Getting rid of bad paths
show user profile  Zman
So There's this new tool called Asset tracking which is very nice for quickly locating the missing textures in a scene ...
But how can I quickly DELETE them without manually finding each one in the material editor in order to remove them ?

Press shift+t and right click on your path and choose "strip path."

yeah, Shift+T brings the asset tracking window.
But when I choose "strip path" nothing happens and my problem remains ...

Yeah, I've had that. Try saving and reloading. It might have worked. Else, obviously you can merge into a new scene...

Quickest way has to be Relink Bitmaps.

Just run it and there's an option to strip missing paths and/or delete all missing bitmaps, 2 clicks and your done.

Never had success with the Asset browser either, found it to be quite unpredictable and unreliable most of the time.

I dont want to RE LINK bitmaps.

I just want to delete them from existence in my scene !

Why is there no simple button - " DELETE BITMAP FROM SCENE" ???


Edit: well I jumped ahead and didnt see you wrote there's a "delete missing bitmaps" option there.
Ill check it now :)

Because for over a decade people have been downloading scripts to get common sense, user friendly functional buttons ;)
