Avalon supports ingest of multiple derivatives that may be selected with the High/Medium/Low gear-buttons of the video player during playback. The “File” field in the manifest and the naming convention of the files in the Avalon dropbox directory must be formatted correctly for the batch ingest to be successful. Avalon will know what filename to look for from the manifest file, find the quality levels specified in the dropbox directory, and ingest the formatted files accordingly. It is not required to have all three quality tiers for multiple file ingest.
For a single Avalon item in the manifest file, input a filename in the “File” field and input “Yes” in the “Skip Transcoding” field . Format the of the manifest file. Add multiple files for this Avalon item to the dropbox directory. The “File” field as well as the filenames file names of your different quality files in the Avalon dropbox directory must be formatted with the following convention below.:Manifest file formatting:
|File Name in Manifest File||filename.mp4|
|Files in Dropbox Directory|
|filename.high.mp4; filename.medium.mp4; filename.low.mp4|
