Connect to workgroups with a .data file


New in the Softimage 2011 Subscription Advantage Pack
You can now use a workgroup_path.data file to specify your workgroups.

At startup, Softimage scans the Factory (installation) and User folders for a workgroup_path.data file, and connects to all the workgroups listed in that file.

The workgroup_path.data file is a plain text file that can contain multiple directory paths. Each path must be added on a separate line and each line must end with a newline character. For example:

C:\Users\blairs\Documents\Support\Workgroups\studioNEST
\\server\Softimage\workgroups\Shaders

  1. Nice, but I’m still using my Softimage’s user folder as workgroup for other slaves, cause installing shaders and addons on workgroup, isn’t working as well as on user’s..
