Cool topic (^^)
One question does the computer have to be a computer or can it be a laptop?
If it can be a laptop then does the laptop have to be a apple laptop or can it be Windows?

Doesn’t matter, as long as you have iTunes and a USB port.

Do you need to know js to edit the json file?

ITunes will work, but if u have iExplorer or iFunBox, it will take way less time to access images or other large files.

No javascript needed :slight_smile:
Just make sure to use quotes and close your brackets

So about that thing I found, I just saw in the first post but they never talked about it, is the scenes. This is in the code of the app if that is the case, but there is no way in the editor to access them. I think this is the “rooms/layers” they were talking about.

And here is where this topic started

iTunes 12.7 doesn’t have the Apps menu anymore. It’s just called File Sharing now.

How do u control which scenes the objects r in?

At the moment, since it’s not a complete feature, I believe you need to do it manually in the file.
