Hi,

We are trying to render files created on windows on our linux render farm.

Unfortunately, we have have some reference errors :

Can you tell how to convert automatically windows file path into linux file path please ?

I thank you in advance,

Hi,

You can't convert them automatically. However one thing you should try is gathering the project. This collects the project and all its assets together into a folder, and it will rewrite a copy of the project file so the paths shouldn't be a problem. This feature was designed with render farms in mind. You can find out more here:
