When you import a media you always have a popup asking you if you want touse this media as a local one or to upload it to the cloud.
This is a choice you do depending of the way work :

Use as local button : if you are the single user of your project and will not use a different computer you can keep your media as local. They are only saved on your computer.

Upload to server button : if you share your project with other users or use different computers we strongly recommend that you upload your medias

As soon as your media is imported into LiveEdit a new track is displayed.
Audio is represented by a pink track while video is a blue one.
