Post-processes scenes after import.


Imported scenes can be automatically modified right after import by setting their Custom Script Import property to a tool script that inherits from this class.

The _post_import callback receives the imported scene's root node and returns the modified version of the scene. Usage example:

@tool # Needed so it runs in editor.
extends EditorScenePostImport

# This sample changes all node names.
# Called right after the scene is imported and gets the root node.
func _post_import(scene):
    # Change all node names to "modified_[oldnodename]"
    return scene # Remember to return the imported scene

func iterate(node):
    if node != null:
        node.name = "modified_" + node.name
        for child in node.get_children():




_post_import ( Node scene ) virtual


get_source_file ( ) const

Object _post_import ( Node scene ) virtual
