Asset Naming[edit]

Assets are prefixed with a short acronym for their type to make identification outside of Unreal faster:

Animation Blueprint ABP_
Animation Montage AM_
Aim Offset AO_
Blueprint BP_
Data Asset ClassName(DataAsset)_

  • Asset source files such as .psd or .blend should be suffixed with _Src. For example: SM_Prop_House_1stry_01_Src.blend
