Importing Point Cloud Assets

You can initialize import of new assets using either of the two methods below:

  • Simply drag-and-drop supported file format to your Content Browser

  • Select Import from the Content Browser and navigate to the desired file

Once you initialize the import, an import wizard dialog will appear where you can specify how you want your cloud imported.

Async Import

By default, the plugin will use asynchronous importing to allow you to keep using the editor as the process is taking place. A non-invasive progress box will appear in the bottom-right corner of the screen, as shown below:

The process can be cancelled at any moment, and more than 1 asset can be imported at the same time.
