There are a few different ways to create your custom Media Script.

To start a new Media Script, first hover over the "+" sign in the Media Scripts tab of the Media Bar and click New Media Script.

This will open a window for you to type in an ID and a Name

It is easy to add items to a Media Script. You can copy and paste or drag and drop any media into your Media Script within OnCue.

Double click on your Media Script to open a new pane or hit the Sidebar button. This opens a new pane next to the media bar.

Within the Media Bar you can now select any page, designation, or clip and drag it to the Media Script in the Sidebar.

When you are finished simply close the pane.

If you know the IDs, you can also add them by right-clicking.

Then just add your IDs.

If you have a media script from another case with the same IDs, you can import a text file or XML file.

You can create new clips of an Audiovisual in a Media Script without having to create them in the Audiovisuals tab first.

Right-click on your list and select Add -> Clips

This will create a new non-synced video clip under your main file in the Audiovisuals tab.

You can create new Designations in Media Script without them having to be part of a Designation List.

Right-click and select Add -> Designations

You can open the designation editor to fine tune the designation you added, just hit F7.
