project export and file path optimization




  • Official comment

    Hi all,

    We've improved the workflow for this as of 2.8.0, it's explained here:

    A HeavyM project is now stored in a special folder, with an asset subfolder. An option allows you to collect all your assets in this folder and in the event that a file still goes missing, you can locate it from the interface. To transfer a project to another computer, you simply have to move the project folder!

    Have a nice day.

    Hi rook,

    Thanks for the suggestion and sorry for the inconvenience. We're actually working on this kind of feature at the moment, hopefully for HeavyM 2.8!

    In the meantime, you can already transfer your project if you put all your media files in the same folder as your project file (without subfolders). Indeed, HeavyM looks for the files at their original absolute path, but it also searches in the folder where your associated .hm file is located. So if you put all of them in the same folder, HeavyM will always find them.

    Hope that can help for now.

    Have a nice day,
