Digital Assets Losing Parameters When Moving Directories

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

We're having a major problem at work. A couple of our artists have OBJ-level digital assets that they've created, with lots of custom parameters. These digital assets are installed in their current hip files. When we use the Operator Type Manager to copy or duplicate the asset to another directory/version up, the new asset loses all its custom parameters, even after using Save Node Type and Match Current Definition. We've tried everything we can think of, but once we try to copy or duplicate the asset, all the parameters get deleted. Has anyone else run into this? And what's the solution?

Thanks,

 

~Chris

without seeing the assets it's hard to say - but my first guess is that the custom parameters are actually spare parameters - I'd check that first.

Checked on my asset, copy in new scene saves all changes.
Need to see your asset.

Sorry for the panic, Michael was right, they were spare parameters. Some team members weren't sure the difference between "Edit Parameter Interface" and "Type Properties" menus. Once I figured out they were trying to add parameters to their HDAs through the Edit Parameter Interface, I explained the difference then added a couple lines of code to our publication system to make sure the parameters would stick no matter which method they chose :) Whew!
