Read Files from Server?


(Jonathan Corriveau) #1

Loading imagery from local hard drives works fantastic, but I’m having some trouble accessing files from our NAS / Server. Any files outside of C: or D: are loading with errors. In the settings, I toggled the “use drive letters…” option but it was not loading the server location still.

For Example, this file path works:
C:/Users/User/Desktop/image.exr

This one does not:
/BLACKHOLE/Projects/testing/image.exr

One other note, the console shows

QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: Y:/
QFileSystemWatcher: failed to add paths: Z:/

I never use natron so this could be utter nonsense, but… are you on windows? If so network paths usually look like \\servername\sharename. Failing that you could try mapping a drive letter with the OS manually first and refer to that.

Hey wow, mapping the network drive to X: worked
