public static void AddObjectToAsset(Object objectToAdd, string path);

Parameters

objectToAddObject to add to the existing asset.
pathFilesystem path to the asset.

Description

Please note that you should only add assets to '.asset' assets, imported models or texture assets for example will lose their data.

All paths are relative to the project folder, for example: "Assets/MyTextures/hello.png". Note:

You can not add GameObjects; use PrefabUtility instead.

using UnityEngine;
using UnityEditor;

public class CreateMaterialExample : MonoBehaviour { [MenuItem("GameObject/Create Material")] static void CreateMaterial() { // Create a simple material asset

Material material = new Material(Shader.Find("Specular")); AssetDatabase.CreateAsset(material, "Assets/MyMaterial.mat");

// Add an animation clip to it AnimationClip animationClip = new AnimationClip(); animationClip.name = "My Clip"; AssetDatabase.AddObjectToAsset(animationClip, material);

// Reimport the asset after adding an object. // Otherwise the change only shows up when saving the project AssetDatabase.ImportAsset(AssetDatabase.GetAssetPath(animationClip));

// Print the path of the created asset Debug.Log(AssetDatabase.GetAssetPath(material)); } }
