When you create your Scenery account you’ll be guided to either watch a quick one minute tutorial video, explore a sample project, or you can just jump right into your first project.
If you decided to exit out of the tab above, no problem. The following will get you on your way to your Scenery editing journey.
The dashboard was designed to give you an overview of everything within your Scenery team. We provide you a 30,000 ft view (well, more like a 3 ft view depending on how far you are sitting from your computer) into your team projects, collections and private projects and collections. You can also see team activity which shows recent actions and editing activity from you and your teammates.
Starting in the upper left corner, you’ll notice a Scenery logo. If you ever get lost or want to navigate back to a team overview, this icon will always take you back to the dashboard.
Next, click the menu that has your Scenery username and email associated with your account. From here you will be able to explore your “User Profile”, where you can alter your name and see your individual activity.
Going down the menu, select “Team Settings”.
Within team settings, explore the benefits of staying brand consistent. Change your team name to the name associated with your brand. Add your brand fonts, colors, and color LUTs if applicable.
You will also find a designated spot to invite collaborators to your team, see who is a member of your team, and who is guest within your team (for example, someone may be invited to a project but not to your entire team). You can always remove a collaborator from your team.
Heading back to the menu, you can create a new team, switch between teams, and join other teams you’ve been invited to. You can also switch between teams using the panel of team colored icons.
Back to your Scenery dashboard you can also directly invite collaborators into your team.
Continuing down the left-hand side of your home dashboard, notice the panel of listed items.
Starting with New Project, you can jump right in to create your video.
Speaking of Projects, what is a project exactly?
A project in Scenery is the place where you create and work on a set of related videos with your team for a given video project. Within a project you can organize, edit and review with your team. Projects can have multiple “Scenes” within them, so you can work on different versions of videos (for example, different formats for different channels) within the same project.
"Home" will provide an overview of all of the projects you have access to, including projects other collaborators on your team create.
Projects you personally create will be listed under the "My Projects" tab.
In order to create your video, you will of course need media. Within Scenery, you have access to "All Media" that lives within your Scenery team and projects.
Given that you may want to keep certain projects private from your team before allowing them to jump in, you can make projects available for the team or for yourself. Depending on the permissions you set, your project will be listed under "Team" or "Private". You can always allow someone outside of your Scenery Team into a project as well. Projects shared with someone outside of your team will live under the Shared section.
Organizing assets with Collections
Collections within Scenery are designed to help keep you organized. Within the Scenery homepage, you can access Team Collections, such as Brand assets. Creating a team collection gives any collaborator who jumps into a project access to organized team assets. You can also create collections at the project level.
Team Activity log
Aside from getting a glimpse into all the projects and media you have access to, Scenery provides you with a team activity log, for you to see what other collaborators are working on.
To help you get started, we’ve provided eight example projects for you to explore. Double-click into any example and begin editing in the timeline.
