PRB: Particle Databases That Do Not Appear in File Browsers

Last reviewed: June 20, 1997
Article ID: Q170169

The information in this article applies to:

  • Softimage 3D for Windows NT, version 3.51

SYMPTOMS

You are unable to see one or more of your Particle databases in a file browser.

CAUSE

One of the following two conditions may be the cause:

  • Particle has a 78 character directory path limit, therefore directory paths that are longer than this do not appear in file browsers.
  • When you run SOFTIMAGE Particle 3.51 on Windows NT 4.0, if the directory path does not end with a forward slash (\), SI3D scenes will not appear in the file browser.

RESOLUTION

If the directory path where your databases reside has more than 78 characters, move the files to a directory with fewer than 78 characters.

If the directory path does not end with a forward slash (\), change it by adding one.

STATUS

This problem has been corrected for the next release.
