This tab is designed for managing Cinegy Archive connections and job folders in the corresponding Cinegy Archive databases. The tab displays the list of all database connections created and registered in PCS. These settings are used for Cinegy Archive targets and job folders creation.

Watch_Folder_CAS_connections
Important
You can add as many Cinegy Archive database connections as you need. Press the "+" button and fill in the form as described here.
Tip
This list is handy to simplify Cinegy Archive targets creation by reusing your settings as many times as needed.

Press the edit_button button next to the corresponding resource to edit it, or the Delete_resource_button button to delete it.

Caution
Cinegy Convert can be run along with Cinegy Convert Legacy. To ensure compatibility with Cinegy Archive 9.6 version and above without patch requirements, Cinegy Convert uses the same job drop targets structure as Cinegy Convert Legacy. In order to separate processing, additional processing group for job drop targets should be created, and all legacy job drop targets should be moved to it. In this case, jobs created in Cinegy Archive for Cinegy Convert and Cinegy Convert Legacy will not interfere.

Job Folders Configuration

Cinegy job folders and job drop targets can be managed via Cinegy Watch Service Configurator. To do this, press the Job_Folders_configuration button to access the desired database from the list. The "Edit JDF" dialog appears. The database is displayed in a convenient tree-like structure:

Edit_JDF_dialog

Right-click the "Job Folders" directory and select "Add job folder" to add a new job folder:

Watch_Service_add_jdf

In the following dialog that appears enter the new job folder name:

new_job_folder_name

Press "OK". The folder will appear in the database explorer.

To add a new export job drop target in the selected folder, right-click it and select the "Add Export job drop target" option:

Watch_Service_add_job_target

The "Add Export Job Drop Target" dialog appears allowing you to set the following parameters:

Add_Job_Drop_Target_dialog
  • Name – use the keyboard to enter the new export job drop target name.

  • TV Format – use the drop-down list to choose the required TV format or select <Allow all> to accept any source media TV format.

  • Processing group – select the required processing group from the drop-down list.

Note
Adding Quality Builder and Document Export job drop targets is similar; the TV format option is not topical for these job types.

Use the "Rename" context menu command to edit the name of a specific job folder or job drop target. Use the "Remove" context menu command to delete a specific job folder or job drop target:

JDF_context_menu

Job Folders Display

All the changes made on the "Watch Folders" tab of the Cinegy Convert Watch Service Configurator are immediately applied in the database and displayed in the Cinegy Desktop Explorer:

Desktop_Explorer_JDF_tree
Note
Please mind that for a job drop target to become ready for media transcoding tasks, a watch folder for monitoring nodes sent to the job drop target should be properly set up.
