Setting the Source File Location
By default, when you reimport a Datasmith Scene Asset, it will look for the source file at the same location it was in the last time you imported that scene. If you change your scene in your source application and re-save or re-export it to the same location on your computer, the reimport process should automatically pick it up.
However, in some cases, you might want to keep your updated scene file separate from your original scene file. Or, you might need to reimport the scene on a different computer from the one that you last used to import the scene, and you might not have access to that original path. In these cases, you can change the path to the source file that you want to use when you reimport the Datasmith Scene Asset.
To do this:
- Double-click the Datasmith Scene Asset in the Content Browser to open it in the Asset Editor.
- If the Details panel is hidden, show it by selecting Window > Details from the main menu.
- Expand the sections to find the File Path > Source File setting:
- Click the icon, and browse to the new location of your source scene file on your computer.
- Save the Asset.
The next time you reimport the Datasmith Scene Asset, it will use the new file location you set above.
