I got into mGear (v4.0.9) earlier in the year when testing out rigging solutions for a test short I was making in Maya 2020. I loved it and am starting the rigging for a longer project now, but have since upgraded to Maya 2023.
I’m having an issue though where the mGear dropdown doesn’t load in 2023 when I open Maya, but it did in 2020 (and still does). All the plugins are there in the plug in manager and are all supposedly loaded but the menu item won’t appear.
I’ve gone through some older threads about a similar thing in 2022 and I have made sure pyMel is installed (by both installing it after installing 2023, which did nothing and then a clean install of 2023 with pyMel installed from the outset and still it did nothing.)
I’m not overly technical with python etc, but the only way I can seem to actually load it is by dragging and dropping the userSetup.py file from the module / scripts folder into the Maya script editor and running that. It appears after that, but I worry that I would need to run that everytime and if I forgot to before opening a scene I’m going to get the rig freaking out - that happened to me a few times when working at Megalis and I loaded rigs without having mGear enabled, the results were not pretty haha!!
Wondering if anyone has any idea what might be stopping it from auto loading, I think I’ve done everything by the book. Any help would be really appreciated!
Thanks in advance
