Metahumans - On a Network, DNA rig files issue

Hi there,

I can download and work with metahumans on each of my individual computers, however when I try to open up a maya rig file on another computer on the network, then the face rig seems to break. Sure its there in the scene, however it does not control the joints/blendshapes anymore. My guess is that when maya opens the file theres a code line in the rig somewhere that wants to pick up a DNA file. Normally something that would be picked up from the SourceAssets folder. My question is how do i repath this in maya to pick up the DNA file from a server location?

Kind regards,
Micha

SOLVED: Figured that I could just update the path in the maya asci file.

You can also do that from within the scene usin this snippet:

cmds.createEmbeddedNodeRL4(
n="rigLogicNode", 
dfp="C:\MyMetahuman_rl.dna",  //using _rl cuz it seems to be the behavior part of dna
jn="DHIhead:<objName>.<attrName>", 
amn="FRM_WMmultipliers.<objName>_<attrName>", 
bsn="<objName>_blendShapes.<attrName>", 
cn="<objName>.<attrName>"
)

it’s basically recreates connections from controls->rigLogic->bones.
