Exporting assets from Dynamic Media Classic

You can save assets you edited in Dynamic Media Classic to a local network drive. Exported assets are bundled in a ZIP file for downloading or sending by e-mail.
The compressed Zip file has a maximum file size of 1 GB for the export job. Also, be aware that you are allowed a maximum of 500 total assets per export job.
Dynamic Media Classic keeps a record of export jobs in the Jobs screen.

    • Presets Optionally, choose an Image Preset to format the asset when you export it. If you choose an Image Preset, the other formatting options are not available, as the asset adopts the formats defined by the Image Preset.
