Instance Filtering

You can tell Argon to ignore certain instances by their name, class or path. Additionally you can specify properties that should be ignored. All of this can be done by specifying Syncback Settings in the *.project.json file. Here is an example:

"name": "Project",
"tree": {
"$path": "src"
"syncback": {
"ignoreNames": ["Map", "Models"],
"ignoreClasses": ["Part", "Camera"],
"ignoreProperties": ["Size", "Position"]
