Package Manager Quick Install Beta

We are testing out a new Package Manager tool that will make managing and installing all your animation tools much simpler. This is a limited beta for the moment and not all of the animation tools have been updated to use this. More updates to come and feedback is welcome! 

Package Manager

The package manager is a system for installing and managing all of your eblabs.com animation tools.

Package Manager Quick Start

Shelf Button

The Package Manager can be found on the eblabs shelf.

Add New Tool

Once you have the Package Manager up and running, installing and updating new tools is quick and easy.

Steps

2. Click on "Add Package" and locate the package you'd like to install. image

Troubleshooting

Pre-Maya 2017u5 Installation

We are working to improve the install process for older versions of Maya. Here is a work around to help when the drag and drop installer isn't recognized.

Steps
We can actually run the installation process manually from the script editor.

Copy/Paste the contents of the installer into a Python tab of the script editor.
eblabs_drag_drop_install.py
onMayaDroppedPythonFile()

Add one additional line at the end. Make sure there aren't any tabs or spaces in front of this.

Click Run image
Voila image
This will launch the installer.

Note for Macs, from here you will need to follow the "Offline Install" method.

    • Hi Ramon,

      Thanks for letting me know! I just checked the links and didn’t find a broken one, would you mind giving me a bit more info?

      If you’re looking to get the World Space Tool up and running manually, Ive updated the World Space Tool docs with more info.

      All the best,

    • Hi,
      Can you walk me through the steps you are taking? At what point does the installation fail? When dragging the .py script into Maya? or after this at some point?
      If there are any error messages, please include these.
      Thanks!

    • When I drag&drop the eblabs_drag_drop_install.py into Maya there pops up “unrecognized file type”

  1. Hi!
    I installed the “Group Move Tool” script using “Package Manager”.
    But I get an error:

    “# ” # Error: Runtime Error: file E:\Git\eblabs-hub\eblabs_hub\GroupMoveTool\scripts\GroupMoveTool.py line 317: Could not find attribute named “ebLabs_groupMoveNode.t”

    Do you think you could help me fix this error and run the script, please?

    • Hi,
      Thanks for reaching out! If you’re asking about the Group Move Tool, good timing I just released a bug fix.

      There were two issues that were happening before, that you may have been running into as well.
      1. For the tool to work, you will need to make sure you have a control(s) selected before running the tool as there isn’t a UI.
      2. The error message you saw happened when the tool was run without anything selected. The tool is fixed now, so if you happen to click it without anything selected, nothing will happen and you shouldnt see an error message.

      Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
