Solved Add Database to the Asset Browser

How can I add a database to the "Databases" list in the Asset Browser preferences?

I would like to programmatically (C++) add a database, enable it and force the Asset Browser to update to display that database content. Is this possible to do yet?


Hey @kbar,

thank you for reaching out to us. How to add asset databases and others things are all explained in the Asset API Handbook. Your specific case is dealt with in the example Add User Databases.

You can technically also take a route via the Asset Browser preferences in the Cinema 4D Preferences dialog and the GUI gadget showing these database entries, completely ignoring the Asset API, but I would not recommend doing this.
