Dont use symbols in your paths

Posted: April 10, 2010 at 3:19 pm


I’ve been having issues getting shaders to open in Renderman/Slim for a few weeks now. Couldn’t figure out why. Turns out - it was compiling shaders to art/A&M/projectname/…… which apparently it has the capability to do. It just doesn’t have the ability to READ from a filepath with a symbol in it. I moved the project from underneath A&M and all of a sudden it started working again. I guess they aren’t escaping their paths correctly on read. Don’t you just love running software originally written for linux?
