Upload

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

Users can upload assets 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 Accelerated and Aspera Uploads.

Accelerated Upload

Accelerated Upload utilizes Multipart HTTP technology to segment your files into multiple parts and upload those parts simultaneously through your browser session. We recommend using Accelerated Upload if your network connection is stable and robust.

Pencil.jpg Note: Accelerated Upload is currently only supported on Chrome and can only be completed if the brower/window remains open during the upload process.

Step 3

Once you've selected accelerated upload type, drag and drop your assets into the queue into the space labeled 'Drag Files Here', or click the "Add Files" button to add your assets. Once your assets have been added, click the "Next" button. To remove an asset from the queue, press the corresponding X.png. After queueing all files, press ‘Next’.

Step 4

After adding your assets to the upload queue, select the folder(s) you want to add your asset(s) to by using theBubble empty 2.pngicon. TheBubble checked 2.pngicon indicates a successful selection. You can also expand folders using the Folder expand.png icon or collapse folders using the Folder collapse.png icon. Once you've selected the folder(s), click the "Upload" button.

Pencil.jpg Note: Your Favorite Folders will automatically be listed first at the top.

Pencil.jpg Note: A lighter shaded folder icon such as Folder blocked.png indicates you do not have permission to upload to that folder.

Step 5

While your assets are uploading, the "Manage" modal will appear. From this modal, you can proceed to tag the assets with metadata, update the assets' thumbnails, or check on the status of your uploads. If you wish to do neither, simply click the X.png. If you want to re-open the modal, click the Manageicon.png icon at the top right corner.

Clicking 'Add Metadata' will take you to the Metadata Template Page. See Metadata for more information on tagging assets with metadata.

Clicking 'Update Thumbnail' will lead you to the Update Thumbnail Page where you can upload images to update the thumbnail for each asset selected. See the Thumbnail page [1] in the wiki for a detailed walkthrough.

Clicking 'Upload Status' will lead you to the Activity Page where you can review or monitor the complete, in-progress, or failed transactions. See Activity Page for more information.

Clicking 'View Assets' will lead you to the folder you chose to upload your assets to.

Clicking 'Email Share' will create a new email share with the assets you just uploaded.


Pencil.jpg Note: It's very important that while the assets are uploading, you need to keep Runner/your browser window open, otherwise your upload will not be completed.


Aspera Upload

Using Aspera Upload utilizes Aspera Connect which specializes in secure, SSL-Encrypted transfers, and excels in achieving no packet loss over low bandwidth, high latency connections. We recommend using Aspera if your network connection is unreliable or limited in bandwidth.
