Motivation

After a project has been created, by using the UC Create a Project [C IG] guide, it is now possible to import sequences and clips to the project collection. There are multiple file types supported as the project document, such as:

finalcut

application/final-cut-pro

Final Cut Pro 7 XML

finalcut-x

application/final-cut-pro-x

Final Cut Pro X XML

aaf

application/aaf

AAF

fabric

application/fabric

Fabric CEMS

vidispine

application/x-vidispine

SequenceType

Clips in the document needs to be mapped to assets, items or storages using an essence map in the body of the request.

Example

Here is an example creating a new project version with the clips and sequences from a Final Cut Pro project.

Request:

POST /import/project?collectionId=VX-1&type=finalcut&uri=file:///storage/project.xml

  <file path="file://localhost/storage/VX-1.mov" hash="7b8d6ffe1ea468800578d6b7d4a09b012c461569"/>
</EssenceMappingsDocument>
