Hi there,

Is there any way to access Corona Material Library textures as a relative path?
I'm sure there are a lot of people using tex folders in a server to access from different computers, for instance, If I access from a Mac and Windows the textures from Corona Material Library become missing.
Should be optional in Corona Material Library installation define the tex folder or even better bring a folder we can add easily in the new Asset Browser.

Anyway for now as a workaround I just would like to know if possible at least to have an option where I can have the Corona Material Library textures as relative path and not full path, therefore I could set it up in preferences paths.

Thank you
Have a good week.

Use "Save Project with Assets..."

Hi burnin.
This is not a handy solution because I change computers constantly and then any time I switch/add materials I will need to "save the project with asset" and this will be hard for my all workflow structure.
But anyway thank you for your suggestion.
I will hope the Corona team could give feedback on this problem for future releases. Like giving the option of where to save the "tex" folder when installing Corona Library.

Thank you.

Hello,

this is unfortunately not possible at the moment. We will try to discuss this with our core team as it is something that's been bugging us for quite some time.

Thanks,
Jan

Use "Content Browser" then and simply make 'New Preset Folder' copying materials from Library. (To locate it: RMC > Show in Explorer)
