Create your first production

A Flow production is the project structure in which you can collaborate with your production team on the media, stories, screenplays and transcripts in your production library. In the production overview, click on the large Create button to create a new production.

productions_create_button

Note: the free plan comes with one free production. If this is not your first production and you are still on the free plan, you will be asked to upgrade.

Choose a descriptive title for your production. You can also choose a picture for your production if you like.

production_edit

Don’t forget to press the update button to save your changes. You will be taken to your production library once the changes are saved. Now it’s time to add some material!

 

Add material to your production library

Your library contains all the media in your production. Initially, it is empty, so let’s add media to it!

In the top right corner of the toolbar, you’ll find the Add File menu. Click it and select the File option as shown below. Select some video files in the file picker that pops up.

library_add

Your upload starts and your files should appear in the library (press the refresh link if the library pops up an outdated message).

Organize and use your Flow library

Now that your material is in Flow, it is time to put it to use!

You can organize your material in collections, which can be shared with external parties or even exported to your edit suite. If your library is getting large, you might want to learn more about searching and navigating your Flow library. In Flow, it is also possible to create a screenplay, create an A/V Script or create a textual time-synced transcript of your material.
