To move, copy and delete asset(s):

Move

  • To move an asset in Overcast, click the “Move Asset” button towards the bottom of the left side of the single asset view (it looks like a four-sided cursor)  
  • Select the Project you’d like to move the asset to, and more specifically the folder (if needed).
  • Click “Move Asset” 
  • This will move the file to your chosen location.

 Copy

  • To copy an asset in Overcast, click the “Copy Asset” button on the left side of the single asset view (it looks like two sheets of paper on top of each other)
  • Select the Project you’d like to copy the asset to, and more specifically the folder (if needed).
  • Click “Copy Asset” 
  • This will copy the file to your chosen location

Delete

  • To delete an asset in Overcast, click the delete icon towards the bottom of the single asset view menu on the left (it should look like a trash can). 
  • Overcast will ask you are you sure you want to delete the file and repeat the file name, 
  • Click “Yes, Delete Asset” and Overcast will delete the file. 

To Move, Copy and Delete multiple assets at a time:

  • Select multiple assets in the project or folder view using CTRL + clicking on the files or using the mouse to hold and frag over files to select multiple assets.
  • Now use the three blue action buttons at the top of the asset view labelled: “Copy Assets”, “Move Assets”, & “Delete Assets.”
  • These three buttons act identically to the three actions above, ask you where you’d like to move/copy assets to, and ask you if you are sure you want to delete the files.

Be Strategic About Managing Video Content

“Video content management via a portal interface is a strategic imperative.” — Aragon Research Globe for Enterprise Video, 2022.

If you create video content, you need to be strategic about managing video content!

In a bygone era when video teams worked in the same office, managing the creation, production and distribution of video projects was reasonably doable. Not without challenges, though!

Enterprise Video Strategy: Scaling and Expanding

Live streaming became one of the most popular uses of video during the pandemic as enterprises needed to communicate with external stakeholders and also employees who were working from home.

In 2022 the popularity of this form of mass communication is not waning at all.

Video podcasting is also on the increase. Use cases include communicating with customers, marketing, sales, and training.

Video Now Main Form of Content For Enterprises

“Video is now poised to become the main form of content that’s digested in the enterprise. The huge surge in video meetings was the first wave in the shift to the visual enterprise. The second wave that is arriving now and in 2022 is about the need to organise, optimise, and deliver visual content to users.” — Aragon Research Globe for Enterprise Video, 2022.

This demonstrates the need for providers to step forward with innovative technology that enables enterprises to create, manage and distribute video content. The key focus for enterprises is on customer experience and employee engagement.

The Role of Video in Digital Transformation

In 2020 workplaces as we knew them experienced massive unexpected disruption.

Enterprises found themselves faces with a need for rapid digital transformation when the pandemic necessitated employees to work remotely. Suddenly, colleagues and managers were not in the same room to share information or collaborate on team projects.

This led to much upheaval among workforces. However, a magic pill to cure those ills was close at hand: video!

Influencers With A Cause

Social media activism creates opportunities for grassroots movements to evolve and expand. Some of the best-known examples are the Ice Bucket Challenge, #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, which have all involved successful social media movements.

So, how do creators and influencers with a cause go about making a difference?
