    • How to update your published widgets?
    • Preliminary requirement
      1. WidgetCast v2.02
      2. Original saved projects
    • Steps
      1. Open previously saved custom widget projects on WidgetCast v2.02.
      2. Check your project to see if it contains any components listed as below:
      - 2.1. If your project includes “Video Channel”, you need to re-select the video style in the component property panel to update it.
      - 2.2. If your project includes “popVideo Composer”, you need to delete the original composer, and add a new one to edit all content inside.
      3. When you have confirmed that #2 is finished, you can save the project to replace the older version.
      4. For exporting as Reallusion-hosting widgets, you should select the original published widget in the “Manage” panel, and press “replace”. Then, select the updated project to replace the older version.
      5. For exporting as Self-hosting widgets, you should re-deploy the associated files to replace the older version.
