Automatic Folder Update?

I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong in Fmod, but this was something I noticed, I couldn’t get a project to update the file directory or repository for my assets every time that folder was updated and I opened my Fmod project.

I’d have to redrag the file folders, new ones, in manually every time.

Is there a setting that changes this? Or could we hope for a functionality like this in the future.

Hello Jesse,

Thanks for getting in contact.

When you say you need to redrag the file folders, are you referring to manually placing assets into the Assets folder in the project folder in Explorer/Finder?

If you are manually placing audio files into the Explorer/Finder fodler, when you open the Assets Browser in FMOD Studio, these will appear with a “#New!” tag.

You can click the dropdown menu on the loupe/magnifying glass icon at the top of the Asset Browser and choose “Filter By Unimported Assets” to display a list of only those assets not imported into FMOD Studio yet. Then you can select all and right click, choosing “Import” to bulk import these new assets. There currently isn’t a feature available to do this automatically, unfortunately.

I hope that helps.

Many thanks,

Thank you so much! That was very helpful. Hopefully that’s a feature that can come in the future, at the present time this is a nice workaround though, simple and easy. :slight_smile:
