Lately I have been working with images inside Rhino and I have been having a really really bad time.
Context: I am working on Dropbox, placing images from a Dropbox folder into my Rhino workspace. The Rhino file is also saved on Dropbox. The images have many different file paths and are not located in the same folder of the Rhino file.
Problem: One day an embedded files folder appeared on my Dropbox. Didn’t gave it much attention. Another day, after an unusual long saving time, I got a message inside Rhino: ‘You are attempting to embbed ‘x’ MB of support files rhino’. I clicked no.
I kept adding images to my Rhino file. I then discovered some images where pointing to the Embedded Folder and some were pointing to their original Dropbox path. What a mess!
I decided to start fresh.
Expected: I don’t want Rhino to be slow and have infinite saving times. Thus, I want my images linked, not embedded. Also, I don’t want an Embedded Folder, I want all my images to maintain their original path.
When I am done, I want an option to export or ‘save as’ a copy of my Rhino file + the Embedded Folder, this would enable me to share my Rhino file + the images/textures, pretty much what an InDesign package does.
Is this already possible with Rhino?
Also, how does one manage links inside Rhino? Do I need to check materials one by one? I would like to see a list/table of all my links, with their respective paths, and state (missing, ok, etc)
