The collection editor contains features that are dependent on the videos being transcoded. If a video was added that had not finished transcoding, you would be unable to do the following:

  • scrub the video to specify a start time

  • grab a poster frame for a thumbnail on the scene menu

  • see the total duration of videos in the collection

  • preview the video associated with the button

Also, if there was a problem transcoding the video after it was added to the collection, you would have a video linked from a collection menu that potentially could never playback. By preventing videos from being added to collections until they finish transcoding, we are preventing the client from having a bad experience.
