From Runner How-To Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Users can upload individual assets and folder packages to Runner by two methods: Aspera or Accelerated Upload. Depending on the user's network connection, this determines which upload method is best for uploading assets to Runner. The following section describes the process of uploading a folder package to Runner.

Getting Started


Step 1

Open the Upload Wizard by clicking 'Upload' in the Runner navigation bar.


Step 2

Click the 'Add Folders' button to add your folder package or drag and drop your folder into the space labeled 'Drag Files Here.'
