The CaptureOne application offers the ability to pack images and sidecar files together into an EIP file (Enhanced Image Package), which can simplify uploads and help prevent information from getting lost. An EIP file packs the raw image file along with all of the proxy information into a single container, which makes it a convenient way to upload, store, and download file information.
For best performance and results in DF Studio, it is recommended to upload a separate JPG preview along with EIP files. The following steps document that process.
1. Access the web-based upload interface using the Assignment Link from the email notification.
2. Verify the Assignment Key by entering the email address associated with it. (For more information, see Upload Files With an Assignment Key.)
3. Specify the EIP files for upload, by dragging files or folders onto the window or using the “Select Files for Upload” button. (For more information, see Upload Files to DF Studio.)
4. Select a Setup option, and take note of the selected option, as it will be important when uploading the JPG files. Click the “Upload” button to upload the EIP files.
5. Once the transfer of EIP files has finished, click the “Start a new Upload” button to send the JPG files.
6. Drag and drop the JPG files or use the “Select Files for Upload” button to add them to the upload window.
7. On the Setup configuration screen, specify the name of the existing Setup into which the EIP files have already been uploaded.
It is important to enter the exact name of Setup where the EIP files are stored. This will ensure that the JPG files will stack with the existing EIP files within the DF Studio Project. The filenames and Setup name must be identical in order for file stacking to work. (For more information, see File Stacking.)
8. Click the “Upload” button to upload the JPG files.
9. Once the JPGs have completed transferring, send a message to the Assignment creator to inform them that the upload has been completed.
10. After the message has been sent, close the browser window.
