Subclips API Link


Subclips are a special type of asset that is derived from the time-based metadata segment of another [asset] of a particular version.

The metadata on Subclips are directly related to the time-based metadata and all metadata on the Subclip is cloned to the related time-based metadata segment on the parent asset.

Unlike other assets they don't generally have files or formats, though this can be supplied to them via the API.

Like assets, they and their metadata are indexed by the search engine, meaning that they can be searched for, used in saved searches and also viewed like an Asset.

Subclip collection membership

Subclips can be added to collections.

Subclip sub-entities

Subclips can have the following information stored against them:

  • Access Control
  • Approval Status
  • Formats
  • History
  • Posters
  • Relationships to other Assets and Subclips
  • Segments (though they themselves cannot have time-based metadata and thus Subclips)
  • Shares

Relationship to parent asset

As they are directly related to the parent asset version, operations on the parent asset can have effects on the Subclip such as:

  • Removal of the time-based metadata will remove the related Subclip.
  • Deleting of the Asset version will remove the Subclips that are associated to that version
  • Deleting of the Asset will also delete all Subclips associated to the Asset.
