How to Share a File (Pack-n-go)

Post by Fletch » Sun Sep 20, 2009 6:50 pm

So you have a scene with IES files, and hi-resolution or special materials with reflection or bump maps.

You want to share it with another Twilight user to render.

How can I quickly gather all these images and IES files... I don't even remember what I have in there?!

How to Share a Twilight Render scene:
  1. Open the Render Window
  2. Export as XML and say "yes" when it asks if you want to save textures and IES files.
  3. Copy the .skp file into the folder with the textures, IES, and XML format file.
  4. Delete the .xml file.
  5. Copy any Sky or HDR Image manually into the folder.
  6. Zip the folder and send to a friend with Twilight.
  7. They can now open the scene and hit render.

I was starting to worry about losing track of external textures. In Art-lantis, this was a nightmare.
This will be my "archive project" method from now on.
