Change On-The-Fly Image Paths
Type: Utility accessed from VR Model Sets "Misc" menu.
Frame image on-the-fly model data are saved in VMF files. VMF files are self-contained, they link to no external files except the raw images. Hence, edits to cameras, EO files, vim's, etc. have not effect on models after they are set. This is intended, and makes for easy passing of solutions with minimal support files. To pass models to compilers, you only need to send them the VMFs. However, the raw images path on the compiler machines and AT machines may be different. This utility is used to correct broken image paths in VMF files.
When the command is first run from the drop down menu it prompts the user to select the VMF files to be changed. If there are no broken paths you'll see a message similar to:
If broken paths are found you'll see an information box that lists the broken paths and a browse dialog will open prompting you to select the correct location for the images.
In the example above, only three of the 8 image paths were selected. This resulted in the following warning:
Clicking "Yes" will open another browse dialog so that more images can be selected more images. This permits the images to be in separate folders. Clicking "No" will cause the software to fix the subset of paths that it can:
