Simple Path relinker application for maps, ies, hdri corona proxy and vrayproxy objects. Features are: path text replacing and copy functions. The two text fields below each section are for "original" and for "future" paths. $ stand for string. Use it to copy a map path of a selected map to the desired text field.

User interface for the maps section. Others look the same.

Bug

For everyone not having Corona installed may I suggest following change to the code:

	if CoronaBitmap != undefined then (
		for m in getClassInstances CoronaBitmap do
		(
		if m.filename!=undefined then 
			(
			if (findItem map_tmp_list m.filename) == 0 then
				(
				append map_tmp_list m.filename
				append map_list #((getFilenamePath m.filename),(getFilenameFile  m.filename), (getFilenameType  m.filename), "bitmap","unused", #()  )
				)
			)
		)
	)

and further down:

-- fn set_bitmap----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------	
fn set_bitmap	old_file new_file =
	(
	for m in getClassInstances BitmapTexture do
		(
		if m.filename == old_file do ( m.fileName=new_file)
		)
	if CoronaBitmap != undefined then (
		for m in getClassInstances CoronaBitmap do
			(
			if m.filename == old_file do ( m.fileName=new_file)
			)
		)
	)

Took me almost a year to come back to this, but finally sorting is possible. :D
Please also note, that the script was done compatible with Corona, thanks to some code from "Nik" @ the Corona Forum.

Andras could you make the headlines work please? I mean pressing "file path" above would sort items by path?

I see. May I request one additional button?
Many times after Path Editor has already re-pathed assets to a new place I insert some additional geometry.
Could this button automatically copy and re-path to the last used path the assets from newly created geometry?

The $ button

does copy the path of a selected item into the actual path field. That's like a boost for the vacuum cleaner. :)

Greetings, may i suggest to edit the V3 version

so that it behaves like in zoa v1 , no colum sorting but sorting by path as default...

It would immediately be practical as v1...

thanks

just like "Project name_##"

thank you,
