14. Add Video Files by clicking the + button to the right of the Add Video File(s) field for each Camera Angle. When prompted, browse to the file location on your computer and select the video you wish to upload. If you have multiple files for a specific camera angle, please be sure to include all the files (preferably selected in the correct sequential order) at the same time by using one of the multi-select methods appropriate for your computer, or add them sequentially, one at a time to the appropriate Camera Angle.

*Note: Ideally, it is best to keep the number of files uploaded per angle to the minimum amount possible. Uploading under 10 files per angle will help to manage any space issues you may encounter on your computer locally which could affect the ability to upload.

If you need to remove a file prior to starting the upload, use the red “X” in the Delete File column.

 

15. Adjust Rip Directory Settings. By default, the Rip Directory is turned off. Click the Gear Icon to the right above the Camera Angle to open the Rip Directory Settings window.

Use the settings to redirect the Rip file to a location that may provide more sufficient storage space if necessary. Setting options available are:

  • ... : Used to browse to the location you would like to select the Rip file to relocate to
  • Reset: Used to reset the Rip file location to the application default
  • OK: used to proceed with the current selection
  • Cancel: Cancels the selection process and leaves current settings in place

Once the upload is complete, the temporary Rip file is removed from the Uploads folder and the storage space it used is recovered.


16. Continue by selecting the Continue or Cancel button in the lower right. Selecting Continue will begin the upload process, Cancel will return you to the Transfer Status Page and cancel the previous selections.  Once the upload process has begun, monitor the progress from the Video Express Quality Selector / Comments page for each file/angle or from the Transfer Status Page.
