Am I missing something or is it really as complicated as it seems.

This is what I did to attach a couple releases to a video.

Upload video
add keywords etc to video
click on the 'attachment' paperclip thumbnail for the video
attach one file
attach second file
got back to video list and click on the '2' beside the paper clip
edit the name and file type of both releases

This seems like a lot of work to add releases.  Is there an easier way?

New announcement from Pond5:

"A long due update to the attachment process is that all attachments (releases and matte) now have to go through the ftp servers. This makes it easier to scale with more www servers and we don't have to disturb the web-server with unnecessary load.

We'll look over the ftp applets as well within the next few days with the aim to tame it to do releases and matte."


Connect to your Pond5 FTP on your preferred server.  If it does not exist, create a RELEASE folder.  And upload your release(s) into that folder.  Be patient, they take a while to be processed depending on how heavy the upload server load is.

After your release has been processed, on the UPLOADS page, click the checkbox on all clips you want to attach a specific release to.  Scroll down to the bottom and select "ATTACH RELEASE", then select the release you want from the new dropdown menu and click EXECUTE.

When you put a release in the RELEASE folder it becomes available perpetually to be attached to one or more clips.

The key is to be patient and wait for the release to be processed.  They are added to the processing queue just like new clips, so they can take a while.
