Turning Off the Shake UNC Setting

To make sharing and volume mounting work smoothly in this setup, you need to turn
off the Shake UNC setting on each computer. The UNC setting uses the entire file
pathname, with the network address, in a convention that starts with
//ComputerName/DriveName/path. You don’t want Shake to use this filenaming convention
because it conflicts with the file sharing and volume mounting used in this setup.

Note: All the media volumes should have the same name.

In the three steps below, you make this change in a Shake startup .h file. As described in
the Shake documentation, the startup .h files, located in the startup directory, are used
to customize Shake settings (similar to setting preferences).

To turn off the UNC setting, do the following on each of the computers


Log in as the user who will use Shake on the computer.


Double-click the Terminal icon in /Applications/Utilities/ to open a Terminal window.


Enter these two command lines in the Terminal window, pressing Return after each
command line:

mkdir -p ~/nreal/include/startup/

echo 'script.uncFileNames = 0;' > ~/nreal/include/startup/UNC_off.h
