Asset Importers


To reproduce:

2. In main toolbar, go to Support > Dependencies window
3. Drag the Cube.fbx file (Project window) to object picker in Dependencies window

Expected: unused materials are not included in the dependency list (Unused.mat)
Actual: unused materials are included in the dependency list

Reproduced in: 2017.4.25f1, 2018.3.12f1, 2019.1.0f2, 2019.2.0a11

Note: EditorUtility.CollectDependencies does not return the unused dependencies, however it does include duplicate paths and sizeable amount of questionable dependencies
