Ventuz project default file path

Post by Luke47921 » 04 Feb 2016, 12:56

I'm trying to access some data that is stored within the project folder, and I don't want to use a specific path so that I can move my project folder around. If I choose the path from within the node using the file browser, I get the path ventuz://Data/Data.txt, which works within the designer. However, if I export the project to a presentation and run it (still from withing the same project folder), the path doesn't seem to work (It will work if I use a direct path, for example: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Ventuz4\Projects\ProjectName\Data\Data).

Is this something that I'm doing wrong on my end, or is this a bug within Ventuz?

use the url node. Set it to FILE. Use ".\Images\image.png". This will always resolve to the correct path relatove to the project or later the VPR. So the important part being the dot in the filename.

Best,

The . at the start actually stopped it from working, but using \Images\image.png in the url node set to file works great.

Thanks!

Turns out I'm still having a problem, this works fine in the designer, but won't work when it's exported as a presentation. Any idea why?

you need to put the vpr into the ventuz root path.
