Did you setup storage when you installed?

Do you have an entry under media storage in the smoke setup utility?

Hey Edd

I checked that and I did have to reset it up - I can get in to the program now -but my gateway still doesnt work and now I cant even import media the old way --under my I/O tab the video tab is greyed out now

Do you need to have a media drive just for Smoke -cause the drive I have for my Smoke media storage is the same dive I want to import media from. Do those have to be separate?

Would love some help?

thanks

Matt

Smoke needs a dedicated "framestore" to import and render to. Think of it like a Scratch disk. So what you are trying to do isn't going to work.
