About uploading and publishing assets
Your work in Dynamic Media Classic falls in three basic areas:
- Uploading file assets to Dynamic Media Classic.
- Managing your files so you can use them to build rich-media assets.
- Publishing your asset files to a Dynamic Media Classic server so that they are available for delivery to your website and application.
When you upload asset files to DMC and when you publish asset files to Dynamic Media Classic servers, the system records these file transfers on the Jobs page. You can go to this page to track and monitor your upload and publishing activities.
When you upload a file, Dynamic Media Classic generates the URL for the file. This URL is not active until you publish the file.
A new Instant Publish feature was made available shortly after the release of DMC 6.0. This feature, which publishes assets immediately with one step, is being rolled out gradually, replacing the “Mark for Publish” functionality. Some users will continue to see the current interface and functionality for a while, until they are included in the rollout. In addition, some assets will continue to use the “Mark for Publish” process for a while after the rollout.
