View Mapping on Import
- Users can map or create a view while importing a .xchange file.
- During the import process Thunder will scan the .xchange file for all available views.
- If a view exists in the .xchange file, but not in your system, you’ll be prompted to map or create the view.
- Mapping the view will allow you to choose a Thunder view to import the view as.
- All subsequent imports will follow this mapping.
- Clicking the green plus sign will allow you to create the new view on your Thunder network.
- Click Ignore Blank Views to skip the view mapping process. This will result in unmarked media within the master.
- Users can manage their view mappings by clicking on Tools → Manage Views/View Sequences → Manage View Mappings
- Clicking the red x button will delete the last view mapping in the list.
- Users can delete multiple view mappings by selecting each row then clicking the red x.

Strip Audio Option during Raw Import
