Hosting and Serving Assets

Assets rendered by the Editing API are saved in a temporary location for 24 hours before being deleted. Before being deleted you must either download the assets and store them on your hard drive, server or storage location.

Similarly, files uploaded and ingested via the Ingest API are stored for use in an edit and are not suited for streaming or serving to customers.

An alternative is to use use one of the provided built in hosting or storage solutions integrated with Shotstack.

The built in integrations are called Destinations and includes a Shotstack hosting and CDN service that is provided by default to all customers.
