  • .csv

  • .svg

  • .aif

  • .wav

  • .mov

The following codecs are supported for video formats:

  • vp8, vp9

‚ÄčGoogle Sheets can be used as an alternative to .csv on the Spreadsheet Atom if preferred.

Example usage:

  1. Right click in the Assets Window > Google Drive Spreadsheet.

  2. Enter the url of your sheet into the dialogue window (you can copy/ paste this from your browser).

  3. To update any changes to the Sheet right click on the Google Sheet Asset > Reload.

Link Sharing should be set to On and either Public on the web or Anyone with the link.

The Google Sheets integration is something we're calling an Asset Provider behind the scenes. The idea is that we (or third parties) can hook into other APIs and build out other providers like Twitter, Facebook, Leap Motion, a midi controller etc. Basically a door in for any data input.
