Excluding File Types and Folders from Paks
The Converter tool has an option to exclude any files/folders that start with an underline when creating a Pak file. However it would be really handy if you could actually specify a list of files, folders and file types to exclude. This list could be stored in a text file and used by the converter tool.

For example, the list might look something like this...

Data/Temp
engine.pak
*.psd

In this example, when creating a Pak file of the Data folder, the Converter tool will ignore the Data/Temp folder, the engine.pak file and also ignore all files with the .psd extension.

It's painful when dealing with thousands of asset files and trying to sort through what to include and what to exclude. Using the underline is also a problem as it affects the alphabetical sorting of files in Windows explorer, so related .gfx and .psd files (for example) don't stay together.
