Description

In a headless editor instance we will not be able to send toasts to the user, and we should not notify slate. The Sequencer Tools function library calls MovieSceneToolHelpers::ImportFBXCameraToExisting always passing true to bNotifySlate. This should be changed to account for cases when we cannot notify slate.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create a sequence with a camera and animate it
  2. Export the cameras animation to an FBX
  3. Rename the camera
  4. Create a python script that imports a the FBX back onto a sequence (see linked UDN)
  5. Run that script in a headless editor (see linked UDN for example command line)

RESULT

The editor crashes trying the get the slate notification manager
