Scene7 Export Assets FAQ


What options are there to export in bulk?
You can export up to 1 GB/500 files using SPS. For questions about a full account backup, contact Scene7 Tech Support.


Are there any differences between files exported using "Export Original" and the original file?
There is no difference between the file that is exported using "Export Original" and the original file. Scene7 stores the original in an abstracted filename, and then creates a copy at export time under the original name. It is the same file that was uploaded.


Why does the error "Exceeded maximum zip file size of 1 GB" appear in the job logs when I try to export a number of files?
You receive this error in the job logs if there is an attempt to add more items to an export once a 1-GB threshold has been reached.


What is the maximum zip file size for the Media Portal export?
You can't add additional files once a 1-GB threshold has been reached, or you've selected 500 files.
The export maximum size and number restrictions do apply to master images in addition to derived images.
For more information, see

Media Portal user can't download an original asset, or a Media Portal user can't download a PDF as original. Why is that?
See the following Help article, which describes the export options in SPS. Once "Export Original" is enabled, your users can export the original files.

When an asset is loaded into Scene7 and then renamed in Scene7, what is the filename when the image is downloaded?
In a previous version, the filename of an asset was renamed when the asset ID was renamed. Any asset renamed more recently than September 2011 has updated name when exported. You can rename an older asset, and it has the renamed name when exported.


Why am I still getting deselected Preset options during export?
Deselecting the Active checkbox next to the preset only removes it for Media Portal users and not for other user roles. You are not a Media Portal user, and that is why the preset appears for you.


Why can't I select the option “Size = other” while exporting images?
To resolve this issue, have a company administrator of the account select the “Enable User-Defined Conversion” option. Choose Setup > Image Presets to access this option.

If the Enable User-Defined Conversion option is not available, make sure that the "Show MediaPortal Features" under Personal Setup is selected.

When do export links expire?
Export links are active until one week after its generation. Once this period is over, the link returns an empty page without any download.
This active period is non-configurable.


Where are the Media Cart items stored?
The media cart is stored in local Flash cache. SPS doesn’t set any limitation on the maximum assets that you can add into media cart, but the Flash runtime controls it.

It’s possible that media cart will be cleaned automatically if there are many entries in that cache.

Find the following description from the official Flash runtime Help:
