Import a Generative Series from Highlight

Foundation now supports importing Hightlight’s Limited and Open generative series for code-based generative art on Ethereum and Base.

At this time, the series must be imported to a gallery and is therefore only supported for creators who are allowlisted in a gallery or exhibition or own a gallery.


Create your generative series on Highlight

If you haven’t already, create a generative series on Highlight

To import your generative series, it’ll need to be within these guidelines:

  • Either Limited generative series (Fixed price or Dutch auction sale type) or Open generative series (For fixed price sale type only).
  • Direct Minting enabled.
  • Deployed on the Ethereum Mainnet or Base Mainnet.
  • Minted-out generative series can’t be imported.
  • Please note that the preferred preview image resolution aspect ratio is 1200px x 700px.

When you enter a collection name on Highlight, that will be the name of your generative series. Before you deploy to mainnet, we suggest deploying to testnet before officially deploying to mainnet.

Once your generative series is deployed correctly, return here to import your contract.

Click the Create button, select Highlight, click Import +, and sign to continue. Foundation uses this signature to verify that you own this Ethereum address.

Add your drop to a gallery or exhibition. You can only import Highlight generative series to a gallery or exhibition. Contracts deployed on Base can only be added to a Base gallery or Exhibition and contracts deployed on Ethereum can only be added to a gallery or exhibition created on Ethereum.

You will be asked to let Foundation update the payout address when you import your generative series to a gallery. This is so the curator can get paid for the mints of the drop. A unique Splits address will be used to get both you and the curator paid.

Design your generative series

Once your generative series is imported to Foundation, you can customize the description, logo, and cover image.

Curators can also add your generative series to an exhibition or spotlight it on their gallery's homepage.
