Volocity may not always be able to adopt data automatically, one example of this is when data is transferred from Mac to Windows PC. The formatting of the tranfer media e.g. portable HD used may not be native to Windows therefore Volocity can only link to the source file. If the file has not been adopted then you will not be able to perform permanent changes which include creating an image sequence from the original file and cropping data.

To adopt the data in Volocity please follow the steps outlined below:

- Select the dataset thumbnail in the library window

- Go to Actions menu > Adopt items

- Volocity will search for the source file/s and adopt the data so that it becomes part of the Volocity library.
