additional temporary directory. Seemed to work well as I needed
access to more HD space. But would writing to the Mac's larger /
faster drive provide a speed benefit, especially since the rendering
was being done over the network?
I'll have to try that again.
Now - what about Enblend / Smartblend. Will they also use the
external drive (if set as the preferred directory in PTgui's
preferences) to write their temp files to. I know that on the Mac
(when using Xblend to pBlend to Enblend combo) that the files are
written to the boot directory (unless Enblend is started from the
command line, I think).
