Importing Harmony Scenes to a Harmony Database
If you have exported scenes from Storyboard Pro with the option Harmony Database, you will need to import the exported scene package into your Harmony Server database before you can start working in them.
- Launch Control Center.
- In the log-in dialog, log into your Storyboard Pro database using an account with high privileges.
- In the top menu, select Environment > Create .
- In the Create Environment dialog, type in the name for the environment in which you wish to import your scenes. An environment is often used to separate different series or projects, so you can name your environment accordingly.
- Click on OK.
- In the Environments list, select the environment you just created.
- In the top menu, select Jobs > Create.
- In the Create Job dialog:
- In the Job Name field, type in the name for the job in which you want to import your scenes. Jobs are often used to separate episodes in a series, so you can name your job accordingly.
