View Full Version : Unlock Fluid Cache Attributes?

08 August 2008, 11:48 PM
Hey guys, is there any way to unlock the attributes of the fluid cache node, specifically the cacheName attribute so that you can input a new path?

Anyone have any ideas?

why not do it the other way around and change the name of your cache to the one that you need.

or just go into your fluid attributes and specify the fluid cache name in something like " cache_fluidShape1 "

Because instead of renaming the cache files, i need to tell it to look in another location. I would change the cache name, but its locked, thats why I want to unlock the nodes attributes.

Have you tried to unlock any of the attributes or change the path using the script editor yet?

Try this:
setAttr -lock false cache_FluidShape.cacheName;

Changing cache_FluidShape to the name of the cache node in question, of course.
