Tip: Drag and drop assets in the Asset View panel with your computer mouse. 

Using Asset View Across Multiple Scenes

To bulk edit assets across multiple scenes, select the scenes in the timeline. The asset panel will then reflect the assets across multiple scenes by showing the total number of an individual asset or groups across the selected scenes:

Tips and Considerations

  • Assets in Asset View are ordered with the asset that is layered in the very front of the scene at the top of the panel to the asset that is layered furthest back in a scene. 
  • Assets within a group cannot be multi selected with other assets outside the group.
