Question: Hi Justin! Would you mind describing exactly how JSFX resolves its imports? It seems to search fx folder recursively, but also ignores path "part" that doesn't exist? Thanks :)

    If you specify a relative_path, e.g a/b/c.jsfx-inc: it first looks for path_of_calling_code/a/b/c.jsfx-inc, then path_of_calling_code/b/c.jsfx-inc then path_of_calling_code/c.jsfx-inc.

    If you specify a filename only, e.g. c.jsfx-inc, it first looks in path_of_calling_code/c.jsfx-inc.

    If the above paths are not found, then it does a recursive search of the JSFX Effects directory for the file in question, ignoring any relative path. The recursive search is a bit random in the order, if you have foo/c.jsfx-inc and foo/bar/way/down/deep/c.jsfx-inc, it could return either depending on the filesystem. (IMO this isn't ideal, it would be nicer if it always returned foo/c.jsfx-inc in that case, but alas...)
