Duplicating an Asset

Choosing to duplicate an asset creates a copy of the asset in Final Cut Server. If you want to create two distinct iterations of a media or project asset, you can easily do so by duplicating the asset.

To duplicate an asset
  1. Control-click the asset, then choose Duplicate from the shortcut menu.

    The Duplicate window appears.

  2. Choose a destination device from the Destination pop-up menu.

    If you want to place the duplicate file within the file structure of the device, click the Choose button and navigate to the appropriate location in the file browser.

    The destination file path appears in the Destination field.

  3. If you want to associate the new asset with a production, click the Choose button to the right of Production, select a production, and click Open.

    The production you selected appears in the “Associate with Production” field.

  4. If you want to transcode the asset, change the metadata set, or add metadata to the asset, click the Advanced Options disclosure triangle and make the necessary changes.

  5. Click the Duplicate button to duplicate the file and create a new asset.
