Folder of files to asset browser


#1

Just switched to R25 and miss the content browser already. Is it possible to add a folder with cinema4d files to the asset browser. In former content browser I was able to add a folder. I don’t want to make a preset library because some folder do change from time to time.

Hi Birdy, Regarding your query I don’t think there is any chance of adding a new folder to the asset browser. However, you can definitely access the content browser as it will be provided with a following update any time soon.

The content browser is no more in R25

Don’t quote me on that, as I don’t have R25, but I’d swear I’ve seen a demo (Chris Schmidt’s maybe) where he was showing off the new interface, and the asset browser was very much still here (albeit in a different place").

Given how they communicate on new regular content updates (I guess it’s easier than features updates), that’d be foolish to remove it.


#5

Not sure about a folder but you can definitely import .lib4ds and individual projects to the asset browser


#6

The “asset browser” is totally different than the “content Browser”
S24 had both, R25 only has the “asset browser”

Stick with v24 then until Maxon get their act back together.

I remember C4D as the (relatively) easy to get into 3D application. That philosophy is long gone it seems.

Forgive my ignorance, as I’m not on 24/25… but It seemed to me that anything the old content browser (legacy) could do, you could do as well (and better) in the new asset browser… including creating a new folder (category) without a problem.

What is it exactly that you’re missing?

I played with it for the last week. It took a lot of time to get my complete Content Browser into the Asset Browser.
I am quite happy with it now.
Also the new dynamic palettes is a great option.
Th app is getting better and better.
I don’t agree with Rikof though.
