Media: studio wide view for media in projects

Postby quang.tran » October 5th, 2017, 10:09 pm

Is there a way to list all media in all projects and filter them, for example by location or by excluding media, which have been returned to client? We're receiving a lot of harddrives on a per project base and usually need to keep them some weeks after project has been finished. Our expectation would have been, that the studio view of media is listing all media in projects. Mostly IT and postproduction coordinators from our clients call months after production, looking for harddrive No. XY according to their inventory system. It would be more than useful to be able to look that up in all projects and see the detailed history of it on our side.

Hi,

This feature has been requested before and will be something we are adding to the Studio wide view.

Thank you,
Andrew

That's really good to hear. Can we expect it to be a more short or midterm update?

This should come in a relatively short-term update. I don't have an exact time frame on this feature at the moment but it's coming soon.

Nice. One question came up today, as we talked about this:
How would you handle the media for a project, if it's being archived?
Usually we keep the rushes a while, after the project is finished. So it would be useful, to still see checked in media from archived projects in studio view for all media.

Jobs in NIM are always available and not meant to be deleted from the system so we can track all historical information related to a project. We can include the job status for all job related media, so you would be able to filter out active projects based on the current status.
