bifcmd with rebel pack and other custom compounds

Hi,

how does bifcmd.exe lookup for additional compounds like rebel pack and so on.

The BIFROST_LIB_CONFIG_FILES variable is set in the maya.env.

Do I have to set it as a gloabl system variable?

Or is there any way to set it as an extra bifcmd-option?

You can put your compound folder anywhere just need to let Maya knows where it is through the Maya.env. 

Mine is in dropbox.

Hi,

 thanks for the reply, but that's not what I'm looking for.

I want to simulate my compounds by commandline with bifcmd.exe. And I need to know, how to link all these extra libraries to bifcmd.exe.

Inside Maya the link to the libraries exist.

Found the  solution.

Setting  BIFROST_LIB_CONFIG_FILES  in the system enviroment variable didn't work for some reason. Instead I created a batchfile, where I set BIFROST_LIB_CONFIG_FILES before rendering with bifcmd.exe.
