You can also add items to the playlist via the "Insert" > "Item(s)…​" context menu command.

Another way to add item to the playlist is using the integrated browser. It contains three tabs: Cinegy Browser, Cinegy Search and File Browser. To show/hide the integrated browser tabs, select/deselect the corresponding option in the "View" main menu.

The File Browser allows to browse for video clips stored on the local computer or on a shared network location.

Note
The "Cinegy Browser" tab is only available with Cinegy Desktop installed on the machine running Cinegy Air. To work with integrated browser, you need a separate corresponding software license.

Cinegy Browser is convenient for navigating through the Cinegy Archive database, searching for specific nodes and selecting clips in Rolls, Sequences or ClipBins in order to drag-and-drop them into the playlist. Cinegy Search is a plug-in for performing search operations within Cinegy Archive database.
