Preview the contents of an asset

You can preview the contents of an asset before you actually create one. This is useful when using the Include Hierarchy option in the Create Advanced Asset Options to confirm you are including the actual hierarchy you want.

To preview the contents of an asset

  1. Select the objects you want to place in an asset.
  2. Select Assets > Advanced Assets > Create > .

    The Create Advanced Asset Options window appears.

  3. Set Operation to Preview contents.
  4. Select the node hierarchy to include in your asset.
  5. Click Apply or Apply and Close.

    Any objects that would be placed in the asset are selected in the scene.

NotePerforming a preview operation changes your selection. If you want to preview multiple creation options on the same original selection, you should undo each preview operation before changing options and previewing again.
