What is a Library?

A library is a folder where you store your templates. You can access these folders from different projects. Using the library is easy, just drag the content into the library to store your artwork and then drag it into your Camera, Timeline, or Thumbnails view where you want to reuse it. Organize your library using subfolders. You can keep several different library folders on your hard drive or network.

What is a Template?

A template is an individual copy of the artwork stored in the library. This artwork can be reused in different scenes. Once a template is stored in the library, you can access it from any project, as many times as needed.

Dragging a template into your project copies the content in it. It does not link it to the original, which means you can modify this individual copy.
