FBX's animations are not imported if overwriting FBX file from File Explorer

Asset and Scene Management



Priority: 7Not yet prioritized for a release


Severity: 4Minor or cosmetic issue

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download and create new project
2. Import NotAnimated.fbx
3. Change name of Animated.fbx to NotAnimated.fbx
4. Overwrite imported fbx with renamed fbx in File Explorer

Expected results: After overwriting fbx file Unity should import all changes.

Actual results: After overwriting Unity imports just geometry. Animations are not imported.

Note: Reimport, reimport all doesn't work. Deleting library and fbx's meta file forces to update fbx file
