    I keep seeing new "SettingsAssetBuild " folders getting added to my project after doing a build. For example:

    upload_2023-12-16_16-17-29.png

    Is there a setting that's creating these? I'm up to 3 of these folders now, and I'm not sure whether there's any danger to deleting them.

    Hi @dgoyette !

    This is on purpose these are copied during the build (cf this class) but they are supposed to be removed after the build (cf OnPostprocessBuild method).

    I gave a try on my side and can confirm these are automatically removed.

    Can you specify which version of Unity and Live Capture you are using ?

    Anyways, no danger to remove them manually after the build.

    Okay, it looks like this is probably working properly, and the reason I'm seeing some sticking around was probably due to me killing a builds manually every once in a while. I can now see that these get created temporarily with every build, but also get removed by the end of the build.

    Thanks for the clarification that I can delete these, too. I'll go ahead and do that, and probably add them to my git ignore file too.
