Proper way to make a self-contained HDA?

Recommended Posts

I know HDA can embed extra files and reference them by "opdef:" syntax.  But is there a way to automatically convert all the external references to embedded files when creating HDA?

Now I need to manually find all the external references, change them to "opdef:" format, and embed all the files. And I never know if I miss one. How could I know my HDA is self-contained? Is there "Pre-Flight" feature for HDA?

A single material can reference a lot of textures files. Manually embedding them one by one seems rather silly.

There is a Python method to find external references, and a HScript one. Now you'll know when you miss one. Someone else might be able to help you with automatically converting them to embedded references.
