Asset Inspector

When you click on a thumbnail, the Asset Inspector will appear on the right side of the screen.

The Asset Inspector contains details about the asset, including:

  • Asset Preview Images

  • The Asset’s Name

  • Which Kit the Asset is from

  • The Polycount, Scale (Height), and Material count of the Asset

Downloading an Asset

When you're ready to download, choose your desired texture size for the asset. You can see the file size of each option within the Texture Size drop-down menu.

*Note: The Asset Inspector defaults to the Texture Size set in your Software Settings.

After selecting the texture size, click the “Download” button at the bottom of the Asset Inspector. The Download Bar will become a progress bar. Cancel the download at any time by clicking on the “X” on the progress bar.

Download one asset at a time, waiting for each one to complete before starting a new download. Creating a large download queue can cause downloads and imports to fail.

Remove an asset from the Download Queue by clicking on the thumbnail to open the Asset Inspector and clicking the “X” next to “In Queue”.

Importing an Asset into your 3D Software

When the asset finishes downloading, the progress bar becomes the Import button.

Click Import once to open the asset in your 3D software.

Ensure that your 3D software is open and the Cargo Connect Plugin is connected or activated.
Cargo plugin connection steps vary by 3D Software.

While Cargo will show that the import is complete, there may be a delay while your 3D software renders the asset. Switch over to your 3D Software project to monitor when the asset has fully imported.
