Autodesk Smoke export problem

Disable additional network interfaces

  1. Open System Preferences > Network and make sure only one network interface is enabled, preferably the one that was enabled when you initially installed Smoke.
  2. Then select the network interface in the left-hand pane and click Advanced in the right-hand pane.
  3. Make sure Configure IPv6 is set to “Link-local only” in the TCP/IP tab.
  4. Also, if you have installed Parallels Desktop, VMWare, Oracle VirtualBox or any other application that creates virtual network interfaces, try to temporarily disable those interfaces to see whether export starts working.
  5. Restart your Mac if you made any change to the network settings, then delete all stalled Backburner jobs and attempt to export again.

Fix the “App can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer” Error in Mac OS X

Temporarily Get Around “App Can’t Be Opened” Gatekeeper Alert Message

This is probably the best option for most users, since it maintains some security:

  1. Right-click (or control-click) the application in question and choose “Open”
  2. Click the “Open” button at the next dialog warning to launch the app anyway

You can do this with any third party app that gives you this warning dialog and open it anyway.

Disable GateKeeper’s Unidentified App Developer Prevention Completely

This is generally best for advanced users who know what apps to trust and not to trust:

  1. Launch System Preferences from the Apple  menu
  2. Choose “Security & Privacy” and then click the “General” tab, followed by clicking the lock icon in the corner to unlock the settings
  3. Look for “Allow applications downloaded from:” and choose “Anywhere”
  4. Accept the security warning and allow
  5. You can now launch any app from any location or developer
