File Structure

A Harmony project is composed of several files. The drawings and colour palettes are not embedded in the project. They are separate linked files. Therefore, if you want to archive or share a project, you require all the files contained in the folder structure.

Scene File Structure

Here is an example of the file structure contained in a scene. As you work and use more features, different folders may appear in your structure.

Harmony Stand-Alone Scene File Structure

The Harmony scene folder contains the following folders: frames, audio, elements, etc.

Folder Contents
annotation Contains the images and thumbnails created while drawing in an Annotation column in the Xsheet view.
audio Contains all imported audio files.
elements

Contains all the drawing files. The drawings are organized by folders named like the layers they are associated with.

environments

Contains the exported palette files that were originally stored at the environment level in the Harmony Server database structure or the palettes in a Harmony Stand Alone scene that will be imported later at the environment level in Harmony Server.

frames

Contains the final frames after a render if you are using the default settings of the Write node in the Node view.

jobs

Contains the exported palette files that were originally stored at the environment level in the Harmony Server database structure or the palettes in a Harmony Stand Alone scene that will be imported later at the environment level in Harmony Server.

palette-library

Contains scene palettes and scene palette list files.

timings

This folder is used when a user links external images to a scene and wants to store a backup copy in case the link breaks.
