3ds Max several network path
« on: July 12, 2018, 09:39:23 AM »
Hi Guys !
Thanks again for this great update.
The new path of the preset change like the 3.0 Railclone update.
We decide to install the preset in a network path ( for us it's a good news because everyone use the same preset up to date )
But unlike the railclone, there is so much maps path :



And everytime we open a scene there is a 3ds max message :




I can copy all the maps in one folder but every time there is an update i must redo the task.
Is there another work around ?

Thank you,
Rémi

Hi Rémi,

Thanks for your kind words !
We decided to separate the maps in different folders, because in this way each library can be handled as an independent package, which includes scenes, materials and libraries.
This structure is more manageable for Update Manager and future changes in the Library Browser.

But regarding to the Max message, i'm afraid there is not much we can do.

I cannot find any option to disable it, and it seems other Max users have the same problem:

A workaround would be to create a script to copy all maps in an unique folder, and run it periodically.

Hi Carlos,

Thank you for the answer.
I understand the reason to separate each packages. I think its the best way.
Yes i search for remove this warning but not find any for the moment.
I tried to put maps in a unique folder but when i do that i have got this message in Forest Library Browser windows.


I think the best solution for now is to put the library in the same folder for each workstation ( c:\FPPLibrary\ )
- No problem with max message
- No problem with Library Browser
Like old version of forest :D

But when there is an library update i must copy to each workstation.
I think it will be possible to create a script to deploy this :) .

Thank you,
Rémi

Hi, you can disable the "Add Paths" dialog setting checkTexturePaths=0 in forestpack.ini. The file is stored here:

C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsmax\<max version>\ENU\en-US\plugcfg
