If an asset is being used multiple times in the stage manager, is there a better way of updating that reference without manually updating every path 1 by 1?

Thanks all

You could do this with opchange from a textport.

opchange -p /stage <current path> <new path>

This should check all the string parms on all the nodes in the graph and do a search and replace.

You can also provide -p with the path to a specific node, if you have other places you want to keep the original path.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Kym, I'm surprised there isn't functionality to do this in the stage manager itself.

We can make a tool to update that though, so thanks for pointing in the right direction!
