Clipbins are used for storing clips for preview, download or final purchase. You can create as many Clipbins as you need, perhaps one for each project you are working on. You can also e-mail Clipbins to colleagues. Clipbins are saved in your account, so you can save clips for client approval or project testing. You can create multiple Clipbins for different projects or subjects, and add clips to them as you browse the site. To purchase clips that are in your Clipbin, you will first need to add them to your cart.
A Default Clipbin is available from the panel on the left sidebar. You can add clips to your Default Clipbin, however you must register or sign-in to access the Clipbin Manager which allows you to save, organize, rename, delete and email a Clipbin.
On the left sidebar you will see the Clipbin Panel. Here you can see clips added to your default clipbin. If you create multiple clipbins, it is necessary to Make Active your clipbin to have it viewable in the Clipbin Panel. When a Clipbin is Active, it will appear in the panel. The Add To Clipbin, Delete From Clipbin, and Action tools will work for the Active Clipbin.
To view your Clipbins, click the Clipbin name in the Clipbin Panel click ‘Clipbin Manager’ below the “Clipbin” panel on the left sidebar and select the Clipbin you wish to view.
Add Clips to a Clipbin
To add a clip to a Clipbin from the Search Results page, you can drag-and-drop the thumbnail over the Clipbin, or hover over the thumbnail and click the “Add to Clipbin” icon to add the clip to the current active Clipbin. The Add to Clipbin icon is also available on the Popup Movie and the Cart. To add multiple clips from a search, hover over the thumbnail and check the box on the right corner. The border of the thumbnail will turn green, then select another clip. You can then drag-and-drop the selected clips with the green border into the desired Clipbin.
