File Paths for Pan & Zoom

We’re using Pan & Zoom in a shared workspace setup on Avid, with mixed and PC and Mac systems.

One of the problems with Avid’s own pan & zoom is that it occasionally loses the file path and then has to be re-done. We’re hoping the S_PanZoom could be more stable.

One problem we’re finding is that the path between Mac and PC is different (/Volumes/drive vs. Drive:). Is there are nifty trick like path substitution like Resolve offers to harmonize multi-OS paths?

It seems to thwart the disk cache as well, as the image only comes up blank on the other systems.

How do people use S_PanZoom in shared multi-OS environments?
