Production Groups help sort and organize your assets within the Switcher Studio app. While your camera angles cannot be sorted (they will always appear at the top of the Sources Window in the order that they were connected), you can sort all of your images, pre-recorded videos, multiview templates, and overlays into individual groups as needed. This sorting can be especially useful if you produce a lot of different productions with their own unique assets.
