Zync Plugin for Autodesk's Maya
This plugin depends on zync-python, the Zync Python API.
Before trying to install zync-maya, make sure to download zync-python and follow the setup instructions there.
Note that the simplest and recommended way to install Zync plugins is through the Zync Client Application (see instructions). The steps described below are for advanced users and we recommend to proceed with them only if you need to modify the plugin code for your custom needs.
Clone the Repository
Clone this repository to the desired location on your local system. If you're doing a site-wide plugin install, this will have to be a location accessible by everyone using the plugins.
scripts/ you'll find a file called
config_maya.py.example. Make a copy of this file in the same directory, and rename it
config_maya.py in a Text Editor. It defines one config variable -
API_DIR - the full path to your zync-python directory.
API_DIR to point to the zync-python you installed earlier, save the file, and close it.
Now you'll need to point Maya to this folder to load it on startup.
Create a file named
zync.mod with the following contents:
+ zync 1.0 Z:/path/to/plugins/zync-maya
This file can be placed anywhere within Maya's module search path. The module search path is defined by the
MAYA_MODULE_PATH environment settings, as described in the Maya docs.
You can view your
MAYA_MODULE_PATH setting by running the following in the Maya Script Editor:
zync.mod is in place, restart Maya. You should now see a "Zync" shelf with the Zync icon present.
