Texture search paths

With Arnold there are two things in an ASS file that specify the location of a texture file:

  • The texture filename, which can be an absolute or relative path.
  • The texture_searchpath in the render options. The texture_searchpath is used only if the texture filename is a relative path (for example: “sourceimages/example.tiff”.
  • For example, if the texture filename was a relative path, you might have something like this in an ASS file:

     texture_searchpath "//server/projects/test"
     filename "sourceimages/noicon.png"
