Clip Library

The Silverstack clip library in the left bar gives you the possibility to organize your ingested assets. Clips are grouped together in Bins (usually one bin per camera card), which can be organized inside folders.

Select a folder or bin and all its files display in the list view in the UI center.

The library outline can be sorted in custom order with drag & drop, or you can have it automatically sorted by name or date.

Select in the “View” Menu if you only want to see files that have been detected as clips or also all other files/documents (see “Show Clips Only” / “Show Clips and Documents”).

Metadata columns can be added and removed to/from the clips list one-by-one. You can also save and manage custom column layouts.

Metadata can be edited for many metadata fields that allow so by double clicking in the clips list table. Multi edit of the same column for multiple clips is possible via the General Info tab of the right bar.

Exchange and Share Clip Libraries

Silverstack offers different possibilities to exchange and merge metadata between multiple workstations. Having several options to share metadata gives you more flexibility in scenarios where different Silverstack libraries are used along the production workflow: on set for fast and secure offloading, near set for metadata handling and in post production houses.

Working with Library Assets

The “Media” menu button in the toolbar allows to work with media in the library e.g. for backup or verification.


You can export the information in the library in optimized formats for third party applications via the Export menu in the toolbar.

Transfer of Metadata:


You can import certain file formats to insert or overwrite additional clip metadata in the Silverstack library via the Import menu in the toolbar. The metadata preview wizard allows you to validate and adapt the import options.
