Uploading Dependencies via Author Tools

Have we got dependency issues?

Not unless you consider innovation a dependency... This post is a follow-up to Part1 on upload via the Asset Author Tools RMB menu.

Use other assets in your own

We've noticed that some authors are beginning to use store assets within their own, bigger assets. This is pretty cool because it lets us build upon each others work! It does raise a few speed bumps however. The most common issue with this is how to handle these dependent assets.

The image below shows a convenient way to upload assets with dependencies, directly from Houdini. One of the virtues of this method, is that it handles all the renaming, installing, and referencing of the dependency assets.
