The Assets Library is a repository where you can keep all the assets that your team needs to use across your Graphics Packages, Pages, and Mechanics.
Assets uploaded to the Library are stored, shared, and managed by Team, and owned by the Company (not individual users), just like Projects and Graphics Packages. This means that even if team members leave, the assets will remain there so you can keep working with them.
Supported file formats and size
- .JPG; .PNG; .SVG; .WebP or .GIF
- Size up to 5 MB.
- MP4; WebM
- Size up to 50 MB
- .ZIP files up to 5 MB, containing the individual images.
- The compressed file will be processed and stored as a single sprite sheet file.

Using media files in your graphics packages
Assets Library can be triggered from within the Graphics Editor, using the source picker control on any Image, Image Sequence, or Video element.
This will display the Library interface, where you can manage files, and also select the one you need to use on the current Element.
(1) Select a Video, Image, or Image Sequence building block.
(2) Click on the element source control to display the library.
(3) Select the uploaded file from the list. According to the selected building block, the type of file that you can use must be of the same type. E.g. If you select an image element, you will only be able to select images in the library, other types of files will appear as grayed out and will not be selectable.
(4) Click on "Select" to use it on the building block.
