How to convert an extra to a full length asset

Full length assets can only be included in episodes and specials, so when a full length asset is moved from a special to a season (or show) it must be classified as a clip or a preview. This section demonstrates how to convert an extra to a full length asset.

You must already have an existing special in which to place the asset. If the special does not exist, it needs to be created. Create special / Create episode

  • Open the season-level extra that you want to edit (Figure 1). 

Figure 1

  • Click Edit Type/Location in the upper right corner (Figure 2).

  • Click the Season dropdown menu and select no season, represented by the “------“ (Figure 3.1).
  • Click the Episode dropdown menu and click the special to which the asset should belong (Figure 3.2).
  • Click the Asset Type dropdown menu and click Full Episode (Figure 3.3). Full Episode will not appear as an option if the special already contains a full length asset. You must remove the existing full length asset in the special before assigning this asset.
  • Click Save (Figure 3.4).
