Forest pack missing assets - user app data folder
« on: July 17, 2018, 11:12:26 AM »
Hello,

I am rendering an animation with forest pack in 3DS Max and back burner, but I am having trouble with missing assets.

When forest pack is installed it puts all the assets into for example 'user1' local app data folder

C:\Users\user1\AppData\Local\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro

So if I log into the same machine under a different user for example 'user2', it will not detect any of the assests as they are installed in the 'user1' app data folder.

So what I then need to do is reinstall forest pack and download all the assets through the download manager on 'user 2', and 'user3' etc as we have mutlitple users using the same machines.

So that they each have the assets in thier local app data folder.

Why are the assets not saved in c:/programs....forest pack folder so they are visible no matter what user is logged in?

Hope that makes sense.

Feel free to install it anywhere using registry changes.
We have a guide for networked paths but that can be modified with local paths too.

Hope that helps
