Adding Asset Folders

Adding Asset Folders#

This example plugin creates additional folders in the asset folder, when an asset gets created.

These folders are created by default: “Export”, “Playblasts”, “Renders” and “Scenefiles” and with this plugin additional folders for “Audio” and “Reference” are added.

See the section for Single File Plugins on how to load this example.
