I need to rename some folders and files in the asset bin because the names contain spaces and periods which may become problematic when moving the assets into PerForce.
To update all paths and references, the renaming has to be done in Studio. When you rename a folder, all wav files in that folder will also neet to get their metadata updated.
However, this operation seems really, really slow. When a folder is renamed, Studio will freeze and ‘hourglass’ for several minutes or more without any indication that it’s doing something (except new files appearing in the PerForce changelist). Then it activates briefly, only to freeze again for a second delay equally long as the previous.
Why are these multi-file PerForce operations so slow to do in Studio?
