FP library meshes "Rock S3" wont network render
« on: March 31, 2021, 08:40:01 PM »
Hi all,
My Max contains several FP systems :
- most systems use instanced megascan meshes and render well
- one system uses objects from the FP "Rock S3" library. It renders well locally but renders black over the network.
Its textures are located on "C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Local\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\lib\3D\Stones\maps"
so I guess that's why the render node wont find it.
As they dont have the texture on their C: drive and the "external files user path" are missing on those render node Max instance.

Is it a rendernode install issue?
How can I fix it please?

Hi. Seems like libraries are not yet installed on Your render node.

You need to install them on it. Hopefully this documentation page will help.

Thanks Rokas,
I copied the folders on the "C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Local\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\lib\3D\Stones\maps" rendernode's folder,
the textures are present but it still renders black and diplays an error message.

can You check if render node "3dsMax.ini" file has the directory with where the maps are located.

Yes that's exactly what I did in the meantime, and now it works!
Thanks Rokas.

But it's really tedious, why cant FP do all those things for me?
I guess everybody is network rendering...

It does this most of the times automatically. I am not sure why it did not do it this time.
