articy:draft - General

articy:draft importer - Unity Plugin

** Important **
If you use a source control system that works with locking files, like perforce for example, you need to make sure that all files in the Generated/ folder are accessible and that the plugin can create a folder in the Asset/ root folder before installing the plugin.
  • Improved: The Generated/ folder is split into actual generated content and user assets.
  • Improved: With the new Generated/ folder, the plugin will ask if the user wants to put the Generated folder on the ignore list for him. Only works with collab and git at this time.
  • Improved: The plugin will automatically relocate your existing Generated/ folder into the new structure. Please read the Important above!.
