Integrations allow you to quickly upload assets right from your favorite DCC Software

Asseter supports 100+ media formats including Computer graphics specific file types e.g. HDRI images, Cinema4D, 3Ds MAX, Houdini files, file sequences, VDBs, Adobe CC files, documents, Presentation files, CAD models, vector images like Adobe Illustrator or SVG files, all industry standard still images and video files including HAP HAP/q, MXF, DXV3, Apple ProPes, DPX, EXR etc.

Browser supported previews could be also generated automatically during import process.

New files are held in the Asseter Waiting Room until they have been approved by moderators or with properly assigned tags before being added to a library.

You can specify special filters and choose which files should be imported, and which should be left behind

Just drop your files or folders onto Asseter web page and Uploading Interface opens automatically

Asseter supports files and metadata batch importing from CSV file. Just drop CSV file onto Asseter interface and Uploading process begins

Organizing

Structurize your assets for immediate access

Organize your assets with two-level hierarchy. Define types, categories and sub-categories. You can also use this hierarchy organization as a filter

Create unlimited amount of tags and search through all your assets database. You can quickly locate asset by combining multiple tags in your search line and switch between AND / OR logical operators

Each asset is stored in dedicated folder on your NAS or in the Cloud. In On-Prem installation you can get direct path to the file or folder on your NAS, copy it anв start working with the asset immediately.

Each asset has its own user-defined metadata structure like Author, Render Engine, Compatible software, Linked projects etc. Metadata field can be configured in Settings separately for each asset type.

Create custom collections and fill it with assets the way you need. Collections are great way to group different types of assets.

Each user has its own Favorites list, which contains assets, user liked. You can quickly return to your liked assets with just one click.

Custom list is a super easy way to collect assets you are going to download, share or import into your DCC software.

Asseter supports file sequences, that are widely used in CG content production. System deals with sequences as a one asset, not as hundreds of separate files

Asseter allows you to share selected assets to the external network with the link without granting access to the whole library

Tools for quick tagging

Don't waste your time writing tags one by one

When dealing with thousands of assets, tagging could be time-consuming. Asseter uses Neural Networks and Computer Vision to automatically recognize image details and suggest tags based on this recognition

Asseter Scan & Import App can read metadata from imported files, including EXIF, IPTC-NAA. XMP and native files metadata

During import and subsequent analysis Asseter suggests tags based on our proprietary AI analysis engine. You can apply tags with just one click

Asseter provides tools that allow apply the same tags to several assets at once. Tools are available both during import via Asseter Scan & Import, and in the Web Interface

Searching

Lightning-fast. Plus filters.

Just type in some tags and get the results less than in second

Each asset has its own tags set, that you can enter manually or with the help of our proprietary AI tagging engine

Search engine also indexes all the assets metadata including custom fields

Change search logic by switching between AND and OR logical operations

Save your searches for future use, or turn it into smart collections. All new assets, stratifying the search rules, will be added into smart collection automatically

You can use hierarchy bar with asset type, category and sub-category as a filter, narrowing search results

You can refine your search results even further by using asset metadata filter, e.g. usage in projects, file types, compatible software, author, source and more

Find assets based on asset dominant color

Find similar images in the Web by using Google Image search

Previews

See, what's in there. Right in browser.

Asseter has been created by Media Artists for Media Artists and besides all regular media formats such as H.264, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, MOV, MP4 has native professional formats support. All industry standard codecs like HAP / HAP Q, DXV3, EXR, DPX, MXF, HDRI, and many more are supported.
The system also supports all open 3D formats, and besides that, several industry standard proprietary 3D formats, e.g. Cinema 4D, Houdini, 3Ds MAX, Maya, zBrush.
Thumbnails are generated automatically during import and upload process. But you can specify your own preview images, if you want.

Video previews are generated automatically for supported file formats. It is vital especially when dealing with professional codecs like HAP / HAP Q, DXV3 or some image sequence that could not be previewed in browser or without professional software.

If asset contains video preview, it could be seen without opening asset page, directly on the asset grid with the help of mouse cursor. Just slide with your cursor over the asset thumbnail and you will get the idea of video content.

Each asset supports multiple preview types, including image, video, audio, document, HDRI and 3D Model view.

Integrated 3D Player allows you to view suitable 3D models directly in your browser. You can switch between Reflective, Wireframe and Greyshaded views and check how the light woks by turning on and rotating HDRI image.

You can check how the HDR Images work on a shaderball and different materials right inside your browser.

Asseter automatically generated previews of the first page of PDF docs. You can open pdf itself directly in your browser
