Using the Import Asset Feature
You can import assets directly from within the Assets tab by using the Import button or
by using the Import Asset icon in the toolbar. You can import single assets, multiple
assets, or entire folders of assets.
Note: The “Find matching audio when dragging” setting in the Track pane of
DVD Studio Pro Preferences does not apply when you use the Import Asset dialog. Only
the files you select are imported into the Assets tab.
To import assets from within the Assets tab
Select the folder in the Assets tab that you want to import the assets into (if applicable).
Open the Import Asset dialog by doing one of the following:
• Choose File > Import > Asset (or press Command-Shift-I).
• Control-click the folder or an empty area of the Assets tab, then choose Import from
the shortcut menu.
• Click the Import button in the Assets tab.
• Click Import Asset in the toolbar.
• Double-click an empty area of the Assets tab.
Locate the assets or folder to be imported, then click Open.
The assets are imported into the Assets tab. If you select a folder, the folder and all
recognized asset files in it are added to the Assets tab. Any subfolders within the imported
folder are also imported. A message appears if the folder contains assets that are not
supported by DVD Studio Pro.
Note: An asset cannot be imported more than once, and it can only appear once in the
Assets tab. However, any asset in the Assets tab can be used multiple times in a project.
