The Structure of a Plugin
The StarVR One Plugin is designed with a Source folder. The folder contains the required directories with the module source code for the plug-in.
The plug-in also contains a Binaries folder where the compiled code for the plug-in resides. A temporary build product file is also stored under the plug-in directory in a separate intermediate folder.
A Content folder containing the Asset files specific to the StarVR One Plugin is also available within the structure. Configuration files should be placed using the same conventions as outlined:
- Engine plug-in: [ProjectRoot]/Plugins/[PluginName].ini
For the StarVR One Plugin to be found, it must be located in the designated search path in the project folder.
