Switcher Cloud provides online storage that allows users to upload images and videos to more easily access as assets in Switcher productions. Think of it as similar to Dropbox or Google Drive, but it's specifically for your Switcher Studio account. 

There are two primary functions to use Switcher Cloud:

  1. Adding assets to Switcher Cloud
  2. Inserting Switcher Cloud assets into the Switcher Studio app

This article walks through the various ways to use each function.
