Need a little help please.
Spent half a day trying to install appleseed for Maya. Somehow I cannot succeeded to get maya load the appleseed-maya.mod file. I’m doing exactly how it is described in appleseed-maya installation doc. I tried by adding MAYA_MODULE_PATH to maya.env file and to add system environment variables but maya not seeing appleseed plugin in anyway. Then I decide to try add all paths manually and added to maya.env following:
APPLESEED_COREDATAPATH = C:\ProgramData\appleseed
APPLESEED_PLUG_IN_PATH = %APPLESEED_COREDATAPATH%\plug-ins\2017
APPLESEED_SEARCHPATH = %APPLESEED_COREDATAPATH%\shaders
APPLESEED_SCRIPT_PATH = %APPLESEED_COREDATAPATH%\scripts
APPLESEED_RENDER_DESC_PATH = %APPLESEED_COREDATAPATH%\renderDesc
APPLESEED_XBMLANGPATH = %APPLESEED_COREDATAPATH%\icons%B
APPLESEED_CUSTOM_TEMPLATE_PATH = %APPLESEED_COREDATAPATH%\scripts\appleseedMaya\AETemplates
APPLESEED_SHELF_PATH = %APPLESEED_COREDATAPATH%\prefs\shelves
APPLESEED_PRESET_PATH = %APPLESEED_COREDATAPATH%\presets
MAYA_PLUG_IN_PATH = %APPLESEED_PLUG_IN_PATH%
PYTHONPATH = %APPLESEED_SCRIPT_PATH%
XBMLANGPATH = %APPLESEED_XBMLANGPATH%
MAYA_RENDER_DESC_PATH = %APPLESEED_RENDER_DESC_PATH%
MAYA_CUSTOM_TEMPLATE_PATH = %APPLESEED_CUSTOM_TEMPLATE_PATH%
PATH = %APPLESEED_COREDATAPATH%\bin
MAYA_PRESET_PATH = %APPLESEED_PRESET_PATH%
MAYA_SHELF_PATH = %APPLESEED_SHELF_PATH%
Everything according to my appleseed folder path and what is in appleseed-maya.mod file. So after that I can see appleseedmaya plugin but Maya gives me this error when I’m trying to load it:
// Error: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2018/scripts/others/pluginWin.mel line 290: Unable to dynamically load : C:/ProgramData/appleseed/plug-ins/2017/appleseedMaya.mll
The specified procedure could not be found.
// Error: file: C:/Program Files/Autodesk/Maya2018/scripts/others/pluginWin.mel line 290: The specified procedure could not be found.
Which indicates that I’m doing something wrong. Checked 100 times but cannot find mistakes in maya variables.
Anyway if someone could help me with installation I will really appreciated since I’m out of ideas on that…
