Correclty resolve ICE node strings to cache files using this ICE Node contextual menu.
In Softimage 2012 it’s possible to load ICE caches using the new string nodes. Unfortunately after picking a file name, it doesn’t often resolve correctly to the cache file, particularly when there is frame padding involved. So, it’s necessary to manually edit the strings.
For those who are too lazy for such busy work, here’s a simple plugin that’ll allow you to pick a file and produce a string that’ll correctly point to the cache file.
Simply right-click one of the supported string nodes (string, string file path, string file path sequence) then click the contextual menu.
