  1. To manually link to files, do the following:
    1. Open and select the bin in which you want the master clip or sequence to appear.
    2. Select File | Input | Link to Media, navigate to the filepath, and select the file or files for linking.

    3. Choose the file type for linking:
      • Summit (*.XML, *.IDX): Creates a master clip or sequence which references all the media files and metadata as described by the XML.
    4. Click Open. The linked files appear as master clips or sequences.
  2. To manually link to volumes (folders), do the following:

      • Autodetect Plug-in (*) for volume linking.
    2. Click Open.
    3. Navigate to the required folder, such as V:\media\default. A new bin is created and populated with all the assets found in the folder. The linked asset appears as master clips or sequences.
