Library in Harmony Network

The library is a storage centre for all of the production assets; the elements stored in the library are called templates. Although it is mainly used for cut-out animation, the library also serves paperless and traditional animation processes. The library can contain any asset used in a Toon Boom Harmony production.

When working on the database, the structure of the library differs from when working on Harmony Stage as a stand-alone application.

 

Harmony provides different library folders. There are three default library folders available:

Symbols
The only library folder containing symbols for your project. You can organize the symbols library folder using subfolders, but you cannot create a second library for your symbols. This library is local to your project.
Environment
A folder located inside the Environment folder. Every asset stored in this folder is accessible from any job and scene contained within this environment.
Job
A folder located inside the Job folder. Every asset stored in this folder is accessible from any scene contained within this job.
You can create a folder called "library" in the usa_db folder on the server to create a Global library. Once the Harmonyapplication is restarted, a "Global"  library folder will automatically appear in every user's library. Every asset stored in this folder is accessible from any scene, job and environment.
