VCM Save and Load Export Queue

Previous Next  Print this Topic

Being able to save the clip selections that are in the Export Queue is a very useful feature of the Video Content Manager. After searching for video and sending the clips to the Export Queue, you have the option to save the selections to a .xdl file (Export Decision List). Once they have been saved to a file, you can then share the file or load the Export Queue at a later time with the file of saved selections. This means any work in progress can be saved for later use and it allows multiple users to use the same clip selections even though they are working on different machines.

1.Click File > Export Queue > Save as. This will open the Save Export Decision List window.
