Color Factory can be configured to store the output directly to an Index Manager archive. Files are transferred to the Index Manager server using the FWP protocol.
Where: Channel | Input & Output Options | Index Manager Output tab
To store the channel's output files directly to an Index Manager archive, enable Index Manager output in the dropdown list and then use the Browse button to choose the server and list the available archives on that server. Because Color Factory transfers files to Index Manager over the FWP protocol, it makes no difference if the Index Manager is located on the local network or elsewhere in a WAN, as long as FWP traffic is allowed through any firewalls that have been set up in the system.
After selecting the Index Manager server and archive, click on the Browse button in the Archive folder field to choose the folder inside the archive where the output files should be stored.
Note: When Index Manager Output is used, this option overrides the output folder that is set in the general channel settings.
