Multiple Media storage drives
on Jun 13, 2012 at 4:40:31 pm

I started to watch the new Smoke signals (episode 3) and Marc-André mentions in the beginning that you need to choose a specific media storage drive for your media and render files etc. I started to think about this, as I only has some 500 GB left on the drive I was thinking about using.

Can I change (choose another) media storage drives in the near future? Maybe, by making a change somewhere in the preferences or "tell" Smoke when I start a new job for a client, this is the drive for a particular job?

Or do I need to re-install Smoke if I take a drive off-line? It's sounds so definite when he says you have to choose the drive carefully.

Looking forward to getting to know Smoke. I've looked at videos from Grant, and they were great.

From the post below this one....


Maybe this will help you. I found this post on the Autodesk AREA:


We have just created a video tutorial showing how to remove the old storage folder and how to define a new one:
