Keyword Search

  • day rural farm = farm AND day AND rural - all three keywords need to be present.

  • day rural NOT snow - day AND rural keywords except any shots with snow. Use NOT to filter out unwanted keywords.

  • lake OR river - all clips with a lake or a river visible.

Grouping by Gallery

Galleries are like folders and are used to segment clips into locations, camera angles and categories. It can often be advantageous to use gallery groupings in your search.

Depending on the keywords used, search returns can be quite large. In this example, 2363 clip returns. 

By selecting Group by gallery the search results will be grouped by available gallery types which would include view angles, country, city and other useful groupings.
