Copying and Mapping External Resource Files

After you add folders to the External Resources window pane, you can copy any of the files to your project, mapping them to the source files at the same time.

This is a different process than that of importing files, which you can do elsewhere in Flare. Files that are brought into a project using a traditional import process can be connected to the source file, but only in one direction (i.e., files can be updated from the source to the imported file in the project). On the other hand, files that are copied from the External Resources window pane can be connected via mappings to the source files in two directions (i.e., files can be updated from the source to the copied file or from the copied file to the source).
