The Gem Catalog

The Catalog contains information on everything you write and identify within your Gem script, organized by asset types. Sequences, Branch Points, and Characters with dialogue are automatically given catalog entries when they are created. Each unique asset is automatically assigned an alphanumeric ID tag.

Catalog categories are listed on the left-hand side.

You can integrate media with your assets by clicking the ‘Add Media’ button in the upper-left corner of the catalog page. Clicking ‘Remove’ will delete the asset from the catalog.

Adding More Items
