This article will demonstrate how to copy content from a source Media Library to a destination Media Library. Copying content to another Media Library makes a digital copy in another media library and enables independent management of the newly copied content.
Note: Copying content makes a duplicate digital file and increases your storage (based on the size of the content). If you do not want to make a digital copy, you can Share the content.
First, it is important to make sure you navigate to the library where you want to the copied files to end up, that is called the destination Media Library.
To enable copy, go to the Library menu and click on the Sharing tab.
Add Source Media Library
In the Sharing Options area, click on +Add to choose the source Media Library. The source Media Library will be able to copy content to a destination Media Library.
After clicking the +Add button users can Search or Select the source Media Library. Then click the Add to My Shares button. In the example below the source Media Library is Marketing/Communications.
After adding the source Media Library you need to enable Copy, just click the Copy checkbox. The copy permission has been granted for the source Media Library (Marketing/Communications).
Copy Content from Source Media Library
Next, navigate to the source Media Library in Ensemble Video, in this example it is Marketing/Communications. Find the media you would like to copy and click the Copy button.
The Copy Content menu will allow the user to choose the destination Media Library. In the example below the destination Media Library is Pat Bryant. Click the Copy Content button to make a digital copy (duplicate file) of the content in the destination Media Library (Pat Bryant).
Access Content in Destination Media Library
The copied content is now in the destination Media Library. The content can now be independently edited, managed and published.
