How to install

Standalone Houdini install Maya install Nuke install 3DsMax install

You can use single module installation for each case. Just extract module multi_script_editor to somewhere (no spaces and non ascii characters in path) and add this path to PYTHONPATH before start your app.

For example:

Extract to '/home/username/myscripts/multi_script_editor'

Add this path to PYTHONPATH environment variable

Windows:

set PYTHONPATH=c:/users/username/myscripts

Linux

export PYTHONPATH=/home/username/myscripts

Python

os.environ['PYTHONPATH'] = '/home/username/myscripts'

Do this for each app.
