Replace File References

By replacing references it is possible to replace, for example, Images or Fonts referenced by Scenes or Geometries, with different Images or Fonts. It is only possible to replace an Image with an Image, or a Font with a Font.

To replace references is practical, for example, when rebranding a corporate identity.

Caution: Do not replace references at random. Make sure that the replacement files are compatible in terms of size, scale, color, and other Viz Artist properties used for playout. Research and test before replacing references.

Caution: Use the replace file references feature with care, as it can potentially be harmful. For example, if the image to be replaced is in a Scene which is currently on-air.

Warning: There is no UNDO to this procedure. Be very careful, and try this procedure first on one or two Scenes only.

Note: References in one file must be unique. It is not possible to replace multiple references with the same file (UUID). If multiple references (e.g. fonts) need to be replaced with the same file then this needs to be done in Viz Artist.
