I’ve read through the documentation on cross-platform path mapping but I’m still struggling.
I am using the free license to test a Windows machine and an OSX machine.
In this example I’m simply changing the Windows path to Mac.
The log shows
CheckPathMapping: Swapped “A:\RenderFarmRepository\jobs\Test 01\Composition1.comp” with “Volumes/ARCHIVE/RenderFarmRepository/jobs/Test 01/Composition1.comp”
Which looks good to me, but it then immediately fails with:
RenderPluginException – Error: Error: Could not find a part of the path “/Applications/Thinkbox/Deadline10/Resources/Volumes/ARCHIVE/RenderFarmRepository/jobs/Test 01/Composition1.comp”. (System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException)
It looks like it’s adding /Applications/Thinkbox/Deadline10/Resources/ onto the path and I cannot find why or how!
Secondly, I’m having to drill right down into the job folder because simply swapping “\ARCHIVE\RenderFarmRepository” for “/Volumes/ARCHIVE/RenderFarmRepository” creates paths with incorrect forward /\ e.g.
Any help would be appreciated
