This is an old revision of the document!
If you need to make computer calculations for various scenes using the same content, you can upload your content just once on a FTP account. Then, you only need to include in your .vub file the elements that have changed from one scene to another. (for instance, the .blend file)
If you want to benefit from this option, please contact us. We will create for you a FTP account and a temporary storage file on the RANCH. You will receive your credentials by e-mail.
Please, be so kind as waiting our confirmation that your FTP account has been created prior to start any render.
You can eventually zip your project folder (with 7-Zip, Winrar, etc…) in order to create an archive file. You will need to rename the extension into .vub.
As soon as the RANCH will unzip your archive, it will detect the UseLocalAssets.txt file and will automatically add the content of the FTP folder classroom into the .vub archive file in order to create the complete project.
Warning : if you choose the automatic process, please verify that the path of your folders in the Blender scene are relative and that they are directed toward the correct folder!
Please make sure that all the content necessary for your project has been uploaded onto the RANCH prior to submit your project. Otherwise, the validation process may create a project without all the contents: this would lead to some issues in your final render.
