a manual derivative instead.

Note

Manual derivatives cannot be exposed via API and will not be available in any integration.

You may want to use the related assets functionality to relate assets that have been uploaded to the Asset Bank with something in common.
