Transformation Templates

In this area you create and edit predefined transformations for images, to make use of Dynamic Media's image manipulation features.

From the transformation templates screen you can add some of the more commonly used presets, including scale, rotate and crop and add some commands, such as width and height for the scale operation. You also have access to more advanced options and for any parameters that aren't included in the presets and can add the transformation parameters in the box.

Video transcoding profiles

For all videos that are added Amplience, you can set up video transcoding profiles that will be created on ingestion of a video. This allows the most appropriate video profile to be chosen for a particular device. You can create new profiles, but we will generally set up the commonly used profiles for an account as standard.

Note: You can specify that a transcoding profile is added automatically to a video uploaded from a bulk upload, or you can add a profile manually from the asset's property pane. See the video transcode profiles page for more information.

Asset properties are discussed in more detail on the Assets page.

Upload Connectors

When connecting your account to an SFTP location to bulk upload assets, you would come here to set up an SFTP connector. This allows you to create a direct connection to an SFTP folder using your server domain and login details.

Bulk Upload

This FTP connector will then be connected to a bulk upload. Bulk upload will allow you to automate various processes within upload, such as asset ingestion. So, in the example below, all of the images that are put into your SFTP folder will be automatically uploaded to Amplience on an hourly basis. This is generally set up at the beginning of the project, according to customer requirements.

Apps

In the apps section you'll find the apps that have been provisioned on your account. Not all apps are provisioned by default, so when commencing a customer project, we will discuss with you the apps that will be required. If you are using Dynamic Content app, you will log in via a separate URL instead of launching the app from Content Hub.

The Social app is used to manage the ingesting of assets from User Generated Content (UGC) and is discussed in more detail on the UGC getting Started page.

Media share is covered in the tools video on the Tutorial videos page.
