Hi everyone, it’s been about a year since i’ve used mGear. I can’t seem to get it to work properly in maya at the moment. Im using Maya 2022 with build 3.0.11 don’t know if it’s a compatibility issue or something. The python script doesn’t seem to be working but i did manage to get my old rigs to work again, there’s just no mGear menu, did things change? I used version 3.0.2 last time I was familiar with it.
mGear 3.7.11 is the first version to support Maya 2022. You’ll need to upgrade, or use an older version of Maya.
Sorry, I just checked and I am using the latest version of mGear
When I try to use the python script i get
(name ‘long’ is not defined #)
What Python script are you running? Is this your own post script? Or a script in mGear?
That sounds like a Python 3 error. You are trying to run some Python2.7 in a Python 3 environment.
Change from “long” to “int”. python 3.x - NameError: global name 'long' is not defined - Stack Overflow
There might be a few more syntax changes you need to make. You can google “python 2 to 3” for some tips. But if it is an error in an mGear script, post the full error, so the bug can be found and fixed.
Here’s the full error message.
Error: NameError: file C:/Users/LuisH/Downloads/mgear_3.7.11\drag_n_drop_install.py line 40: name ‘long’ is not defined
When i bring in the script through the script editor it says,
Error: NameError: file line 26: name ‘file’ is not defined
Oh yeah, sorry my reply was misleading. The latest release is 4.0.9 Releases · mgear-dev/mgear4 · GitHub
Version 4 begins to support Python 3.
As far as I remember, version 4.0.3 was the first version to support Python 3 in Maya 2022. You could probably run 3.7.11 if you run Maya 2022 in Python 2 mode. But no guarantees.
Ok so, i’m using the newest build 4.0.9 however, i still don’t have the menu. No bugs nothing of nothing to be seen. What should I do? Is it possible that maybe it’s got something to do with maya and i should launch it as if i were for the first time?
@Luis_HerreraPortillo Sorry for the late reply
Do you have pymel installed? Pymel is now optional on the latest Maya versions
