Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a way to list/find all external files that a given scene is using. For example, if a scene is using some textures, references, and geo caches, is there a way to list those file paths from within Python or MEL?

Thanks!

1. reference editor window and fileTextureManager.mel help you show paths used in the scenes, the later even help you move or copy your file textures to a more appropriate paths
2. If your intention is to get all those files together, use archieve under file menu

Ah, Archive Scene is just what I was looking for. Not sure how I didn't see that. Thanks! :applause:

that is gold. I didn't even know that existed, I have scripts searching for all assets and it's too long, this tip is worth money! thanks

You're welcome :beer:

In fact, there's a command, sceneEditor, that from what I can tell is supposed to do just that with a GUI.

Thing is, the command seems broken, as I can't get it to work on Maya 2012 (command is recognized but flags are broken)
