These settings specify the search paths used by MtoA to find plug-ins, procedurals, shaders and textures.
Enables absolute pathnames for file textures. For example:
If you select a texture using the file browser it will work both with absolute texture paths enabled and disabled. However, if you manually edit the text field it will fail, unless you put the image in the sourceimages folder (which is the expected behavior).
A toggle for enabling or disabling absolute/relative pathnames for procedurals (absolute by default).
It is possible to change the path name of a procedural outside of the main project. MtoA will search for the ass file in both the file path of the stand-in as well as in the path set by the 'Procedural Search Path'. For example, if an ass file is saved in a folder in C:/temp/ass it will also search the sub folders for the ass file.
Here you can set the path where Arnold will look for shaders.
