Editing and Refreshing Assets

Besides CGA and scene files, the CityEngine does not provide asset and image editing capabilities. This means that you can work with your favorite tools and leverage the full power of these tools without the need to learn an application specific editor.

Since the workspace is mapped to a file system location, you may access the files on the file system as usual. Remember that if you change files and folders outside CityEngine, you have to refresh the CityEngine's internal representation. Choose File→Refresh Workspace or hit F5. Alternatively, you can assign your preferred application to a file type by selecting Open With→Other from the Navigator context menu. Once the assignment has been made, you can open files of that type in the preferred application by right clicking on a file and selecting Open in the Navigator context menu.

Choose External programs and select the preferred program from the list.
