Asset Overview

Assets are global entities used across various aspects of a job. Each asset is a container for all items and information that make up the individual asset.

These items include:


Asset details contain all default and custom fields created for assets.

Security Groups

Assets can have their own security groups applied so only users within the security group will have access to the asset’s information.


Tasks are children of an asset. Each asset will contain its own list of tasks that are assigned to a user and given a status.


Elements are generic entities that may be associated with an asset. The list of element types are sourced from the administrative section of NIM. This feature is explained further in the Elements section of the documentation.


Files are any source or scene file used to created the asset. Files saved from a NIM Connectors are automatically logged as files on the selected asset. This feature is explained further in the Files section of the documentation.


Asset Review contains all review items uploaded to this asset or task attached to this asset. This feature is explained further in the Review section of the documentation.


Notes can be assigned directly to an asset. Asset notes are used when a message needs to be shared to all users with tasks on the asset. This feature is explained further in the Notes section of the documentation.

Assets can be accessed via multiple views which allows for different types of interaction. The asset list view is presented here.
