Custom Library - Deploy to multiple artists?
« on: December 08, 2015, 07:22:58 PM »
So I've built a Custom Library for our team and set it up on a network share. How can I deploy this setup automatically to the other artists, without them having to go into the Library browser > Preferences, and manually adding the network path?

I'm guessing there is a .ini file storing this somewhere, but I haven't been able to find it yet. Bonus points if there's MaxScript command to set it up :)

Thanks!

Hi!

The Library Paths section of Forest Pack and RailClone's  Library Browser holds the location of the different libraries. The user can add manually their own libraries under File - Preferences ... Library Paths section and by Add... the path where the .xml files are stored. Or you can add them manually to the user’s registry:


Code: [Select]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\LibraryDir]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Itoo Software\RailClone Pro\LibraryDir]

Also, it could be defined globally in following system registry

Code: [Select]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro\LibraryDir]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Itoo Software\RailClone Pro\LibraryDir]

One of our users has written a maxscript to add directories to the library automatically which you can find here, we haven't tested it but you may find it useful.

I hope that helps, please let me know if you have any further questions.

Many thanks!

Exaclty what I needed, thank you! I should have found that post with my searches but I guess I wasn't using the right terms.
