We’ve made an exciting update to your Editor Resources tab, located under Work in Progress.
Previously, this tab only linked to our external stock libraries, but now, we’ve included a powerful search tool that allows you to locate media from all four libraries at once, directly from the Edit Suite!
Watch How It Works:
Or Read about it here:
To access this new feature, you’ll need to have a project in the editing stage. If you open the project and click on the Editor Resources tab, you’ll see the new set up:
In the top left you’ll notice the “Keywords” box. Here you can search for any type of stock media assets from our libraries. Simply type in what you’re looking for, select either Audio, Video, or Graphic from the “Media Type” drop down menu, and hit “Search.” Depending on which media type you select, you’ll also see a series of optional filters in the middle of the tab. If you receive a large number of results, you can use the “Text Search” on the right side to search within your results.
From your search results, you’re also able to preview and download as many pieces of media as you’d like, and if you click on the star icon next to “Download,” it will instantly be added to your Favorites List. After favoriting a few assets, click the orange “Favorite” button to see everything you’ve favorited, regardless of the media type.
And that’s the basics!
Here are a few more tips to optimize your search:
When looking for music, try searching for the instruments you are looking for. Instrument data is embedded in each track’s meta-data, so this will help you find the specific music you need.
Many of the tracks are labeled based on their mood or genre. By searching things like “upbeat” or “simple,” you’ll find results that closely fit those feelings.
Keep in mind that your Favorites List is reset every time you leave and re-visit the editor site. Each project is so different, which is why we didn’t want to weigh your Favorites List down as you take on more and more work.
When previewing a file, note that you’ll see watermarks on any image or video assets. Upon download, the watermark will promptly be removed.
