Setting Project Environment Variables With A Batch Script

Here's a quick tutorial on how to set set project environment variables. I tend to do this at the beginning of the project and use the .bat as a launcher whenever I need to open a file for that certain project.

Here is a link to some variables. There are many more undocumented variables

Katana Variables:

Mari Variables:

Nuke Variables:

Maya Variables:

Houdini Variables:

Substance Variables:

Here are the common ones I use for Mari

SET OCIO=insertPathHere

This sets the config.ocio

SET MARI_CACHE=insertPathhere

This one changes the cache so you wont be working out of your documents but instead out of a folder in the project location
