Asset Manager

The Asset Manager lets you manage places and bulk import assets into your experience, including images, meshes, packages, and audio.

Asset Folders

Assets are organized within folders based on their type. You can switch between grid view and list view by clicking the view toggle button.

Importing Assets

The bulk import tool is ideal for importing up to 50 files in one batch.

Imported assets enter the moderation queue and are only visible to you within their respective folder and within the Creations tab of the Toolbox. Assets pending moderation display a yellow clock icon, while assets that fail moderation display a red exclamation icon.

Images

You can import images in .png, .jpg, .tga, or .bmp format for use as textures/decals on parts, UI elements, mesh textures, textures for custom materials, textures for special effects, and more.

Meshes

You can import meshes in either .fbx or .obj format. See Meshes for guidelines on importing and working with meshes in Studio.

Audio

You can import audio assets that you are certain you have permission to use in either .mp3 or .ogg format. If you're uncertain whether you have permission to use an audio file, the Creator Marketplace has a variety of free-to-use audio, including more than 100,000 professionally-produced sound effects. See Audio Assets for details.
