Problem with facial rigger on maya 2022

when I try to open facial rigger in maya 2022 this error appears

everything works fine excepts facial rigger, i use version 4.0.3
how i can solve this?


I think they need to upgrade it in the next upcoming versions, in order for it to work with python 3. For now you can add this flag in the maya.exe shortcut target properties of windows and it should work.

-pythonver 2

thank you so much that solved it for now

Is there more to the error? Please paste the full stack-trace if you can.

Python 3 should be working, and if there is a bug it can be fixed.

But this error only shows what caused a Maya script to fail. Does your full error show what line in the facial rigger is causing the problem?

Or at least please mention which facial rigger tool you were using, or what you were doing when the error happened.


I think the issue was fixed here

I need to do another hotfix release before the end of the year :slight_smile:
But you can grab it directly from GitHub if you need it sooner :sweat_smile:
