This special medium is not a medium by itself, but a link to another medium defined in the scene. It allows referencing the same medium multiple times through different medium names. It is especially useful with packaged libraries, whose media cannot be renamed. A medium link to the library medium can be created instead.
The target medium is referenced by its name. A library qualified name has the form library_name::medium_name, such as in the example below.
- The name of the scene medium to point at, or a library qualified medium name
