Unable to find installed comps anywhere

#1

Post by ringkun » Sat May 18, 2019 1:13 am

I feel like I'm missing some obvious detail because I tried to look in to every single folder associated with Fusion and I couldn't find anything. How do you even get/use comps?

Here are the comps/templates I installed that I can't find

  • Comps/SirEdric/NeonBar.comp
  • Comps/SirEdric/Blocks_on_a_Plane.comp
  • Comps/Templates/UT_Anonymous_Water.comp

Where are they?

Select the "File > Open" menu item in Fusion:

In the "Open File" dialog click on the "Path Maps" section on the left sidebar. This will expand a list of Fusion PathMap folder locations you can browse to.

Select the "Reactor:" PathMap entry. This will navigate to the "AllData:/Reactor/" PathMap folder on your harddisk.

You will see three folders named "Atoms", "Deploy", and "System". Open the "Deploy" folder. Then open the "Comps" folder.

FWIW, on MacOS this is the full absolute path to the Reactor Comps folder:

reactor-comps-3.png

Now you should be able to access the comps you have installed.

Note: In the next update to Reactor, that should be out soon (sometime between a week to a month from now), it will be possible to access the Comps folder like this:

Thank you. I would never figure that out myself.
