The computer I was working on died and I'm now working on a different computer. On the now dead computer, I had some projects that used the Second Life Avatar meshes, which were on the G: drive of the old computer. I restored the projects and avatar meshes to the new computer's C: drive but the projects are looking for the SL_Male.obj and SL_Female.obj on the G: drive. How do I correct this?

    Where these .daz scenes or .dsf/.duf?

    They are on the new computer's C: drive.

    Yes, but what format are they in? DAZ format cannot be changed, but DUF can be edited.

    They were saved as scenes, they are in .duf files. I look at them in notepad and it doesn't look editable to me.

    If I use File > "Save As" > "Scene Subset", it gives me a window "Scene Subset Save Options", and if I uncheck "compress file", the resulting file can be opened in a text editor like Wordpad.
    I don't see that option when just saving as an entire scene; not sure if there's an option to do it there too or not, but if nobody else knows perhaps you could just save it as a scene subset, make your changes, then resave it as a scene again.

    They are just in compressed format, you can use 7ZIP or WINrar or WINZIp to open them, and edit the result, there is alos a way of reading them insde DS4.5, I'll see if I can find it for you.


    EDIT:

    I believe that you can use Window > Tabs > Batch Convert to do the job as well.

    I was able to uncompress them and edit to change to the new drive letter and they read in fine. Thanks for the help! :-)
