The Library in Avid Studio or Studio 16 is a database of all content on the computer that is available to be used in a Movie or Disc project. The Library uses a combination of Watch Folders, Import from device, and manual file importing to populate the Library database. Once the content has been added to the Library database it can then be added to a project.
The Library is presented to the user in two forms throughout Avid Studio/Studio 16.
1. The Library
2. The Compact Library
