Assets are items you use to present content in your interactive experiences.

Collections are items you use to present a set of assets in your experience. Think of collections as assets whose job is to contain other assets.

Adding content to an experience

The Content Library contains a list of media files and folders you can use in your experience.

When you add content into the scene it becomes an asset. When you add multiple content files to a scene, it (optionally) becomes a collection.

You can create assets and collections in different ways:

  • drag the content you want to use from the Windows Explorer into the scene – the appropriate asset is created and the content is added to the Content Library
  • drag the content you want to use from the Content Library into the scene – the appropriate asset is created
  • add an asset or collection to the scene using the Assets Panel or the Collections Panel or the Insert menu by right-clicking on an empty are of the scene and assign content to itby double clicking on the created asset.

For collections, you can also reference a folder instead of multiple files.
