Views for Assets and Productions Panes

The Assets and Productions panes can be displayed as lists or thumbnails. You can change the view by clicking the Thumbnail View button or List View button.

Figure. Thumbnail View and List View buttons in the Final Cut Server main window.

Thumbnails View

Thumbnails view displays a thumbnail image of the assets or productions. The thumbnail image can be a frame from the video file that was uploaded, the graphics or image file that was uploaded, or an icon representing the type of asset or production. Thumbnails view is useful when you want to browse a number of assets or productions in a compact format without other information.

List View

List view displays the assets or productions titles and other metadata in columns. This view is useful when you want to view asset or production information or sort by any field.
