this isn't so much of a request as a " i can't believe it works this way... I really need you guys to fix it."

the
SaveRGBImagesPrefix
entry in the scene file format is a Global path. this creates all sorts of problems. not the least of which in rendering, especially if you have a farm that utilizes a different reference or platform to the content directory. the work arounds are Maniacal.

it Absolutely needs to be Content directory relative.

heres is a pleasant example:

what it does now:
drive/dir/dir/dir/contentDir/Images/renderFolder

what it needs to do:
/Images/renderFolder

please please please fix this behavior. its something that afaik can't be easily overridden in screamernet mode -3. it causes a Great deal of headaches there as well as moving to a new machine, and even during a cross platform copy.

and the kicker is that there is NO need for it!
