View Full Version : Problem with ScreamerNet

Hello everybody, I got a problem with ScreamerNet.

I can't render scenes I've created on another computer.

I set the network up, LW config files, paths and everything else and
if I create a try scene from the beginning, everything works great.

Problems comes when I try to render scenes I've created on another
computer which have all the internal paths referring to the computer
on which they've been created, that are somthing like C:\....

I need to know if there is a simple way to modify those paths stored
inside the .lws and .lwo files, because otherwise ScreamerNet doesn't

I tried also some 3rd part render controller like those on the Newtek
forum, but none works. Is there something that I need to know to make
them work?

Thanck You :D

The .lws file is basically a text file, so you could open it in Notepad, do a find and replace function to replace all instances of C: with whatever your network drive is (mine is S: ). Save the file and it should work fine. Try opening it in LW before you netrender just to be safe.

The real trouble comes when your scenes and objects are looking for images on other drives (a bad habit I still haven't quite gotten over, like biting my nails).
