These allow you more control over the Folder you're working in. The settings listed here are only available to those with Administrator permissions (at the Folder, Production, or Company levels).
The two options here allow you more control over the access to, and within, the Folder:
- Multi-Factor Authentication - Enabling this will require anyone in the Folder to create and sign in using additional information beyond their normal password.
- Digital Rights Management - Enabled by default, this helps maintain the security of any assets that have been uploaded to Moxion.
- Allow Company Admins Access - This is also on by default and switching it off will restrict Company Admin access to the folder in question.
Admin-Only Access to Playlink Status - This restricts the ability to see whether or not a playlink has been viewed to those with Admin permissions (of any level). When switched on, anyone without that permission level will have access to the Activity Stream removed and will also not be able to see the Viewed/Unviewed status in the Playlinks section.
Here is what you would see before switching this on:
And here is what anyone without Admin permissions will see afterwards:
Note that the Activity Stream button is blanked out, and the Viewed/Unviewed status is no longer there.
These allow you more control over playback quality and resolution and whether any additional assets are created.
Allowable Playback Resolutions
With adaptive streaming playback, you can choose the resolutions available to viewers. All of these are selected by default, but if you'd only like the highest quality available, you can toggle off the lower quality options.
Having the 480p option enabled can be handy if the production or someone on it is in a remote area and won't have a lot of bandwidth to work with.
Transcode to MXF
Typically used with our Immediates workflow, this allows files that are uploaded into a Folder to be transcoded into DNxHD36 or 45 formats alongside the standard playback files we create. They won't be viewable within Moxion, but they can be made available for editorial teams who need something of better quality or that's more compatible with their timeline. Higher bitrate DNxHD options are not available because the proxies files we get from QTAKE (or other methods) are not of sufficient bitrate to warrant DNxHD115 or 175 quality.
Original files that you upload to make use of transcoding to MXF will need to have a resolution of either 1920x1080 or 1280x720.
A user will need Admin or Downloader (No Watermark) permissions in order to be able to download DNx/MXFs and untouched original files.
It's important to note that transcoding to MXF increases the total amount of storage within your production on Moxion! The creation of those files will impact any storage-related costs.
iPad Standardize Brightness
Allows you to set a preferred brightness level in SDR and HDR for those viewing assets on an iPad.
These are the settings related to how we process files when they're uploaded to Moxion.
Target Playback Bitrate
The bitrate that we encode video files at for playback on Moxion. More information about the different bitrates can be found in our Upload Specifications.
Allows you to select where the asset's thumbnail is drawn from within the clip. You can change an asset’s thumbnail by scrubbing along it to find the image you want, then clicking and holding on it until the frame pulses.
Asset Transcode Options / Non-Transcode Folder
Allows you to disable transcoding for the Folder. Toggling the "Non-transcode folder" toggle to ON will disable transcoding, and we won't process any files that are uploaded to it. This should only be used on Folders uploading files to that are not intended for playback.
Video Processing Tune
A dropdown where you can select a preset for how videos uploaded to the folder are handled.
- Default - Works best for most scenarios and types of footage.
- Animation - Optimized for projects that aren't live action. Specifically, those using a 2D-animated style.
- Grain - Ideal for work that originated on film or which uses an intensive texture mapping solution like LiveGrain.
Multi-Channel Audio Layout
Moxion supports 5.1 sound in a number of file formats and two different channel layouts (SMPTE or Film ordering). Generally speaking, you can leave it on Auto (the default), where we will assume SMPTE ordering for any files that get uploaded. You'll only need to specify if the file you're uploading has enough audio tracks that it could be mistaken for another type of ordering.
More information about this can be found in our Audio Specification guide.
Validate Files Before Upload
Our upload process includes an optional validation step that can be enabled at the Folder, Production, or Company levels, where we will check for common issues with Dolby Vision or MXF files before they get uploaded to Moxion.
These are user-generated labels that can be applied to individual assets as a quick way of organizing your content, making it easier to group and search for. You can add as many as you like and color-code them however you'd like.
Allows you to choose and customize the watermark that's being used on the Folder.
This is where third party connections to Moxion can be made. Currently, you can use it to integrate with the ShotGrid VFX software. You can learn more about that process here.
You can set up integrations with live broadcasting platforms from here to stream from cameras on set, edit suites, and more!
