Very long waiting time when switching platforms

Hi + thanks for the great plugin!

I'm encountering up to 30 minutes of loading times when switching between mobile and desktop platforms since adding the plugin. I'm wondering if this might have something to do with the custom UI you use for doodle studio? is there a way to slim down doodle studio somehow (disabling the custom UI?)

Also I am wondering if there's ways to optimize the size of each .asset animation file?

Cheers!

I don't think there is a way to crop extra pixels necessarily but you can convert them to sprite sheets, open them in photoshop or whatever then crop them there. Now that I think about it that might get tricky if your sprites are animated cos now you gotta think about keeping the centerpoint exactly in place...

Check out this thread where we were talking about packing textures. Fernando made a small script that acted similarly to the doodle animator for me although it doesn't have the api that doodle files have natively. https://itch.io/t/305328/import-settings-dropdown-for-ds-files

I've been using ds for a while now but haven't noticed the hanging when switching build platforms (going from android to html5 pretty often) so I can't help with that one sorry.
