probably someone already stumbled across this and even created a post for it, but I didn't find exactly, what I was looking for.
At our office we use both railclone pro and forest pack pro. On each client in our network we have multiple users. Most employees use the same user account, but there are exceptions.
Since the introduction of the update manager, the texture paths have been moved to the user folders, which is a pain to deal with, when you have more than one user. We use the workstations for rendering. So when they are left on and fp and rc are not configured for every user, we have missing assets in our renders.
Our first solution was to copy all appdata for rc and fp from the account that installed the packages to the other users, but: this costs time and diskspace.
So our goal is to move everything to a network drive.
I managed to setup the rc and fp libraries on the network, change all paths in "customize user paths", but still rc is using maps from the "appdata" folder and I found no option to change this.
EDIT: after deleting all paths again, I managed to make rc use the network maps.
Also fp is using distance maps that are saved on the local harddrive, although the path has been deleted from costum user paths and the network path has been assigned.
Many thanks in advance for any help or redirection to an already existing topic.
We are running 3ds max 2018, fp 6.1.1, rc 3.20
So, it sum it up: Each user should use the same network path for all rc and fp elements. Is there a way to deactivate the rc standard library?
If you need any additional information, please tell me.
