Offloading all kinds of assets is possible with Silverstack’s proven copy features, which offer secured backups with checksum verification. The Offload wizard scans the source folder and automatically selects the «Generic Copy» mode when non-supported files are detected. Not all media files are recognized as playable Clips by Silverstack, besides the supported advanced media formats that can be found in the article Assets in Silverstack.
You will get a yellow notification reading «Ingesting NO clips» in the offload wizard in case Silverstack didn’t recognize the scanned files as a supported advanced camera format. However, you can go ahead and proceed to offload and check sum the files. Once the process is finished, the files will be registered in the Library, where you can continue to work with them. Just make sure to enable «Show Clips and Documents» in the View menu:

The metadata from Generic files can also be included in the reports, along with the supported camera media. For more information about the creation of reports, please check the article Creating Reports.
