I'm working on a relatively large project and have several blend files with assets in addition to blend files with scenes. My folder structure is set up like below:
- Asset #1 - Asset1.blend - [textures] - Asset #2 - Asset2.blend - [textures] - ..Etc
- Scene1.blend - Scene2.blend - ..Etc
I need to be able to transfer all of these between computers so I'd like to keep using relative paths for textures in each of the asset files if I can.
When I link Asset 1 into
Scene1.blend, however, the textures used in Asset 1 are missing. I can only presume this is because Blender is searching for the files using the relative paths listed in
Asset1.blend, but using
Scene1.blend as the "root" location.
Is there a way to make sure linked assets use the linked file's directory when searching for textures?
If not, should all asset textures be packed? Should there be one master folder with all textures that can be relinked easily with
Find Missing Files? Or is there a different/better way to approach this and structure these files?
