URGENT - Need a way to quickly change links to images
We just changed the network path to our files and now when we load a max file it takes 5 minutes to load since it's searching for the images, and we then need to go in "Bitmap/Photometric Paths" to change the link to the images, but we then have to wait 45 minutes, only to have that "Bitmap/Photometric Paths" window open. We have hundreds of projects here... it's really depressive to think we'll have to wait 45 minutes per project to update them.
We can't simply go in "Customize user paths" and put the new paths there because that doesn't change the links in the .max document, it simply searches other folders, but we need the files to link directly to the right place since we're using a renderfarm and since we don't want to have to wait 5 minutes every time we open a document.
What I would want is to have a script that would search for every image that's in \\Network1\ and change it to \\Network2\ automatically, without having max searching for it. That way I wouldn't have to wait 45 minutes per project.
Is that possible??
If anyone can help, you will make me and my partners so happy!
