Assets Window

Windows > Assets Window

The Assets Window is where you can manage your Compositions and add external assets.

To import an asset either:

  • File > Import Asset...
  • Double click in the Assets Window.
  • Right click in an empty part of the Window and select from the following options:
    • Import Assets...
    • Import Scene...
    • Import Image Smart Folder...
    • Import Google Sheet...
  • Drag external assets from your filesystem into the window.

Dragging images from your filesystem into the Viewport will also add those assets to the Assets Window.
