What is a Collection and how can we create one?

A Collection is a group of inter related projects (eMAM project, Premiere project, InDesign project, After Effects project). Editors can club all the inter related projects and put it under a Collection for easy access of contents in the project. Collections created in the eMAM Director interface are also visible under the eMAM Premiere Panel.

You can simply drag and drop assets to the projects under a Collection however, you cannot add asset to a Collection. You can easily move any projects to a collection using "move to collection" and "paste project" options.


To create a Collection, click on the Project widget drop-down menu and select Add Collection. Enter Collection name and description and click on Add button.

Collection can be edited, deleted and new projects can be added under a Collection.
