Zync Plugin for Autodesk's Maya

Notice: this project has been archived and is no longer being maintained.

For a list of Maya versions supported on Zync please see our main website. You can find additional info in our documentation.


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.

Config File

Contained in scripts/ you'll find a file called Make a copy of this file in the same directory, and rename it

Edit in a Text Editor. It defines one config variable - API_DIR - the full path to your zync-python directory.

Set 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:


Once zync.mod is in place, restart Maya. You should now see a "Zync" shelf with the Zync icon present.
