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?

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.

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! grin
